This month, we get some interesting interviews from the events the Royal Society held at the three party conferences in September. The events aimed to get people talking about the Royal Society’s Vision for Science and Mathematics Education and we get some interesting views from Professor Dame Julia Higgins FRS, Chair of the Vision working group, as well as Maggie Philbin, who chaired one of the events. To celebrate Black History Month, the Society hosted a twitter chat with Professor Saiful Islam  and Dr Charlotte Armah; you can hear their thoughts on this experience. We also get some interesting insight on the causes of psychosis in a interview with Dr James Kirkbride, one of our Sir Henry Dale Fellow who gave a great talk on the subject at our September Café Scientifique event. And last but not least we hear from the panel members of our Writing Wrongs event, which we held in collaboration with the Royal Society of Literature, and find out more about the roles literature, science and policy play in protecting the planet.
