Never rains but it pours, and given that it is now April it is fitting that we have not one but two Dublin Skeptics events! Both will take place in the Exchange, 2 Exchange Street Upper.
Neil Denny is the producer and presenter of the Little Atoms Radio Show and podcast. Neil was the recipient of a Travelling Fellowship from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, and in May 2012 he embarked upon a month long, 6614 mile road trip across America. The aim of the trip was to produce a series of podcasts which present a wide-ranging overview of science and skepticism from an American perspective. Driving from San Francisco to Boston and calling in at Phoenix, Santa Fe, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York along the way, Neil recorded 39 interviews with scientists and science writers including Ann Druyan, Leonard Susskind, Kip Thorne, Priya Natarajan, Paul Davies, George Church, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Mary Roach, Edward Stone and Sara Seager. He recorded interviews at some major sites of scientific interest, including NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, The Los Alamos National Laboratory, and The American Museum of Natural History. He also spent a less scientific day visiting Kentucky’s Creation Museum. The podcasts from Neil’s trip can be found at the following website: http://

Following that on Wednesday 10th April at 9pm we will be hosting a talk by Richard Saunders entitled Adventures of an Australian Paranormal Investigator (Facebook and Google+ pages).
Ghosts, Spoon Bending, Mind Tricks, Talking with the Dead, Water Dowsing, Magical Power Bands and the Anti-Vaccination movement all come under the microscope in this talk by the experienced skeptical investigator and TV star, Richard Saunders from Australia.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
