Lectures Toronto

Lectures in Toronto easy to find with launch of new site

Ever sat pondering over what to do on a Friday night when drinking at the bar just seems like too much work? Podium, a new site created by former students of York and University of Waterloo, hopes to add a dash of education to your evening plans. Aggregating information from over 125 websites, Podium lists lectures/debates/talks happening all over the city. Browse by category (Technology, Entertainment, Design, History, Science, Global Issues, Arts & Culture) or get an overall view of what's happening in the coming months.

As someone who often spends more time contemplating what to do on a given night than actually doing it, this site is a welcome addition to my google reader, letting me embrace my inner science nerd without too much legwork (and hey, it's free).

Sitting through a 2 hour lecture might not be everyone's jam, but for those of you who dig this sort of entertainment, Podium is worth checking out.
