Skepchick Sundaylies: Cool Science Ladies, a Mammoth Comeback, and Sitcoms vs. Women

Welcome to Skepchick Sundaylies, formerly ICYMI! Surly Amy realized that, hey, you guys are busy people. You’re out there building robots and saving the world every weekday. You don’t have time to read all the goodness that is the Skepchick Network on Monday. But, if you’re reading Skepchick, you’re probably also dirty heathen who are sleeping in and watching television on Sunday rather than spending hours in church. What better way to spend those lazy, relaxing hours than catching up on your favorite skeptic bloggers? So we’re taking our cue from our counterparts in traditional print media and saving our “big paper” for Sunday, complete with some of our favorite webcomics and – maybe, sometimes, if you’re good – a Surly or Skeptical Robot coupon. Let the fun begin!
