Rational romance...

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

In the run up to the recent Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People shows, I had an interesting email from Markus Engbrecht, who lives in Siegen, Germany. Every year since the shows started, he and his girlfriend, Silke Dreiner, have travelled over to catch one. As Markus explained to me in his email, the trip was becoming something of a tradition. But in order to turn it into a real family tradition, he needed to ask Silke an important question. Was there any way, he asked, that we could help make it happen at Nine Lessons?

We were only too happy to oblige, and realising that Simon Singh's set, in which he was taking cosmology questions from the audience, might be the perfect moment, we asked Simon if he would like to get involved. He was delighted to (as rational, in no way pre-ordained coincidence would have it, it was 4 years to the day since he proposed to his wife, Anita), and you can see the outcome in this video from our YouTube channel. Altogether now - awwwww....

That upload completes the set of videos from the recent shows – have a look at our YouTube channel, where you can see backstage interviews with Stewart Lee, Josie Long, Richard Wiseman, Ben Goldacre and many more.
