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.

£6 on the door, if there is any space left.
