PubhD started in Nottingham in January 2014 and now there are over 20 PubhD locations around Europe. The events are fun and interesting for both the speakers and the audience.
At each event, three local researchers, from any discipline from Art-History to Quantum Mechanics, explain their work ( In simple terms that everyone can understand ) to a pub audience.
These things don't fund themselves so we did a tee for them to help raise money to fund the podcast and the general day to day admin. of running such a fine thing.
