Krypton Radio

I was a part-time writer for Krypton Radio (Krypton Radio autoplays the radio stream upon loading, so this link and all the links below may result in sound unexpectedly coming out of your speakers/headphones). While the site has a general focus on science fiction and other pop culture, there is also timely news coverage on popular science and technology, some of which I have contributed and can be read via the links below.
