The Rise and Fall of a Bingo Revolution
Thursday 6th Feb 2020
New lecture dates and ticket on sales are announced via the mailing list and that’s also how you get the cheapest tickets before everyone else.
What is rebel lectures?
Learning is important. But so many of us don’t learn as much as we could because the way the world teaches us things is often boring. Traditional education often excludes people who don't like boringness.
Rebel Lectures are for people who like their learning to be a bit more intense; more dramatic; more emotional; more anything.
So, if you like learning, but generally find talks and lectures boring, then Rebel Lectures might work for you.
Life is difficult. Knowledge is power. Arm yourself.
background of the founder
Way back in 2008 I co-founded Rebel Bingo. It was a new, more aggressive style of bingo. It totally fucked the bingo system and changed the game forever. Then I had a nervous breakdown (slash breakthrough).
While slowly crawling out of the depths of psychological hell I got addicted to podcasts. Podcasts quickly led to harder learning materials and I soon found myself binge watching hours of back to back lectures on Youtube. My experience of school and university had made me think I was lazy or useless. But deep into adulthood I discovered a passion for learning that I just hadn't known how to access. I'd awoken a dragon. It felt good. It opened my mind. Opened my life. How could I help others to enjoy the same transformation? And so Rebel Lectures was born.
I want to do for lectures what I helped do for bingo. I want to help others find their true calling. I want more attention. But I also want to be alone. It's complicated.
