I had a fun interview with these local guys who are interested in the natural world and came across my fireside relaxation study article from 2014. There's the video interview below, as well as webpage with episode notes and a post-interview conversation.
I met journalist Stephanie DeMarco several years ago in Washington DC through a combined workshop of the AAAS Leshner Fellowship program for public engagement (which I was in) and another program for science journalism. She reached out to me a few months ago for a piece she was writing about therapeutic applications of tattooing for this piece in Drug Discovery News. It's a really well done article with a lot of great information and graphics. In addition to moi, she interviewed tattoo anthropologist Lars Krutak and acupuncturist/tattooist Douglas Wingate, who have been guests on the Inking of Immunity podcast I cohost, and biomedical engineer Carson Bruns, who is on our invitation list for the coming season.
I gave a reading of sections of my new book Transcendental Medication: The Evolution of Mind, Culture, and Healing last week at local bookstore Ernest & Hadley. E&H is owned and run by Easty Lambert-Brown, Ian Brown, and their daughter. Ian is a retired anthropologist and my colleague and former department chair, and Easty is his wife and proprietor of Borgo Books Press. They were kind enough to host my first book reading on September 27. I enjoyed the reading and am available for readings or academic talks!
Here are some photos from the event.
