    Hel­lo Pod­black, why don’t you con­tribute a few times before host­ing? thank you!

    I was­n’t sure if there was anoth­er way I should con­tact you, but I would be inter­est­ed in host­ing encephalon when­ev­er you have an avail­able date. Thanks!

    Marc Ding­man

    Thank you Marc. Will email you.

    Hi, two ques­tions: (1) is there either an email list I can get includ­ed on or a ded­i­cat­ed RSS feed to keep track of Encephalons as they’re released?

    And (2), could I host an edi­tion? (I’ve par­tic­i­pat­ed a bunch of times before, tho not recent­ly). I’ve host­ed the Skep­tics’ cir­cle: http://ionian-enchantment.blogspot.com/2008/06/89th-skeptics-circle-id-rather-be-in.html

  6. Alvaro on June 22, 2008 at 9:18

    Michael, the answer to both ques­tions is Yes. I will send you an email. Thank you for your inter­est and participation!

  7. Chris on September 30, 2008 at 1:23

    Could I also get a point­er to a feed of encephalon articles?


  8. Jim on August 17, 2009 at 10:42

    would like to receive emails and posts
