In this episode, I’m talking to Dr Rod Lamberts and Dr Will Grant of Kinda Thinky. It’s a live show from Canberra, which pushes the boundaries of talk shows and isn’t afraid to get the audience thinking about big issues while drinking beer.

You can now watch the first series as pay-per-view on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/kindathinky1 – rent the entire season for $9.95!

During the show, we talk about the origins of the Kinda Thinky live show, the topics, and what’s behind a talk show that makes you both laugh and learn.

KindaThinky: Season 1 – Trailer from KindaThinky on Vimeo.

There’s more than one way to use a PhD, and this is some of them. KindaThinky rummages in the underpants of society’s hairiest issues. Who sets the limits? How do we know what’s wrong? Is denial just a river in Africa?

This is not your standard “smart folks bark facts at the masses” schtick. This is moderate velocity thinkings direct from the people who think them. With expert guests. And beer.

With a dedication that leaves no evidence-based stone unturned, KindaThinky unleashes a factopalanche of feelpinions on attractive and courageous* audiences.

Need something to talk about at work the next day? KindaThinky is your ticket to morning glory.

The next live show is “Control”, on Wednesday, 11th March in Canberra, and the second season continues on through 2015. You can find out more at http://www.kindathinky.com.
