Lauren Vogelbaum

Lauren Vogelbaum is a writer and performer around Atlanta and the internet. After her stints on the TechStuff and Fw:Thinking podcasts, she co-created Savor to pursue her interests in biochemistry and microbiology without feeling too much like a supervillain in training. You can also find her hosting BrainStuff, researching bugs, and inhabiting local comics shops and grocers. She’s certainly not training a well-read insect army, and she’s pretty much always hungry.
