Please join me for Skeptoid live presentation

Post by Hagoth » Sat Oct 09, 2021 6:46 am

I don't know if there are any other Skeptiod listeners out there, but if so, I hope you'll join me at this event. Brian Dunning is making a whistle-stop tour to share his new documentary about the misrepresentation of science/scientists in popular media. This was scheduled for the SL public library but it got bumped due to Covid weirdness, so I took it upon myself to find him a new venue.

I hope some of you Wasatch Front NOMs will join me there and maybe even help me spread the word. This is SUCH an important topic in the current misinformation climate!

Sounds interesting, Hagoth. I should be free that evening, so I am going the links you left on the Support board and I may see you up there on the 23rd.

Excellent! I'll keep an eye out.

Any possibility this will be streamed online? Unfortunately, the commuter costs would are a no-go for me.

It won't be live streamed but the movie will be released after his tour. Maybe he'll make one of the whistle-stop sessions available at some point. I'll try to remember to ask him for you. Where are you located?
