Listen To Stephen Knight’s Opening Remarks at The #BattleOfIdeas 2018

I was very pleased to be at the Battle Of Ideas this year to speak about religion. The festival itself consists of many, many, (many!) public discussions and debates with an emphasis on inviting the audience to have their say by challenging the guest speakers.

My panel was titled ‘From Bakers to Burqas: Religious Freedom Today’. I aim to make audio of the full panel available soon, but for now you can hear my opening remarks below.

VIDEO: Stephen Knight & David Smalley Discuss #Mythcon V & Politics Backstage

It was great to spend some time with David Smalley last week at Mythcon. We were on two panels together and we also managed to find some time to sit down and talk about lots of good stuff. You can watch that in full below now. Be sure to tune in to David Smalley’s Dogma Debate too.

I had planned to record a number of other interviews, but plans changed when the theatre was evacuated for over an hour due to a bomb threat. I’ll hopefully share some fuller thoughts about the event in the coming weeks.

VIDEO: How has the political climate divided the atheist community? Full Panel

I was in Milwaukee last week for Mythcon V. It was a fantastic event with a diverse roster of speakers and atendees. I had the honour of moderating the first panel of the day: ‘how has the political climate divided the atheist community?’

Featuring: Armoured Skeptic, Jaclyn Glenn, Vadim Newquist (aka, Creationist Cat) and David Smalley.

You can watch that in full below, now.

Please consider contributing to the organisation’s GoFundMe appeal. This is a great conference, and with your help they are hoping to move it out of Milwaukee and potentially bring it to a city near you.

I’ll be aiming to make an audio version of this available via my podcast in the coming days.
