I also got to do a fun, more long-form chat with Rachelle Saunders from Science for the People, which may be the most American I have sounded in something like 14 years. It was fun, explaining bioarchaeology in more or less the correct words, and you can listen along here too:
For now though, it is time to get ready for a summer of talks, festivals, and FINALLY some fieldwork. There's a widgety calendar thing in the sidebar that says where I'll be -- come say hi!
