We’re joined by filmmaker and storyteller Emily Roth to discuss everyone’s favorite dinosaur/cloning movie!
There’s a lot of DNA in Jurassic Park, and not just from dinosaurs! The novel and film’s “DNA” can be traced to real-life STEM breakthroughs and practices of the entertainment and tourism industries, and classic science fiction literature, starting with the mother of the genre, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Plus Emily gives us a filmmaker’s perspective on the whole franchise!
Find our commentary for I, Frankenstein, plus other bonus content, at Patreon.com/popdna and follow Emily on all social media!
