Despite the magical trappings of fantasy, a well-designed world holds at least a smidgen of reality. In order to get at the science that underlies resurrection in Nnedi Okorafor‘s futuristic fantasy “The Book of Phoenix,” this podcast talks to Ramin Rahni, a Ph.D. candidate studying plant regeneration at New York University’s Birnbaum Laboratory.

This podcast pilot is currently stand-alone.
