My second favorite media is radio. The Skeptics Guide to the Universe! Radiolab 360, This American Life, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Snap Judgment, etc. Public radio!
screen time- not a big movie fan. i guess i have a short attention span. I don't have a tv but I still find a way to watch battlestar galactica, louie, dr. katz, arrested development, home movies, etc. I also like watching mindless sciencey stuff on youtube with my kids- vsauce, smarter every day, veritasium etc. True Facts by Ze Frank.
music-Alaa Wardi. I cannot overstate my devotion to this man. Ben Gibbard, but only by himself. Thao Nguyen, The 1975, Van Morrison, David Grisman, Jens Lekman, the Band,. . . lots of other stuff. Also, I have kids, so I have developed a healthy appreciation for Taylor Swift and the like.
When I am looking for new music, the first place i go is NPR's tiny desk youtube station. I feel like that must say something about me, but I am not sure exactly what.
food- sriracha hot sauce (practically mandatory), beer, fresh-from-the-dirt carrots, tempeh sandwiches with saurkraut. Chickpeas are my favorite legume. This is important.
I keep trying to pare this section down, not that anyone reads these things anyway.
In lieu of a TV, my living room has a huge messy bookshelf overflowing with games. Yet, my kids still get too much screen time.

-bonus points for being science minded and/or having a wicked beard :)
Extra credit for NOT messaging me to explain that our cells live longer than 5 years, and thus my first statement is incorrect.
