Comedian Robin Ince quickly abandoned science at school, bored by a fog of dull lessons and intimidated by the barrage of equations. But, twenty years later, he fell in love and he now presents one of the world’s most popular science podcasts. Every year he meets hundreds of the world’s greatest thinkers.
At this event, Robin shares why scientific wonder isn’t just for the professionals. He explores why many wrongly think of the discipline as distant and difficult. From the glorious appeal of the stars above to why scientific curiosity can encourage much needed intellectual humility, Robin’s optimistic and profound outlook on life will certainly make you laugh, and leave you filled with a thirst for intellectual adventure.
