SitP: Christmas Open Mic 2016
6 days ago
For our December Skeptics in the Pub meeting we decided to try something different: An open mic! It was specifically aimed at people who thought they wanted to have a go at doing a skeptical talk but had never done one before. We had 7 speakers all doing different skeptical topics, and our committee member and host for the evening Heather Pentler had a buzzer (from the QI board game, no less!) to let people know when their time was up. All 7 talks are presented here in their entirety for you, although the audio quality is a bit shit in places, for which we can (as always) apologise and promise to do better next time. You'll hear from: Heather Pentler - Autism Myths John Raven - Education, Hierarchy, and the Destruction of Life on Earth. Tracey Jolliffe - 2 FameLab talks for practise :) Ewan Leeming - What You See Is Not Quite What You Get Stefano Bosisio - Where Do My Medicines Come From? Dan Ridley-Ellis - The Christmas Tree Lecture (an unexplanation) Mark Pentler - Audiophile Bullshit Brian Eggo - Unpredicta-Bull: End of Year Summary
