What's the talk about?

In 2013, when Michael Marshall first interviewed the Vice President of the Flat Earth society for his show Be Reasonable, people could scarcely believe that anyone could genuinely think the Earth was flat. Five years later, Flat Earth belief has gone mainstream, spawning thousands of hours of YouTube videos, gaining widespread international media coverage, and attracting countless followers. How did we get here?

Michael Marshall is the Project Director of the Good Thinking Society and the Vice President of the Merseyside Skeptics Society. He has organised homeopathy protests, gone undercover to expose psychics and quack medics, and co-founded the popular QED conference. He regularly speaks with proponents of pseudoscience for the Be Reasonable podcast and has written for the Guardian, The Times and New Statesman.

This talk is part of the Chichester Festival and will be a ticketed event.

Ariane Sherine

What's the talk about?

 Ariane created the Atheist Bus Campaign: 

“There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life”

As a result, she received a deluge of hate mail from Christians, which led to a nervous breakdown and a three year break from writing.

In this talk, she will tell the full story of how therapy and medication saved her life, prompting her to write her new book, Talk Yourself Better: A Confused Person’s Guide to Therapy, Counselling and Self-Help.

Ariane Sherine is the comedy writer and journalist who created the Atheist Bus Campaign. She has written extensively for TV, national newspapers and magazines, and is the author of the bestselling celebrity book The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas.

Entry £5 on the door.
