The babes take a hard right in Episode 3 and read nonfiction: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. The cells of Henrietta Lacks, called HeLa by scientists, provided information for some of the most groundbreaking research in medical history, but were taken without Henrietta’s knowledge. This book follows the Lacks family’s journey for justice, we talk ethics and get a bit drunk.
