Liar Liar Pants on Fire

Expect a big crowd, because although QED is nominally a two-day event, the Friday before is traditionally full of events, so many skeptics arrive on the Thursday. Our pre-QED speaker event is traditionally busy one.

This talk uses the latest research from the behavioural and psychological sciences to explore the question: is it possible to spot lies? Mike Drayton uses video clips, examples from literature and audience participation to inform inspire and entertain.
