Where did you go?

I know some of you are wondering--"where did you go? What happened to the show? I don't hear it on Saturday morning any more". It's true, The World Around Us is on hiatus for a while. 

I realized in January that I needed to free up some time if I was going to pursue some bigger projects, things I wouldn't be able to achieve while also working a full time job and trying to keep up with writing and producing a weekly research based radio show. Something had to give, and it was the show. WERU continued to air the show in reruns for a few months, but I believe that has ended. The great thing is that the show is archived on the WERU website forever, so you can always listen in there. And the transcripts will be posted here forever too. 

So what am I doing with my new found free time? I have a piece in the new Wild Seed journal, and am working on other freelance articles as well. And most excitingly, I'm working on a book proposal. I'll say more about it when (and if) it is finalized, but suffice to say, it builds on a lot of the work I did with the radio show, and will  continue my work of translating important and interesting scientific content into accessible information for all interested people. 

Thank you dear listeners for your support over the years. And huge thank you to WERU for providing the platform (diving board?) upon which a person with an idea could get up and share with her community. You certainly haven't heard the last of me, stay tuned.....
