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.
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.
