If you’re like me and the rest of the Internet, you’re a fan of (Dancing) Matt Harding, the guy who traveled the world, danced with the locals, put it all on YouTube, and made everybody smile. His most recent video came out last summer:

Matt’s a Humanist and he spoke on Friday at the American Humanist Association conference (which is still livestreaming today). Carl Wong did a nice job of turning the livestream into a YouTube video and you can watch Matt’s speech here:

If you haven’t heard Matt’s story before, it’s a fascinating one of how he took a cute idea and turned it into a worldwide phenomenon. The story of his trip to North Korea (beginning around 23:30) may be my favorite part.
