What drew you to this kind of meet up?

Looking to meet other people who love ideas as much as I do, and to be challenged in my thinking by people who have different views.

What kinds of ideas do you like to explore?

Academic background in history and philosophy but also love to learn about psychology, science, politics, different cultures, law, the arts ...oh just about everything!! Who am I kidding -everything!

What are some of your favourite mind feeding sources (i.e. books, lectures, movies, editorials, podcasts...)?

I listen to a lot of podcasts but I also enjoy reading and taking in various forms of popular and formal culture.

How would you describe your current political, religious, philosophical, ect. slant?

I suppose I'm a liberal going towards progressive and I'm agnostic. I tend to call myself a conservative hedonist -I love life and am very aware this is the only one I got. Or is it????

Introduction

I'm a rehabilitating academic who finds my mind absolutely starving for great conversation and debate.

What Tess is saying about this Meetup Group

I know this is a group I set up, but I have to say that it has turned out so well!! I love all the people who have come out and so looking forward to meeting even more minds. Thank you everyone for making it so great.
