Transgenesis is a sci-fi podcast that transports listeners to a post–energy-crisis world in which humanity’s thirst for oil is satisfied through a bargain with a mysterious deep-sea species. When an oil executive goes missing aboard the deep-sea Atlas Station, the company sends agent Synøve Pan down for answers -- and she’s just the woman to get them. Welcome to the Second Oil Age.

She’s also studying biology and religion (and might possibly add psychology) at Georgia State University, in the hope of someday communicating all of the science to all of the people in as many ways as make sense. She also has combined type ADHD (which explains a lot, really), a thing about which she wishes she had known when she was a kid and just thought she was weird and/or crazy.
