Elizabeth SvobodaI make a living convincing editors to let me write about stuff I think is cool or thought-provoking. The subjects I’ve covered, limited only by my editors’ skepticism, include dinosaur track-based detective work, creationist biology classes in Galapagos schools, and the connections between suffering and selflessness. I grew up in the suburbs of Western New York and live in San Jose, CA with my husband, Eric, and our baby boy, Nate.
