Alex Farrow & Kevin Precious

What's the talk about?

We have two comedians this time:

Alex Farrow is a philosophy teacher and stand-up comedian who will be exploring what he learnt from teaching philosophy in a 6th form college to Muslim and Christian teenagers in East London.

What place do philosophy and skepticism have in the school classroom?
What is the "British values agenda" and are British values under attack?
What is the role of the teacher in creating, challenging and shaping the ethical and social opinions of young people?

Alex has been invited to perform stand-up comedy about philosophy everywhere from Mervyn Stutter's pick of the Edinburgh Fringe, the National Museum of Scotland, music festivals, comedy clubs around the UK and the Oxford University Teaching Awards. He was also Farmington Fellow at Harris Manchester College, Oxford in 2015 researching Philosophy in Schools.

On the same educational theme we have Kevin Precious:

This is the second visit by Kevin Precious reminiscing about his time in teaching and this time he has a more polished article ready to take to the Edingburgh Fringe Festival this year:

He has performed at the Brighton Fringe Festival and at various Skeptics organisations around the country.  It will be a pleasure to have him back.
