The ThinkCast is a collection recordings and interviews from our past ThinkCon. Highlights include Rhys Morgan's talk from ThinkCon 2011 on what he discovered when he went in search of the truth about a miracle cure, and the backlash that resulted. The most impressive part of this, though, is that Rhys achieved all of this while being only 15 years old.

Kate Russell is a journalist and reporter who, by her own admission, spends far too much time online. For the past decade she has dedicated her life to staying on top of online developments, commenting on the Internet, social media and mobile apps for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and a frightening number of print and online publications. In that time she has seen a lot of things done well - but less widely reported are the disasters she's witnessed. From monumental social media screw-ups (like the Facebook party invitation that ended in a full-scale riot), to the truth behind how much information you're giving to 'The Man'. This revealing talk is not for the faint-hearted and might make you think twice about how well you know the Internet.

The Skeptics in the Pub Podcast for Cambridge started in June 2010. The podcast aims to provide listeners with a bitesize insight into the topics discussed at the evenings. Even if you have attended the talk it's still worth a listen as our team of podcasters try to probe deeper on some of the more interesting questions put forward by the audience.
Broadcast live on Sundays afternoons from Cam FM (97.2FM in Cambridge, and streaming online), Dr Andy Holding and Will “Jefferson” Thompson, Esq. discuss the science of fiction with a range of guest experts (and tenuously-related music), often with hilarious results. Expect anything from time travel to advice on how to survive the impending zombie apocalypse!
