This site was started as an attempt to unify my blogging efforts. It includes the show notes for my Books and Ideas Podcast. However, I do maintain a separate blog for the Brain Science Podcast, which includes more detailed show notes and posts for that podcast.

While I am no longer maintaining any other blogs, I do actively manage SCIENCEPODCASTERS.ORG, which is a group blog where science podcasters share announcements and show notes. This is a good place to find new science podcasts and we are currently looking for new members.

You can also find me on Twitter, FriendFeed and Facebook.  I am a long-time fan of Leo Laporte so I also belong to the TWiT Army Canteen.  I am less active on My Space, Pownce, and Jaiku. I no longer post to my Vox Blog or but I do post show notes to Birmingham Podcasting, but that information is generally a duplicate of what I post here.

Older Inactive Blogs:

I just joined Scientific Blogging in March, 2007, but I am not currently using that site.

My Yahoo!360 Blog contains a review of an biography of the philosopher Karl Jaspers.

My personal homepage at contains a main blog and one devoted to books. After I joined VOX I began posting most of my book review there, but since December 2006 my book reviews appear at either Books and Ideas or the Brain Science Podcast site, depending on the subject Matter

Here are links to books reviews I have posted elsewhere:

On Intelligence by Jeff Hawkins (audio)

Darwin’s Dangerous Idea by Daniel Dennett

The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky

Hard Contact by Karen Travis
