I Would Be Throwing Away X Months If I Switched Domain Names?

Hindsight is in fact 20/20. After 9 months of experience, not that it's a lot of time, I have a list of things I would do differently.

The article David mentions above is your best bet to keep the lag time as short as possible. Just remember that the new domain is going to start out having to survive through the aging delay again.

I know. That's the hardest part about even contemplating this change. At this early in the game, I don't think I would be losing much with my current site given it's low/no rankings.

Do it now. 302 the old domain over to the new. Put all of your efforts into the new domain. Try to get some buzz started out there to support the new site to get it through the next several months. Then when it finally emerges from the aging delay change the 302's to 301's.
Much more sensible to bite the bullet now than to wait.

It doesn't sound like you are changing domains as much as totally changing direction. Why not keep the current site, and build a new one as well?
Not knowing what the topics are, it's hard to say. If they are different but related, maybe it's worth it to devote your efforts to the new one, but keep the existing one as well.
Just a thought!
