New: The Pod Delusion Extra feed is a bit like ITV2 for people with a triple digit IQ. Here’s where we post extra bits and pieces that we don’t have room for on the main show – extended interviews and the like, as well as completely new podcasts of special events that we’ve recorded, such as the BHA Darwin Day lecture.

Episode 51 – 17th September 2010 – Live Birthday Special!


[Direct MP3 Link]

To celebrate the show’s first birthday, we recorded this episode LIVE at Skeptics in the Pub, London – so it’s a bit longer than usual, but still follows the same format and is hopefully just as entertainment. There was a brief Q&A session after each speaker – we cut those for time reasons, though you can find them below.

Also below is Sean Ellis’s report on the audience reaction to the live event – you can hear that below.
