Dean is doing another talk for the Skeptics In The Pub (SITP) network, and this time it involves the actual network that is the internet. It’s SITP online, with a live stream of Dean’s talk, followed by a Q&A with willing participants. There is also a chance that Dean’s notorious cat Pickle will make an appearance and attack him, like he did last time.

Blurb: Why can’t we think straight when hungry? What’s the point of nightmares? And why can’t we forget embarrassing memories?
Emotions can be a pain. After losing his dad to Covid-19, Dean Burnett found himself wondering what life would be like without them. And so, he decided to put his feelings under the microscope – for science.

In this talk, Dean takes us on an incredible journey of discovery, stretching from the origins of life to the end of the universe. Combining expert analysis, brilliant humour and powerful insights into the grieving process, Dean uncovers how, far from holding us back and restraining logic and reason, our emotions make us who we are and allow us to think at all.
