    Marsh is one to talk about finding the time to do anything. At one point he was presenting half the podcasts I listen to.

    Hey, Marsh, thanks for the shout-out! We’re the McGill Office for Science and Society (people always get it wrong… we should just shorten to the McGill Office and let people imagine what we do there). Anyone interested in the story behind our little viral video about bogus cancer cures that spread like wildfire online, here’s the write-up: https://reporter.mcgill.ca/how-our-deceptive-cancer-cure-video-went-viral-and-reminded-people-to-be-skeptical/

    Found Mike’s piece really interesting, not something I knew much (if anything factual) about. Alice and Marsh were both excellent in their contributions. The whole episode had a really nice conversational flow to it.

    I also found Mike’s piece interesting. It does sound a wee bit exhausting.

    Mike’s piece was very interesting and educational. I’d always assumed polyamory wasn’t for me because of insecurity, jealousy, and the phenomenal unlikeliness of finding more than one person wanting to shag me. It never occurred to me there’d be loads of admin involved too. Sod that for a game of soldiers!
