SIM Ep 532 Chops 218: Testosterone with Dr Carole Hooven

Is testosterone a feminist issue? Well, after reading Dr Carole Hooven's new book Testosterone: The Story Of The Hormone That Dominates And Divides Us, Hannah totally thinks it is. So, she got on the Zoom with the Harvard evolutionary biologist to chat about what testosterone – or "T" – can teach us about the differences in how boys and girls play, male aggression and DSDs, often erroneously called intersex conditions. And, perhaps, most pertinently, about why all these topics remain so controversial, and how, increasingly, politics and science don't play well together.
