Default Yo SY...were you on NPR recently?

Someone named Stuart Yaniger was interviewed about plastic formulations/composition on NPR. I heard it this morning on the radio.

How many of us could there be?

The guy who did the piece was very easy to talk to, very smart, and knows how to use a shotgun mike and digital editing software.

What was it...a discussion about whether you could determine the quality of different plastics by feel or whether you needed to chemically analyze them to know which had superior properties?

It was a cool piece for sure. Are you guys actively working on this estrogen-free (lol) plastic?

Here's a link to the piece:

Plastic's New Frontier: No Scary Chemicals : NPR

The research was interesting enough to get me to move to Texas.

I flinch every time I hear my own voice. 35 years away from Baltimore and I still can't shake the accent.

Today I worked with a guy about your age who grew up in D.C. He sounds a lot like you.

Congrats on the air time. I didn't hear it this morning - good thing as I might have run off the road!

Accent? What one would be better?

The important thing about a voice is that it has the right kind of "buzz" that makes folk listen. Yours does.
