Geek Manifesto events start this week

With the Eureka extracts out, and the book hitting the shops on Thursday May 10, the book tour is getting underway.

First up, I’ve been interviewed for this week’s edition of the terrific Pod Delusion podcast.

Then tomorrow, Sunday May 6, I’ll be appearing on What’s Next, BBC Radio Ulster’s science magazine show. It’s at 13.30.

Two events on Wednesday, May 9. I’m talking about the book at lunchtime at the RSA in London — a 1300 start, free tickets here, though it’s currently waiting list only. It’ll also be streamed live online.

Then on Wednesday evening, I’ll be discussing the book on Night Waves on BBC Radio 3, at 22.00. Lord May of Oxford, a former government chief scientist and President of the Royal Society, will also be a guest.

A long interview with Martin Robbins will also be out on the Strange Quarks podcast next week.

There are many more events coming up — a full listing is here.
