In case I’ve been too subtle and you totally missed it, I’m launching a new organization. It’s basically Skepchick, but live on the streets of Chicago. Monday I’ll be announcing our first two events. One is an outing and the other is the kickoff of our new lecture series (ok it’s Skeptics in the Pub but with more vagina power.) I’m really excited about our first speaker as everything kind of fell into place timing-wise with her. Right now, she’s someone everyone is talking about. But more on that Monday.
We also have other projects in the works including a science themed art expo and a science fair for grownups and some advocacy work. I’ve got a lot to get done before I pretend to go on leave at the end of May! And tomorrow I meet with the board to brainstorm some more ideas and get some of my ideas skewered.
So I’m asking you to do some of my work for me. Because I’m lazy… Um… Pregnant. I’m pregnant and need help doing some of this stuff because my belly is in the way… That’s what I meant.
What would be a cool skeptic-themed outing or event that would get you excited? Where do you think skeptical outreach is lacking? Who are speakers you’d like to see in your town? What should I do with my organization?
The Afternoon Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Skepchick community. Look for it to appear Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 3pm ET.
