Would you like a Pint of Science with that?…

1 Comment

And in my other life…

..I speak about grisly things all to do with crime in particular murder and serial violet crime as well as all things to do with Abnormal Psychology and Psychopathology.

If you’ve read my about page, you’ll know this.

You see I started my psychology career working in the area of Forensic Psychology.  It’s one of my areas of interest and I’m very fortunate that as someone who is multi-passionate, I have fashioned my life in a way that allows me to indulge these things


Anyway, in light of this I’ve been asked to be a part of a wonderful festival called the Pint of Science.

The Pint of Science…

…”aims to deliver interesting and relevant talks on the latest science research in an accessible format to the public – all in the pub! We want to provide a platform which allows people to discuss research with the people who carry it out – no prior knowledge of the subject is required. It is run mainly by volunteers and was established by a community of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in 2012. The main festival takes place annually over three days in the month of May simultaneously in pubs across the world. Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation”

In the meantime, if you are local you may want to pop along to one of the Nottingham evenings?

All of them are being held at the Canal House pub from Monday 23rd to Wednesday 25th May.  I’ve a little spot on Monday 23rd and I’ll be talking about ‘The Varying Face of Murder’.

 I look forward to seeing you if you come along, and if you’re not local I’d definitely check out the site and see what’s going on near you.

Til next week!

  1. Hi James!

    Thank you for your lovely comment. Yes, what a shame you’re not here. I’m positive that you would have had some fantastic questions and would obviously bring great enthusiasm.

    I dont believe that the talks are recorded sadly. If that changes I’ll be sure to point you in the right direction. Also, yes I’m familiar with the problems where you are. Have you read the book ‘Catch me a Killer’ by Micki Pistorius?

    It’s a bit old now but it’s written by an African Police Detective who specialises in Serial Killers. I’ve added the link here for you:

    I really recommend it if you haven’t read it. And please let me know what you think.

    Hoping this finds you well,
