Please say hello if you happen by, and as always, you may track me by my pithy comments and observations.

I’m on 88.1 WYPR in Baltimore today at 1pm EST…

Midday with Dan Rodricks on 88.1 WYPR Baltimore

…as a guest on Midday with Dan Rodricks, talking about Human Papilloma Virus infections and the use of vaccines to prevent them. Additionally, I’m excited and honored to announce that I’ll be a regular health and medical guest for the show on a monthly basis. Dan’s an outstanding host, and I’m greatly looking forward to our conversations. We’ll also be taking listener calls, which always makes things interesting.

The story about how this came about, which may or may not be true, can be found at The Secret Lair. You can listen to the audio stream online at the appointed time here, or download the show after the fact here. Additionally, you can follow Dan on Twitter @DanRodricks, WYPR @WYPR881FM, and the Midday show @MiddayWYPR.
