In Episode 26 – recorded at HeadStuff HQ – Alison meets comedian, scientist and improv performer, Jessamyn Fairfield. Jessamyn tells Alison about the benefits of having your own Navajos, combining science and comedy and growing up in the birthplace of the Manhattan Project. Inevitably, there is also a prolonged discussion on sex robots. Jessamyn runs a variety night called Bright Club, where academics present their work through standup comedy. It runs regularly in Galway and Dublin and occasionally in Cork and other locations. For more, see Bright Club Dublin on Facebook and Twitter or Bright Club Galway on Facebook and Twitter also. Bright Club Galway is currently looking for speakers for its April 12th show. Email email@example.com by Friday March 24th if you’re interested. If you find Jessamyn as interesting as Alison did, you can follow her on Twitter. Alison Spittle does stand-up comedy all the time because there’s no money in it. You can find her upcoming gigs on alisonspittle.com or her Twitter. Thanks to HeadStuff.org for hosting our podcast. They have a Patreon page. Please support them.
