Institutionalised

23Sep16

I now have something in common with fifteen Nobel Prize winners. I’ve given a speech at the Royal Institution in London.

It was the venue for a broadcasting conference called, “Next Radio”. The room was filled with people who work in the radio industry.

The Royal Institution was founded in 1799 by the leading British scientists of the age. Throughout its history, the Institution has supported public engagement with science through a program of lectures, many of which continue today. The most famous of these are the annual Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, founded by Michael Faraday.

The irony is that Michael Faraday invented the “Faraday Cage” which is an enclosure used to block electric fields, including RADIO WAVES!

Watch my speech here;

Craic on!
