Moth: Why I Teach
In 1989, the use of DNA evidence in criminal cases was nearly unheard of. That year, two lawyers pressed an incredibly busy Eric Lander—a leading contributor to the Human Genome Project—to testify about this emerging technology in their case. The biologist and geneticist would have flat out refused, but the lawyers played on Lander’s greatest passion: his love of teaching. WSF teams up with what The Wall Street Journal calls “New York’s hottest and hippest literary ticket,” The Moth, for an innovative series of unpredictable storytelling.
