I'm joined by Tom and Cecil of the Cognitive Dissonance Podcast (http://dissonancepod.com/) to discuss skepticism, communication and whatever comes up. They're irreverent, they're a bit sweary and they're a lot of fun.

If you think all science communicators have a Mancunian accent and grin madly at the stars think again. Patrick chats with the wonderful Lucy Harper, Communications Officer for SfAM,to see what it’s all about and why it’s so important. The discussion is sandwiched between some post-talk (post beers) interviews from the fantastic first ever Coventry SitP.

We start with the remarkable Kate Cooper who kicked off the New Optimists by asking scientists "What are you optimistic about?" and has gone on to so much more. We then chat with the brilliant Narendra Nayak, President of the Federation of Indian Rationalists when he came to visit Birmingham.

This week’s podcast starts with a quick chat with Andrew West of the British Humanist Association about their upcoming event Questival. A chance for fresh air, fun and discussion and debate in a beautiful setting. The main interview is with the excellent Steve Goldfarb, one of the physicists working on the Atlas Project in the Large Hadron Collider at Cern. We chat about lots stuff that’s happening over there, the search for the Higgs, dark matter, softball and blues music.

We kick off with Ash Pryce of the Edinburgh Skeptics. Sorry about my slight warble but Ash is as lucid as ever. Find out about their phenomenal plans at www.skepticsonthefringe.co.uk. In the main interview Patrick talks to the authors of the fantastic book Sleights of Mind on the neuroscience of magic. Rounding off is a great chat with Robin Ince at the Laughing Sole Comedy Club in Birmingham, where Robin makes us Brum Skeptics a promise. It’s recorded so I think that's legally binding.
