The Vic Skeptics have announced that the entire team from the acclaimed international podcast The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe (SGU) are to be the keynote speakers at Skepticon 2019, the Australian Skeptics National Convention.
SGU is one of the most respected podcasts on skepticism, critical thinking, reason and the public understanding of science. The first episode of the SGU podcast went online on May 4, 2005 and is today one of the most popular science podcasts on iTunes.
The SGU members are also authors of the bestselling The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe: How to Know What’s Really Real in a World Increasingly Full of Fake.
As well as listening to the SGU speak, delegates will have the opportunity to mix with the team at conference social events including the Friday night meet & greet and Saturday night’s conference dinner.
Skepticon 2019 is organised by Vic Skeptics and will be held on the weekend of December 6-8 at Melbourne University. It will include a range of speakers from the local and international Skeptic community. Further announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
Early bird tickets for Skepticon 2019 will be available from June 1.
