We haven’t been updating lately due to my (Kelly) looming dissertation deadline, and Zach’s work wrapping up Augie and the Green Knight. We’ll get back to updates when we can, but we wanted to let you know that you can catch us at the Bay Area Science Festival in San Francisco from October 23rd – November 1, 2015. We’ll be recording a live Weekly Weinersmith show at the California Academy of Science, so there should be a new update sometime in early November.
Here are the events where you can find one or both of us:
On Friday, October 24th Kelly will be recording a live podcast with Ryan Haupt and Ben Tippett of Science…sort of! In addition to being a geektastic good time, it will be the first time I’ve met Ben in person! The event is being held at a motorcycle shop run by folks with PhDs in BioChemistry. It’s going to be epic, and it’s going to be free.
Join us at 630 PM at the Piston & Chain (1285 Folsom St at 9th St.)!
Kelly and Zach will be at the west coast’s Festival of Bad Ad Hoc Hypotheses (BAHFest). BAHFest is a “celebration of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect evolutionary theory.” Six contestants compete for the best theory, and there will be a keynote address by Matt Inman (The Oatmeal). Judges for the show are Dr. Phil Plait (The Bad Astronomer), Dr. Elizabeth Iorns, and Dr. Andy Sih.
BAHFest West is at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco on October 25th. The show is selling out fast and only balcony seating remains!
Here is last year’s winning presentation:
The California Academy of Sciences opens its doors to adults only on Thursday nights for an event called NightLife. The October 30th NightLife is Halloween themed, and the Weinersmiths will be there to geek out and record an episode of the Weekly Weinersmith. Kelly will also be giving a short talk about parasites as part of a series of spooky science talks. See you there!
