From the Master Geek and National Living Treasure

"Dr Karl is Australia's incumbent President of Science" The Age

"There's no topic on which Dr Karl does not have an interestingly expressed opinion" The Weekly Review

In his typically engrossing style, Dr Karl places the food industry under the microscope, gives an insight into your insides, reveals how hamburgers can kill, and puts his palate on the line - all in the name of flavoursome entertainment. Crammed full of glorious words and pictures, Brain Food will make you laugh, make you think AND best of all, make youse smarterer!

AUTHOR EVENTS

18 November 2017

This event is part of Skepticon Australia 2017, a two-day convention that allows the public to question outlandish claims, like the earth is flat or chemtrails are a real thing, with reason and rationality to get closer to the truth. Day One, Session One starts off with a Welcome Address by the Australian Skeptics' President Eran Segev and an Introduction by the host, Lawrence Leung. Following this, Dr Karl will be expounding on some of the great moments in skepticism, including the potential for alien life, the negative effects of big pharma, the phenomenon of gravitational waves, and all the most fascinating political conspiracies with his session Great Moments in Skepticism. Following Dr Karl, former 'doctor' of naturopathy turned industry whistleblower, Britt Hermes, will be investigating the questionable ethics and pseudoscience that drove her out of the profession.
