We are pleased to announce that prominent Australian skeptic Dr Brad McKay will be speaking at Skepticon 2019.

Dr Brad is a science communicator, TV host and podcaster who also works as a GP in Sydney. He’s an experienced broadcaster, interviewer, MC and public commentator. He appears regularly on Australian TV and radio, and presents several medical podcasts for health professionals.

In 2013 Dr Brad hosted the Logie-nominated television program ‘Embarrassing Bodies Down Under’ (Foxtel/Channel 9), a show dedicated to decreasing stigma and increasing awareness of traditionally taboo health topics.

Dr Brad will be looking at the latest trends in home remedies and seeking evidence for their efficacy. He joins other Australian speakers, including Jo Thornely and Brendan O’Brien, as well as international guests Susan Gerbic and the entire Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe podcast team.

Tickets to Skepticon 2019 in Melbourne this December are now available.
