On my way back from a very enjoyable New Scientist Live show, the first IRL one I’ve attended since the scourge of Covid started.
Below are the names of the talks I attended. Plenty of fascinating material in there to inspire future posts, as well as a problematically large number of related books I now want to read.
- The dark history and troubling present of eugenics, by Adam Rutherford.
- The pattern seekers, by Simon Baron-Cohen.
- Making sense of screen time, by Dr. Karl.
- Believing the unbelievable: the science of paranoia and conspiracy thinking, by Nichola Raihani.
- Black holes, by Jeff Forshaw.
- Ultra-processed food, by Chris and Xan van Tulleken.
- A new force of nature? By Harry Cliff.
- The geological record of climate change, by Christopher Jackson.
- DNA family secrets, by Turi King.
