Lindsay writes across three intersecting verticals: Science, media, and travel & parenting.  For science, she focuses on stories that get at the process behind the results, and the bigger picture of how we use science as a tool to understand the universe and our place in it. In her media writing, Lindsay specializes in exploring the podcast landscape, particuarly in the area of podcasts and science communication for kids. As a parent who has lived abroad, she’s interested in the intersection of parenting and culture.
