Last Thursday I was very kindly invited to Portsmouth to give my talk on the scientific method to the Portsmouth ‘Skeptics in the Pub’ group. I had a great time, and I think that the subject matter certainly got people talking. I’d like to thank everyone who was very welcoming, my ‘test subjects’ during the evening, and especially to Giles and Trish for looking after me. There are a couple of write-ups of the event here and here, and I understand that it was recorded so perhaps I’ll post that when it’s available. They have a very good set up in Portsmouth, with an interval quiz and free chips, so if you’re on the south coast, I’d recommend going there for their next talk, which is by Chaz Shapiro & Dr Paul Curzon. I’m still keen to give my talk to other skeptic/science groups, so if you’d like me to speak at your event just drop me a line!
