Pinned toot

Hi, I'm Thomas. I write and host The Episodic Table Of Elements, a podcast that looks at the fascinating stories behind every element on the periodic table, at episodictable.com

I also love tabletop games, especially D&D and MtG. I'm looking forward to learning what Mastodon is all about!

This is such a good read for your lunch break, even (especially!) if you have a passing familiarity with gender and race issues in Sport: thenib.com/gender-divisions-in

I took last week off so I could clean my home and get a lot of writing done. Instead I made myself sick and feel like I wasted a lot of time. All I can do now is be kind to myself and move on but gosh dang that's awfully difficult.
