What's the talk about?

It's not easy being a rational person in what often seems to be in irrational world. How do you stay true to your skeptical standpoint without sounding like a tiresome know-it-all? This talk will give some helpful life tips using real-life examples and pre-recorded reenactments starring Jon Ronson, Professor Chris French, and Dr Adam Rutherford of BBC's The Cell.

Rebecca Watson leads a team of skeptical female activists at, co-hosts the weekly podcast The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe, produces pin-up calendars of scientists and skeptics, and attempts to rock harder each year.

She currently lives in London where she works as a freelance writer in order to fund her hardcore skepticism habit. There is currently an asteroid orbiting the sun with her name on it.
