Zach and I were invited by The Story Collider to come to NYC to tell our nerdy love story to a live audience. The performance was turned into a podcast, which can be heard below, on The Story Collider website, or on iTunes. I suggest checking out The Story Collider website and podcast, as it’s filled with great stories about science in peoples’ lives.

* We do use some explicit language.
