Speakers

Get the f*** out of the bike lane! with Noam Osband

Noam is our friendly neighborhood anthropologist-director-producer-singer-of-nerdy-songs. Through his tunes you'll learn about the luna moth life cycle and various other topics, including but not limited to urban cycling etiquette and his PhD research on migrant labor. 


Wake the f*** up! Making the case for community and psychedelic medicine with Dr. Mellody Hayes

Dr. Hayes is on a mission to get you and everyone around you to wake up and reject narratives that people impose on you. She wants you all to love yourselves, connect with others, and is bringing the transformative power of psychedelic-assisted therapies to those experiencing post- traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, and the complex emotions of end-of-life care. She'll be sharing her solutions on how to overcome alienating dominant narratives, aka the Disneyland version of ourselves aka our tendency to distract ourselves from negative emotions. She'll also be discussing her work in changing the western medicine narrative of psychedelics and highlighting their ability to remap pathways of pain and suffering in patients with PTSD and other mental illnesses. 



Nerd Nite SF is a monthly lecture-in-a-bar series where we invite interesting people - scientists, historians, game designers, mimes, etc. - to give short talks on their expertise to tipsy nerds. We strive to be playful, entertaining, sometimes a little inebriated or salacious, but always deeply educational. Join us!
