The world's best speakers. Your questions. £14.99 per month

What is Intelligence Squared+?
Intelligence Squared+ brings you live, interactive events online every week. You can ask your questions to our speakers, vote in live polls and interact with other members of the audience. Your subscription will give you access to multiple events, live and on-demand, featuring the world’s top thinkers and opinion formers. Please see the questions below for general Intelligence Squared+ questions. For more information about our return to in-person events and how this affects subscriptions, please see our general FAQ.
What does a subscription include?
All Intelligence Squared+ subscriptions include:
  • A 15% discount on tickets for our online courses and masterclasses
  • Access to all of our online Intelligence Squared+ events live and on demand. This includes livestreams of in-person events when we return events in venues
  • Exclusive discounts on books featured at our events, via our independent bookseller Primrose Hill Books. You can now see all of those books in one place on our website here. Whether you’re looking for a new book for yourself or a gift for a friend or loved-one in the run-up to the festive season, we have a great and varied selection to choose from
  • A 15% discount on tickets for in-person events. To redeem your discount for tickets to in-person events, you can use the code next to the Buy Tickets button when booking tickets. You will only be able to see this code if you are logged in to a valid Intelligence Squared+ account.
How does it work?
Your subscription will allow you to watch live events online via the Intelligence Squared+ platform on any device you want. What’s more, after the live event has taken place, you’ll be able to access the recording on-demand, whenever you want. If you watch an event live you will be able to help shape it through our Q&A feature and by voting in snap polls. You’ll also be able to interact with other viewers via the audience chat feature.
How can I participate in live events?
An Intelligence Squared+ subscription includes access to online-only events and livestreams of in-person events. Once you have signed up for the service, you can simply go to any Intelligence Squared+ event page on the day of the event and click the "Watch" button to be taken straight into the online event (you will need to be logged in to your Intelligence Squared+ account on our site). We will also send you an email 30 minutes before each event starts with a link to watch.
How do I watch events at a time that suits me?
You can watch past events via the Video page on our site when logged in to your Intelligence Squared+ account. This means if you are not free when the event is first broadcast you can view it later, at a time that works for you.
How much does it cost?
A subscription costs just £14.99 a month (or £149.99 per year). The minimum subscription term is three months and if you’re not yet convinced, don’t take our word for it; Stephen Fry, one of our most brilliant speakers, thinks you should sign up too.
Will I be able to cancel my subscription?
Of course. After the initial subscription term of three months, you are free to cancel at any time. To cancel your subscription, please email info@intelligencesquared.com providing at least 48 hours ahead of your next billing date.
