  1. The Human Cosmos – Dr Jo Marchant

    For most of human history, we have led not just an earthly existence but a cosmic one. Celestial cycles drove every aspect of our daily lives. Discover why stargazing can be really, really good for us. It is time for us to rediscover the full potential of the universe we inhabit, its wonder, its effect on our health, and its potential for inspiration and revelation.

    This event will be online, on the Skeptics in the Pub Twitch channel.

  2. QED 2018… Again!

    After QED 2018, the organising team decided to take a well-earned rest, before bringing back the event, bigger than ever, in 2020. But 2020 had other plans. So we thought if we can’t have QED 2020, why not just have QED 2018... again?

    With the help of the fine folks at Skeptics in the Pub Online, we will be streaming videos of our favourite talks, panels and podcasts from QED 2018 on Twitch, free for all to come along and enjoy.

  4. How to Make the World Add Up – Ten Rules for Thinking Differently About Numbers – Tim Harford

    In How to Make the World Add Up, Tim Harford takes us deep into the world of disinformation and obfuscation, bad research and misplaced motivation to find those priceless jewels of data and analysis that make communicating with numbers worthwhile. He reveals how we can evaluate the claims that surround us with confidence, curiosity and a healthy level of scepticism.

  5. I ain’t afraid of no ghosts!

    If ghosts aren’t real, why do so many people believe that they’ve seen one? How can we explain the supernatural experiences people have reported? How do places develop a reputation for being haunted? Chris French will be intervieweing Richard Wiseman about the natural explanations behind the supernatural to show how the paranormal is perfectly normal.

    This event will be online, on the Skeptics in the Pub Twitch channel.

  6. The bloody work of naturopaths – Britt Hermes

    For three years, Britt Hermes practiced as a licensed “naturopathic doctor”. Most naturopathic care relies extensively on dubious alternative therapies, rather medical or scientific research. In this Halloween-themed talk, she shares the experiences that led to her interest in natural medicine, some spooky naturopathic practices, and how she became the most hated naturopath in the world.
