For nearly two years Holly and co-host Jenny Nelson mixed up a lively cocktail of science, culture, and art each week on Ithaca’s 91.7 FM WICB and via podcasts. Stay tuned for an audio archive of Science Cabaret on Air episodes hosted by Holly from December 2009 to November 2011.
In a user-friendly guide co-authored with Robert Gropp, Holly shares tips and tools with fellow scientists on how to more effectively do public outreach using the media: Communicating Science: A primer for working with the media.
