Podcast Series RedHanded

In a small town in the Dominican Republic, more than one percent of boys are born as ‘Güevedoces’. The name, which translates to ‘penis at twelve’, refers to children who are assigned female at birth, but develop male genitalia only at the onset of puberty. This week, Hannah and Suru take a look at the fascinating science behind the phenomenon – and how it’s influenced modern medicine.
