Pod Delusion Live in Leicester – August 16th

Ay oop me duck, on the 16th August we’re doing a LIVE PODCAST RECORDING at Leicester Skeptics in the Pub. So if you’re in the Leicester area, put down your Walkers crisps, turn off the Kasabian and c’mon down to the Square Bar on Hotel Street at 7:30pm for an evening of interesting things.

Like our previous live shows, we’ll be following the usual format – but with the added bonus of a live audience. We’ll be teasing some of the topics we’ll be talking about nearer the time, but I can guarantee that it will be an eclectic mix and you’ll go away having learned something – not from me, but from our awesome contributors.
