Any Science Friday Fans here? Wondering what happened to Flora Lichtman

Anybody know where Flora Lichtman is working and why she left Science Friday? We have enjoyed her work for many years and were shocked when she was no longer on the show. Thought it odd they did not say where she was going on their web site.

Wondering is all the right wing changes at NPR might be a reason.

1. Here's her recent byline on the NY Times

from an "Op-Doc" column.

Flora Lichtmanis a video journalist who lives in New York. Her work has appeared on NPR’s Science Friday and in Popular Science and The New York Times, and she is co-author of “Annoying: The Science of What Bugs Us.”

3. LOL, heck if I know

I guess it's like an Op-Ed but it uses a video documentary instead. Or something. I prefer your Looney Toon explanation!
