“I love to discover information about the obscure, unknown, forgotten and neglected — and I love to share it. If, in the process, I also disprove some conventional wisdom so much the better. Whether digging for a kernel of truth in the history of popcorn or following the global trail of Leo Cherne (the man who saved the world) I’ve had a chance to learn about the interplay between culture, events, science and people. And, equally exciting, I get to tell the story of what I’ve learned.“
