Dr Ben Goldacre, author of Bad Science, is coming to NZ on 24 September to speak for the first time, and The New Zealand Herald wants to get you there. Enter below for your chance to win a double pass to this one-off intimate event.
British science communicator, academic, researcher, rationalism advocate, physician and journalist Dr. Ben Goldacre is coming to New Zealand for the first time this September to inform the public - in his unique comical nature - of the dangers implicit in the modern trend of spreading scientific misinformation, and how to calibrate our bullsh*t meters.
This one-off evening will give audiences a chance to not only hear Dr. Ben Goldacre bring down pseudoscience, but also interact with the audience with a Q&A session.
With a plethora of media appearances, a wealth of academic publications, a near-decade stint of weekly 'Bad Science' columns for The Guardian, and his two books Bad Science (2008) and Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients (2012), Dr. Ben Goldacre interjects on behalf of reason and pulls no punches when it comes to maintaining scientific and humanistic integrity, shining a light through the many holes of scientific (in)accuracy and intellectual duplicity of these parties too willing to deceive the masses.
