Welcome to Maidstone Skeptics in the Pub, monthlyish talks from experts on science, skepticism, critical thinking and myth busting, held at The Style and Winch on Union Street.

The talks are normally £5 to cover costs, with any extra going to The Good Thinking Society, whose work promoting science and skepticism has helped changed laws in the U.K, and the Against Malaria Foundation, who are one of the top rated chariies at givewell.org who say ''The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is one of our top-rated charities and we feel that it offers donors an outstanding opportunity to accomplish good with their donations.'

For more information about the idea behind Skeptics in the Pub please look at this BBC Report and this Wikipedia entry.

What's the talk about?

What better way to understand ourselves than through the eyes of comedians - those who professionally examine our quirks on stage daily? In this touching and witty book, award-winning presenter and comic Robin Ince uses the life of the stand-up as a way of exploring some of the biggest questions we all face. Where does anxiety come from? How do we overcome imposter syndrome? What is the key to creativity? How can we deal with grief?

Informed by personal insights from Robin as well as interviews with some of the world's top comedians, neuroscientists and psychologists, this is a hilarious and often moving primer to the mind. But it is also a powerful call to embrace the full breadth of our inner experience - no matter how strange we worry it may be!

Robin Ince is co-presenter of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 show, The Infinite Monkey Cage. He has won the Time Out Outstanding Achievement in Comedy, was nominated for a British Comedy Award for Best Live show and has won three Chortle Awards. He has toured his stand up across the world from Oslo to LA to Sydney, both solo and with his radio double act partner, Professor Brian Cox. He is the radio critic for the Big Issue and appears regularly on both television and radio. He has two top-ten iTunes podcast series to his name.
