Wed, 19 Oct 2016 04:16:56 +0000

Dan graciously had me on Roughly Speaking to discuss the recent article from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health article looking at the “100 Objects That Shaped Public Health“. My favorite? Spoiler alert: hot dogs. It was a fun conversation! Listen here.

Roughly Speaking: a primer on Zika, & some words on HIV in Baltimore

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 04:19:46 +0000

Dan Rodricks has migrated his audio work from NPR to the new podcast audio show from the Baltimore Sun, Roughly Speaking. Needless to say, it’s an outstanding program, especially for anyone interested in keeping their finger on the pulse of all things Baltimore. This past Friday, Dan interviewed me for a primer on the latest … Continue reading Roughly Speaking: a primer on Zika, & some words on HIV in Baltimore

in which I am quoted en español

Every so often, a random health news story I’ve been a part of makes it’s way into another language. Take this example from Ser Padres magazine, which was based off a article on hand washing for influenza season a few years back. It’s brief, but cool to see, nonetheless. ¡lava tus manos!

notes from the Lore of Mass Effect panel at Dragon*Con

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 20:33:42 +0000

One of the very few downsides of being a panel participant at Dragon*Con is that one can miss out on Committing Acts Of Being A Fan, i.e. attending other panels and events. This time around, I was able to make time to attend one of the panels involving the key game developers of the Mass … Continue reading notes from the Lore of Mass Effect panel at Dragon*Con

Dragon*Con goings-on

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 19:17:45 +0000

Worldcon was great, and interesting, and fun, and then it was back to the usual life-things for a week, and now I have arrived at excatly the opposite of usual life-things: Dragon*Con in Atlanta, GA. This time around I will be involved in events! Behold: Getting Away with Murder ~ Sat 01:00 pm ~ 202 … Continue reading Dragon*Con goings-on

Balticon 2015 post-mortem & Sasquan goings-on

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 23:34:01 +0000

Well, Balticon ended up being a bust, as I (possibly, with irony) came down with an awful respiratory plague in the 24 hours prior to the con starting. Which amounts to Pre-Con Crud, perhaps? I was medicated aplenty and manage to soldier through my Skeptical Journal Club talk Friday night, but afterwards slunk back to … Continue reading Balticon 2015 post-mortem & Sasquan goings-on

Run To The Hills

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 05:39:28 +0000

Iron Maiden‘s Run To The Hills has been stuck in my mind’s ear for the last week or so. The original song and video: A great performance by the stellar all female cover band, The Iron Maidens:

For those of you attending my first panel at Balticon tomorrow, here are the links to the two journal articles I will be discussing during The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Medical Studies: A Skeptical Journal Club at 4pm.
