Scientists have taken another step toward being able to edit out bad memories while leaving good ones intact — something that could one day be used to treat people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or anxiety disorders linked to painful memories. Anthony, Jeff, and special guest Vernon Shaw discuss what they would use this technology for, and whether it would be a good thing or not.
