Is desire a matter of medicine? Can you convict on genealogy? And what do you get the alleged bride who has it all?

We discuss all that and more on the latest episode of “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. First, we discuss a new drug meant to increase women’s sexual desire and the medical, cultural, and scientific questions tied to its pending FDA approval. Then, we dig into the first murder trial stemming from a new forensic technique that uses family trees to track down alleged criminals. STAT’s Matthew Herper joins us to explain a polarizing development in the growing field of longevity research, and then we embark upon a lightning round, touching on the reported wedding of Elizabeth Holmes, the state of biotech IPOs, and the commonality between cats and guacamole.
