Friendly Atheist Podcast Episode 75: Lauren Lane, Executive Director of Skepticon

Our latest podcast guest is Lauren Lane, the Founder and Executive Director of Skepticon, a national conference located annually in Springfield, Missouri that promotes skepticism, science education, and community building.

I spoke with Lauren about how her team runs a free conference for more than a thousand people, how they improve the event every year, and what goes on behind the scenes.

(Disclosure: I’ve spoken at Skepticon multiple times, though I won’t be able to attend this year. It’s a wonderful event and you should all attend if you can!)
