Alert x 3! BSitP with Simon Perry on June 29th

In addition to having Scott Sigler ’round after his book event at Pandemonium on June 23rd, we’re doubly honored as we’ll have UK skeptic Simon Perry (Leicester Skeptics, Quacklash) on June 29th at Tommy Doyles.

Simon has joined the ranks of those who’ve moved on to putting the active in activism by taking the fight against woo to the government and medical overseers. The campaigns he’s been involved with have helped shutter bogus (my word, not his, UK legal system!) allergy testing outfits, psychics and sham medicine making curative claims for cancer, among other things.

You may have heard of him, as well, from his involvement with the Quacklash campaign which went after a slew of bogus (again, my word, not his *grin*) claims by reporting them en masse to the trading standards boards and the General Chiropractic Council.

Simon will be talking about the nuts and bolts of such fights as well as sharing some stories of the woo-tastic nonsense that he’s run up on while doing it. It should be fun!

FYI, this is a Tuesday night instead of the usual Monday. Also, we will be taking over the downstairs lounge for this one (with a but more support from the venue this time). So seating will be a little more limited, but also more intimate! =D
