Word of Mouth

Today I made my radio debut on New Hampshire Public Radio's Word of Mouth. They invited me to talk about my article on flavor enhancers featured in August's Scientific American. You can download my 8-minute segment here.

I was a nervous wreck, but somehow I held it together. That's despite the fact that when the producer first called, I couldn't hear anything because I had accidentally hit the mute button (I guess it mutes both ways!). Luckily, I figured out the problem fairly quickly -- but not before hanging up on him, too. Heh.

Cellphone Games

I know. I haven't posted in eons. I've lost all three of my regular readers and I should be ashamed of myself. But alas, I have been busy! Which is a good thing when it comes to, you know, paying rent and stuff like that.

In fact, I have nothing to blog about right now, either, but I will be kind enough to post a link to my latest piece, published in Canada's The Walrus magazine. It's about cover-ups in the telecommunications industry over cell phone safety. I started writing the piece as a student at NYU, and now, three years later, it's finally being published. I couldn't be more thrilled!
