This story is one I am incredibly proud of. I delved into how an ignorance of the “usual suspects” in Making a Murderer says quite a bit about the media and police culture in the United States.

Plastics aren’t the only thing that fish are eating; now they are consuming fibers (from our clothes washing machines) too. I wrote about a new study on the subject on what’s in fish stomachs—and what that may mean for human beings’ health—in my latest article for Mental Floss.

In short, “the mismanagement of our waste is coming back to haunt us in our food,” Chelsea Rochman, lead researcher for the study and a postdoctoral fellow in conservation biology at the University of California, Davis, told mental_floss.

JORD Features Me on Their ‘Making Time’ Column
