A Journey Through The Changing Human Body

Book Cover - Shapeshifters

To be alive is to be in perpetual metamorphosis: growing, healing, learning, aging. In "Shapeshifters," physician and writer Gavin Francis considers the inevitable changes all of our bodies undergo such as birth, puberty, and death, but also laughter, sleeping, and healing; and those that only some of our bodies will like getting a tattoo, experiencing psychosis, suffering anorexia, being pregnant, or undergoing a gender transition.

Gavin Francis is a physician and the award-winning author of four books, including "Adventures in Human Being," "Empire Antarctica;" and "True North."

Originally aired June 2018.
