Growing up, my family made regular trips to Borders Books (yes, that still existed in my childhood). The first thing I did upon entering the story was run to the magazine section and check out the latest issue of Scientific American. I loved the accessibility of the articles and clear, engaging graphics. Scientific American instilled my love of science early on; however, never did my 10-year-old-self imagine writing for Scientific American much less having an article be the cover story.
Well, today the article I wrote with Dr. Sarah Lacy hits the stands, AND it is the cover story! A massive thank you to Kate Wong for approaching us to write the story and working with us to produce the final version. We also want to thanks Samantha Mash for the gorgeous artwork both on the cover and the inside spread. Thank you also to the whole production crew for pulling together the figures and layout.
This has been wonderful and overwhelming. Thank you to all the friends and family who have supported us through this process and continue to support us through the social media frenzy.
Important to note, the SciAm article is based on our two American Anthropologist articles you can find here: https://anthrosource.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/…/aman.13915
