Eight people. One microphone. A live audience. Join us for Ockham’s Razor, the ABC podcast for compelling stories of science!

Ockham’s Razor is the ABC’s soapbox for all things scientific: stories, insights, arguments or tributes – anything that can grip an audience by the ears for 10 straight minutes.
For this afternoon of talks, you’ll hear from a hand-picked roster of superb speakers, hosted by ABC’s own Tegan Taylor (Coronacast, the Health Report, Quick Smart).

Expect a jam-packed arvo of short talks that will intrigue, excite and inspire – featuring Tassie scientists! Your ticket includes a non-alcoholic or alcoholic organic cider.

A Seat at the Table

Beaker Street Festival’s pay-it-forward initiative, A Seat at the Table, helps make our science and art offerings accessible to those who can’t afford to purchase a ticket. When you buy a ticket you have the option to donate towards the cost of a stranger’s ticket. You won’t know who you’ve helped, but your donation will go directly to allowing someone else to access this great event.

If you’d like to request one or two free tickets, please let us know. If we can offer you a seat, we’ll notify you by email.
