“I think the biggest value I provide is helping people find that fine line between good science and bad science. I enjoy being able to read through scientific studies, then make them sound like English - not like a foreign language, telling people clearly why bad science is inaccurate, and furthermore cutting through the occasional bit of bad science reporting.... with a side of dirty jokes.” – SciBabe aka Yvette d’Entremont
