List

Hello!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve fallen off the face of the blogging planet. This is because I have been heavily involved in 3 super-exciting things:

1) I have become a regular contributor to the Science…sort of podcast. We discuss things that are science, things that are sort of science, and things that wish they were science.

2) The hubby and I have started our own podcast! Check us out at The Weekly Weinersmith!

3) I have been involved in an exciting experiment to crowd-fund science projects called the SciFund Challenge! I’ve done a bit of blogging about the process of creating and pushing a crowdfunded project, and the fruits of our efforts go LIVE tonight!

So I’m sorry that I’ve been away from my blog for an extended period of time. I will continue to blog about my parasite-related adventures from time-to-time, and hope that you’ll get your more regularly-scheduled Kelly-fix by checking out one of the two podcasts with which I am now associated.
