This Thursday evening, 11/3, I’m joining a mind-bogglingly awesome group of speakers as part of the California Academy of Sciences nightlife series. This is an Ignite event, which means I’m going to have to explain the End Permian mass extinction and its relevance to us today in FIVE MINUTES. That’s right — this isn’t just an educational event. It’s an endurance test. Come on out! It’s going to be incredibly fun.
