Professor Paul Krause, speaking on the subject of "Artificial Intelligence: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly".
Different topics appeal to different people, of course.

The quality of speakers at meetups and events seems to be a major factor in the success of local groups. People should aim high as you never know who will accept an invite. Even poor groups who just have a whip-round at the end of the meeting attract some fascinating speakers. Debates they generate are often good too.

I had an opportunity, thanks to Glasgow Skeptics, to buy Bitcoin at £200 per coin. They later reached US$20,000 each coin! Not all groups are very engaging but the good ones do great work (including campaigning and philanthropy) and deserve support.

It may also help to remind ourselves that we are far from alone in wanting critical thinking to be taught at schools instead of some 'faith and flock' ethos; or to end religiously motivated child genital mutilation and other horrors.
