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.

I was at the National Secular Society’s Bradlaugh Lecture a few weeks back to record Gita Sahgal’s lecture on the rise of Hindu Nationalism.

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.

I had a great time on Mythinformed with Brian and Sean. We spoke about the atheist ‘community’, Islamism, Ex-Muslims, free speech, the UK and much, much more.

I’m really looking forward to appearing on two panels at Mythcon V in September. You can find out more details about the conference and buy tickets here.

REVIEW: The World Cup On @BBCSport VR

image

As some of my podcast listeners will know, I have recently become fascinated with the potential of Virtual Reality. I’m completely convinced that VR isn’t simply another entertainment gimmick destined for a dusty cupboard next to your Wii Fit, but will eventually revolutionise the way we consume entertainment, train, do business and interact with one another.
