In the near future, athletes enhanced using tissue engineering are gods among mortals. Champion Kim McBride is at the end of her career, but years as a piece of human technology have taken their toll. Kim is on the verge of owning her body again, but corporate interests and revelations from the past threaten her future.
Inspired by Dr Sam Pashneh-Tala’s research in tissue engineering, developing treatments for injury and disease, this compelling audio play from Joe Skelton and Hannah Goraya explores the ethical issues associated with the advancement of this technology and its use in redesigning the human body.
