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.
