WNYC, the public radio station, hosted a podcast on the 2015-2016 season of the Columbia University football team. I was brought on as a special guest to discuss the football career (and legacy) of Jack Kerouac, who played for the Lions in the 1940s. The article discussed herein, "Football and the Fall of Jack Kerouac," about the possibility that head trauma on the gridiron contributed to the author's middle-age decline into alcoholism and depression, was published online by The New Yorker in 2013.
Neil Nagraj, the digital managing editor of the Post, wrote one of the most lively and astute pieces on speedcubing in recent memory, and featured my book.
Clara Moskowitz, the astrophysics editor at Scientific American, wrote a featured review on CRACKING THE CUBE in the November 2016 issue, listing it as one of the "recommended" titles.
The New Yorker highlighted my reading at Book Culture, in Manhattan, as one of the "Above and Beyond" events in the Goings on About Town section of the magazine.
The Chilean newspaper of record interviewed me for a feature on speedcubing.
Kevin Ryan, a staff writer at Inc., wrote a feature about the business side of Rubik's Cube, featuring my book.
The New York Post arranged for me to do a Reddit AMA.
In 2013, I wrote an article for The New Yorker about Jack Kerouac's football career. The Lowell Sun, Kerouac's hometown paper, followed up with several of the experts interviewed in the piece.
The concluding sentence of my piece on Kerouac was selected by the magazine's News Desk blog as one of the best five sentences published by The New Yorker online that week.
In 2008, my teammates and I won the National Science Bowl, a Jeopardy-style competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Christian Science Monitor dispatched a correspondent to our high school to profile us.
