Since the launch of the Good Thinking Society in September 2012, we have offered some modest grants, established some small projects, and prepared to launch some bigger projects.
In order to help us devise and deliver these projects, we’re delighted to welcome two new members to the Good Thinking Society team – Michael Marshall and Laura Thomason. Look out for news of new projects in the months ahead.
Michael Marshall – Project Director
Co-founder of the Merseyside Skeptics Society and co-organiser of the QED skeptical conference, ‘Marsh’ was the project leader and figurehead of the 10:23 Campaign, aimed at raising public awareness of homeopathy – resulting in international coverage and worldwide skeptical involvement.
With a background in marketing and communications, his skeptical activism has included testing psychic claims, trialling sports performance wristbands, interviewing proponents of alternative beliefs and exposing the influences of PR in journalism.
Laura Thomason – Project Leader
Laura has worked with campaigners, journalists and regulators to expose and to tackle bad science and misleading health claims. Under her pen name Josephine Jones she has blogged extensively about fields such as Live Blood Analysis, cancer cures, allergy testing and much more.
Laura has a background in biology and has worked as an industrial chemist.
