This week we find out if we’ll ever be able to get rid of our nuclear weapons, find out why chinese lanterns aren’t (necessarily) the worst thing in the world, and all about how golf still has a long way to go before it joins the 20th century. And much more!

Last weekend as QEDcon 2013 in Manchester, and in addition to picking up an Editor’s Choice Award at the Ockham Awards (thanks!), we also had an hour slot in which we could showcase some interesting people talking about interesting things. Here’s a recording of that.
We find out if the psychics passed the Halloween test, discover how losers can win elections, and hear about a machine that can turn your thoughts into actual 3D objects. For real. Also: Self-driving cars are a problem for the future, atheist street preaching and how pathology was developed.
