Rationally Speaking Live!
When: Sunday September 28, 2014 @ 2PM
Where: Nagelberg Theatre, Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue (enter on 25th St. between Lexington & 3rd Ave.)
Join us for a live taping of the Rationally Speaking podcast with co-hosts Massimo Pigliucci , Julia Galef, and very special guest Steve Novella! They will discuss the scope of scientific skepticism, including: What topics and areas of inquiry - if any - are "off limits" to skepticism and skeptical activism? Where should skeptics focus their limited resources in a world of pseudoscience and uncritical thinking? They will also reflect on the current state of skepticism and the skeptical movement.
Admission is free and open to the public. An audience Q&A and social will follow the taping.
Dr. Novella is an academic neurologist at Yale University School of Medicine. He hosts the popular "Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe" podcast, is the president and co-founder of the New England Skeptical Society. He also contributes to numerous scientific and skeptical publications and blogs focusing on general science, scientific skepticism, philosophy of science, critical thinking, and the intersection of science with the media and society, including NeuroLogicaBlog, The Rogues Gallery, SkepticBlog, Science-Based Medicine, and the Skeptical Inquirer.
