SkeptiCamp NYC Profile

Biography: President of the New York City Skeptics and Science Editor for entertainment website AIPT, where I solicit and publish content on the science of superheroes and other pop culture, with an emphasis on skepticism and critical thinking
Location: (Not Provided)
Attendance Platform: In Person
Proposed Session Title: Mothman is My Boyfriend: The Rise of Cryptidcore
Session Description:
There's one thing most skeptics and believers can agree on -- crytpids are cool. But now they're also trendy?! Cute caricatures of the Jersey Devil, Nessie, Mothman and more have taken over online craft stores and spurred their own sudden subculture. How did this happen? What does it mean for skeptics and "real" cryptozoologists?

This is a startlingly big topic, but we'll start to scratch the surface here.
