August’s speaker event is our increasingly annual Soapbox Special.
Instead of one speaker, we’ll give some of our members the chance to talk about whatever is getting to them — previous topics have included ghosts; the flat earth; Eats, Shoots, and Leaves; occultism and quantum mechanics. As long as there’s a skeptical bent and you promise to keep to time (depending on how many talks we end up with, usually about 15 minutes) you’re welcome.
The Soapbox event is a reliably interesting night — which is why we’ve gone back to it year after year. Not bad for a format invented from whole cloth when a speaker dropped out at the last minute several years ago.
If you’d like to be involved then you can email [email protected], comment here, tweet us, or post on Facebook. Make sure you include your name and a short description of the talk. And please do pester if you don’t get a reply; we probably just missed a notification.
