Boston Skeptics in the Pub: May 26!

We’ve had two events thus far, filling up a pub with scientists, skeptics, and confused drunkards. We plan to make this month’s talk the biggest yet! Here’s the dilly:

WHO

This month’s guest speaker is Patty Pieniadz, an ex-Scientologist who left after over 27 years. She was once the Executive Director of Narconon Connecticut and Director of Rehabilitation for the Church of Scientology.

Boston Skeptics in the Pub Audio/Video

Audio from the first Boston Skeptics in the Pub is now available! I’ve uploaded it to Google Video along with video of Mike the Mad Biologist’s slides. The quality (of the A/V, not of the presentation) is a bit poor, for which I apologize. But, it should be good enough for you to follow, for those of you who are fans of Mike’s but couldn’t be there (in the future please consider moving to Boston).

Here’s the link!

Success!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the very first Boston Skeptics in the Pub! I estimate we netted 50 or 60 people, filling up the Asgard’s back room and overflowing into their slightly-more-frontward back room. Mike the Mad Biologist got high praise for a fascinating talk full of science-y goodness.

Audio of Mike’s talk will be online by this weekend, helpfully accompanied by his slides (including the LOLbacteria, of course). Photos are up on Flickr as I type, and posted below for your enjoyment. If you have any, please add them to the Skeptics, Skepchicks, and Events Group!

I’ll be working on getting a speaker for next month, which will probably be same bat-time, same bat-place. Suggestions? Send ’em to me (Rebecca): skepchick (at) skepchick (dot) org. Continue reading
