New novel imagines tech industry "solving" childbirth

June 04, 2018

Sometimes it seems like there's nothing that tech companies won't try to disrupt. The new novel "Mother of Invention" by Caeli Wolfson Widger takes that idea all the way to the womb. The book tells the story of a biotech startup that shortens pregnancy to just nine weeks ... and questions whether that's actually a good idea. Wolfson Widger talks with Marketplace Tech host Molly Wood about how observations from her tech recruiting firm inspired the book. (06/04/2018)
