Welcome Coast to Coast Listeners!

276-0425132040-coast-to-coastMy little blog was linked to by Coast to Coast AM, one of the most popular radio shows in the world. I am delighted to have the privilege of being a guest on the program on Sunday, Sept. 13.

I am writing this in advance of the show but I’m assuming that you are probably here because you heard my guttural New Jersey accent telling scary stories about people dying in their sleep.

Here’s that story: Sudden and Unexplained: The Sleep Deaths that Inspired Freddy Krueger

For more journalism with a capital “J,” here’s my recent look into a NASA fueled study into using cryogenic sleep to travel to Mars: How Traveling to Deep Space In Cryogenic Sleep Could Actually Work.

If you like the occasional drink, you might enjoy my Huffington Post story about hangover cures from earlier this summer. 12 Miracle Hangover Cures, Tested & Debunked

Feel free to scroll down to read more stories on this site. They’re mostly about music and pop culture. Thanks for stopping by.
