For Episode Eighty-Six, I’m interviewing Jason Ball – he serves on the Rationalist Australia Committee, is the President of the Freethought University Alliance and is a spokesperson for the Atheist Foundation of Australia and an organiser for the Global Atheist Convention. You can also hear him on the Young Australian Skeptics podcast, The Pseudoscientists!
We talk about the forthcoming Global Atheist Convention, the Global Atheist Fringe and the scholarships available for Secondary and Tertiary students. Deadline for Secondary students is: Thursday, 17th November.
