• My last talk is now a podcast: “Free Will?”

    My last public talk which I gave, on free will, has now been made into a podcast which can be heard here. The talk, given to Portsmouth Skeptics in a Pub on 14th June 2012, was a nice informal gathering of about 50-odd people of varying skeptical persuasions. I have not listened to it yet, but the Q and A was an interesting and challenging time with some good questions which I think I dealt with pretty well.

    See what you think and post any comments below. Thanks to Paul Jenkins of PSITP for putting this together as Skepticule (episode 14). It was good to see Paul at Laurence Krauss the other night!

    The talk is set out as a refutation of Libertarian Free Will from a philosophical and scientific point of view.

      Great, I can’t wait to listen to this. Because I can listen to them at work, podcasts have allowed me to be introduced to so much more information and ideas than the same me could have been introduced to only ten years ago when they weren’t so common. I feel like the invention of the podcast has changed my life for the better.

      I’m looking forward to work tonight.

      • Thanks Bret!

        I hope there is something new there. It might be all stuff you already know from things I have been saying, but sometimes it’s good to consolidate! The Q and A was pretty wide-ranging – I was particularly happy with that!

      • Let me know what you think! It has had some good reviews on facebook (A Naturalism group).
