NOW OUT! CSICOP With The World Skeptics Congress In Berlin And Young Atheist’s Handbook On Token Skeptic

Two things I’ve made for you this sunny Thursday – please do check them out and support them both!

Kylie Sturgess interviews Amardeo Sarma on World Skeptics Congress – Curiouser and Curiouser.

World Skeptics Congress in Berlin, May 18–20th 2012: Promoting Science in an Age of Uncertainty –  www.csicop.org

An interview with Amardeo Sarma, founder and chairman of the German Society for the Scientific Investigation of Para-Sciences (GWUP), chairman of the European Council of Skeptical Organisations (ECSO), and fellow and Executive Council member of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.

In addition, Episode One Hundred and Seven of the Token Skeptic podcast is on the internet airwaves: On The Young Atheist’s Handbook – Interview With Alom Shaha.

Alom Shaha grew up in a strict Bangladeshi Muslim community in South-East London in the 1970s and 80s. He was expected to go to mosque regularly and recite passages in Arabic from the Quran, without being told what they meant.

Alom spent his teenage years juggling two utterly different worlds: a chaotic, sometimes funny, sometimes tragic family life on a council estate, and that of a student at a privileged private school set amongst the idyllic green playing fields of Dulwich. In a charming blend of memoir, philosophy, and science, Alom explores the questions about faith and the afterlife that we all ponder, in The Young Atheist’s Handbook.
