Join us for the St. Louis Skeptics in the Pub. Skeptics in the Pub is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and social networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and other like-minded individuals. It provides an opportunity for skeptics, rationalists, and science enthusiasts to talk, share ideas in a casual, relaxed atmosphere, and discuss whatever topical issues come to mind. But most importantly, it's about having fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality. In addition to the fun people, bocce ball, and great conversation, Skeptics in the Pub sometimes features lively presentations from scientists, philosophers, magicians & mentalists, activists, and others who are passionate about the scientific outlook.
As always, our host will be Michael Blanford, President of the The Skeptical Society of St. Louis and Director of Education of the James Randi Educational Foundation. At 7PM, we will have a presentation by Paul Harris, a local skeptical radio personality. He will be speaking on ?Skepticism In The Media (Or The Lack Thereof)?. Paul has spent over 30 years on the radio, including the last decade in St. Louis on KMOX and KTRS. He now is heard across the country, filling in for hosts on stations like WLS/Chicago, KIRO/Seattle, WMAL/Washington, WHAS/Louisville, WBT/Charlotte. He also co-hosts the weekly "Lumiere Place Final Table" poker radio show with Dennis Phillips on KFNS/St. Louis and does a nightly "Hot Topic" segment on KMOV-TV's News 4 at 6. On Paul?s website, HarrisOnline.com
, you?ll find hundreds of articles and podcasts, including interviews with skeptics like D.J. Grothe
and Chris Mooney
Jack Patrick's has been a great host to St. Louis Skeptics in the Pub since the beginning. To maintain this relationship we ask that outside drinks not be brought into the event and that we support our host through the purchase of food and beverages.
