The Hiatus Episode

March 7th, 2016

CarrieLynn Reinhard here, presenting this special episode for the podcast wherein Christopher Olson and I describe just how busy we are that we need to take a short break from the podcast.

We have a number of research projects coming up that require us to do presentations and meet publication deadlines. In this short episode, we discuss just what those projects are, as we would appreciate hearing your thoughts about them. We also encourage any fellow fans, students, and researchers to come to the conferences we will be at to hear about them in person. We would love to see you at C2E2, PCA, or CSCA.

These projects include the following:

And more are discussed on this episode. So while we love doing this podcast, and are not planning on stopping any time soon, we just need a bit of a break to handle these projects, and then we can return back to normal programming.
