2017 was a chaotic but productive year. We launched the podcast, which is up to 22 episodes, and features some of the biggest names in science communication. This list includes luminaries like Dr. Kevin Folta, Kavin Senapathy and David Zaruk.
The plan is to continue releasing approximately two interviews a month. The show will be on iTunes, Spotify and Stitcher shortly, and the audio quality will continue to improve thanks to my producer, who is a wizard with recording software and microphones. Stay tuned for more details on the podcast front.
Write Controversial Stories and you're a "Monsanto Shill"
In the meantime, I've been busy writing. I wrote a couple of original pieces for Genetic Literacy Project. Other recent articles include a co-authored piece with Kevin Folta about the Dicamba controversy, and several stories debunking activist conspiracy theories about pesticides and corporate influence on science. I also argued that capitalism promotes science literacy, so naturally I'm a paid agent of Monsanto. One person wrote to me and asked,
Cameron who exactly is funding your "freelance writing"? You aren't working in any public way yet you somehow have an incredible amount of financial resources. Strange. Do you ever plan on disclosing your financial relationships, business ties and associates? (i.e. you're funded by Monsanto and it's really fucking obvious)
Doing something right, I guess. I have a few new articles coming out soon that I'm excited about, too. I'll link to them when they're ready. If you'd like to connect with me, consider signing up for my email list and following me on twitter.
More to come.
