Description
Josiah Zayner, a former NASA scientist turned bio-hacker, seeks to rid himself of ongoing digestive issues by swapping all the bacteria living inside of him. This method involves swallowing pills made of the donor's poop, and scrubbing himself "clean" with antibiotics. Zayner shrugs off his detractors, claiming his dangerous self-treatment is worth it.
