Back in March we did an open mic night at Newcastle Skeptics in the Pub as part of Newcastle Science Fest 2012. It produced some great talks ranging from cyborgs to exploding breasts, all from local speakers, and I suspect we’ll be holding another one in the future. I did a lovely song in honour of the Simon Singh vs. the British Chiropractic Association libel case. You may recognise the tune.
