FESTIVAL LAB: ABC Live Science Podcast – Ockham’s Razor



700 years ago, the English monk and philosopher William of Ockham set down one of the key planks of the scientific method. Today, the ABC podcast Ockham’s Razor is a soapbox for all things scientific: stories, insights, arguments or tributes – anything that can grip an audience by the ears for 10 straight minutes. Join renowned science broadcaster Robyn Williams, ABC science editor Jonathan Webb and a hand-picked roster of speakers for a night of short talks that will intrigue, excite and inspire.

This is an 18+ event. This venue is licensed. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. The Queensland Museum Network supports the responsible consumption of alcohol at all events.
