Speaking

One of my passions is to make my work accessible to the everyday individual. To that end, I value engagement with popular audiences.  If you’re interested in having me speak to your class, organization, conference, TV/radio/internet show, or church — or if you want to organize a debate, contact me at thsiao@grantham.edu.  I’m happy to do both physical events and virtual events.

Currently, I’m open to doing speaking engagements or debates on the following topics:

  • The case for natural law theory
  • The case against homosexual behavior
  • The problem with the “consenting adults” ethic
  • The case against gun control
  • The case against animal rights
  • The moral and legal case against marijuana legalization
  • The existence of God

If there’s a topic that you’d like me to talk about but that doesn’t appear here, feel free to email me.
