Event:
An insight into a weird and worrying phenomenon


Due to the pandemic, this year the Merseyside Skeptic Society's popular Skeptics in the Pub series of talks have been conducted online rather than in an actual pub (though you can still have a beer while watching from the safety of your own home if you like).

Their latest guest will be scientist, activist and author of the best selling Belle de Jour series of books, Brook Magnanti. She will speaking about the conspiracies around Qanon that have proliferated on social media in the past few months and the damage these conspiracies are doing to the global anti-sex trafficking movement.

Skeptics in the pub online is run by a coalition of UK based skeptic groups who are working together to continue to bring science and critical thinking to the public during these strange times. Join them via Twitch for the event.
