0202: Science Writer Emily Anthes

Science writer Emily Anthes talks about her latest book The Great Indoors: The Surprising Science of How Buildings Shape Our Behavior, Health, and Happiness and the 2014 release Frankenstein’s Cat: Cuddling Up to Biotech's Brave New Beasts, both of which are available on Amazon. If you use Amazon Smile, please select Rosie Fund as your charity. After tackling science, research, and journalism, Emily and I  move on to a fascinating discussion of how dogs impact our environment and some medical advances for animals.

You can still commission recent guest Ashley Schanz through her Facebook Page Schanz’s Sketchbook to sketch a beautiful memento of your pet with the proceeds benefiting charities. This makes a great gift, especially if you know someone who has lost a pet. Please use the keyword “Rosie” when you contact Ashley if you want Rosie Fund to be the beneficiary charity.

Ashley is now also online at  schanzssketchbook.com.
