Westminster Skeptics – Mark Henderson on ‘The Geek Manifesto’

Recorded on February 7th, Times Science Editor Mark Henderson and Westminster Skeptics President Evan Harris talk about Mark’s forthcoming book ‘The Geek Manifesto’, for which he was soliciting ideas.

Sorry the sound is a bit ropey – the recording wasn’t very good, so I’ve had to wrangle it into something audible, even if it is difficult at times.

You can hear a more succinct interview with Mark on the book on Episode 71 of the Pod Delusion.
