Be there. Be square.

— «Sick Freaks: Disability, Freak Shows, and Reality TV» by Dr. Katya Vrtis
The old carnival freak shows are basically gone now, but that hasn’t changed people’s desire to stare at those who are different. From Mystery Diagnosis to Born This Way, come find out what’s going on with reality television, and how all that’s old is new again.

Katya is a queer, disabled theater historian (for extra freakiness) who writes about identity, performance theory, and political theater. When not reading, writing, or talking about these topics, Katya is usually either murdering aliens in XCOM or crafting, and sometimes even does both at once.

«Cosmic Death Lasers» by Ginny Cunningham
We'll explore objects so extreme that if you could stand on their surfaces gravity would squash you flat as a pancake. Then we'll learn how to manipulate these objects to create a death ray capable of destroying all life on Earth as we know it.

Ginny is a fourth year astronomy graduate student working at the University of Maryland and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. She studies the brightest explosions in the universe and in her free time she likes to pet dogs and drink wine (preferably at the same time).

«Exposing the Fake News of Low Back Pain» by JD Sheppard
Does good posture prevent back pain? Do six pack abs help your back? Where does pain even come from? Can Professor Dumbledore teach us something about pain? (okay that one is obviously yes!) Forget everything you've ever been told about back pain and get ready to nerd out on the science of pain while busting some myths along the way.

JD is a nerd with the goal of making physical therapy and health care more scientific (if you haven't heard health care is complicated). He a board-certified specialist in orthopedic physical therapy, is currently serving on the American Physical Therapy Association of Maryland’s board of directors, and works at Washington Wellness Physical Therapy & Sports Care. In his free time he enjoys hiking and backpacking with his dog Scout.
