What are your favorite subjects regarding science?

I enjoy exploring the psychology of belief, especially why so many people believe in psuedoscience and the paranormal despite overwhelming evidence against it. I love traditional paranormal topics like Sasquatch and Lake Monster myths.

Where do you currently get your science news?

Skeptic Magazine, Discover Magazine, The Bad Astronomy Blog, Pharyngula, CSI, Skeptic.com, Science Based Medicine Blog, National Geographic, Space.com.

What do you think will make science more appreciated and interesting to the general public?

Continuing to use science to engage people with better stories, be it biographies and profiles of scientists and their work, or fiction stories that utilize science in a positive way. Science is in everything we do, and should be celebrated.
