Happy Friday the 13th!

If you wait long enough, the 13th day of the month will fall on a Friday, and journalists will take the opportunity to express their undying love for stories about superstition.

This year, I had a fun time being interviewed by The Daily Tar Heel student newspaper at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I took the opportunity to talk about superstitions students use prior to taking exams.


Today, I was also quoted in a Canadian news outlet called Global News. The article is called “Friday the 13th: Not as scary as it sounds,” and it came with this cool image of yellow-eyed black cat.

Finally, my friend Nate, the host of The Show About Science and undoubtedly the youngest science podcaster on the planet, posted the following tweet today. Being a guest on Nate’s show was one of the best interview experiences I’ve ever had, so if you have not already done so, I recommend you check out the show at the soundcloud link in the tweet.


That’s all for now. Happy Friday the 13th!
