I’ll be in New York City August 9th and 10th for my college debate group’s annual summer alumni debate. While I’m in the neighborhood, I’d love to drop in to a bookstore or a theology on tap or a philosophical group to talk about anything from ways to have productive debates, my conversion, strategies for compassionate and compelling interfaith dialogue, Bayesian statistics for everyday use, weirder (and thus easier) ways to start conversation about marriage as an institution, or, as always, musical theatre.
I’ll be tied up in the evenings arguing with my debate friends, but I’d be free before 6pm. And if you’re looking for examples of my public speaking to pitch a group with, my talk at Chicago Ideas Week on the Ideological Turing Test and my interview with CNN about my conversion are online. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently, I’m at the Fare Forward Summer Symposium, and had a lot of fun giving a talk on the Ideological Turing Test (which starts Monday!). If you invite me to speak to a group in NYC, you can find out what led up to the final line of today’s talk:
“And that’s a much better prize than the bloody scalps of my enemies. Questions?”
