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!
