Happy New Year! This fall, as you might be able to tell from my voice in our later SFW Science Radio Hour episodes, was really busy and tough in multiple ways… but also really good, too! For one, Thom and I got to go to Iceland (finally) for our honeymoon and got to see this […]

SFW Science Radio Hour 20: IMCC Episode 3 (Birds!)

January 22, 2017


Hello one and all! This week we talked mostly about birds. I love birds though not as much as Thom. I’m hoping at some point in 2017 Thom and I can go bird watching mostly so I can identify a bird of prey from its silhouette alone. Bird watching can be a great way of […]
