We have a new Skepchick blogger!

Everyone welcome Maria, aka Masala-Skeptic! Maria is an uber-smart skepchick I first met at The Amaz!ng Meeting 5 this past January, and who I got another chance to hang with in Alaska during the Amaz!ng Adventure last week. Maria has a blog at where she posts her thoughts on increasing diversity in skepticism. I thought she’d be perfect for Skepchick thanks to her unbridled enthusiasm for encouraging more community involvement as well as her unique perspective as a woman of Indian descent.

Welcome to the party, Maria!

  1. Hello all!

    Thanks for the welcome wishes, all. I'm having technical difficulties at the moment and am not able to blog but you'll be hearing from me soon, promise! :)


    p.s. Actually, BA, I do play poker – what a coincidence :) There are those who call me "Evil Masala Skeptic" :)
