TPPP Episode 58 : Hard To Say I’m Sorry

The Podunk Polymath Podcast has returned from yet another week hiatus to bring you the truth! I am going to try to get back on a weekly schedule, but I have added a bit to my already busy life and I’m trying to sort it out. I ask that you bear with me The Triple Po through this transition!

On the pre-ramble this week I talk about that loathsome piece of shit Harvey Weinstein and his serial rapes, as well as the #metoo campaign which it sparked. I also talk about how men need to get up off their asses and stand up against these assholes who harass and assault women right in front of our eyes as we sit back and say nothing. Men fucking caused this problem, and we have to fix it.

On the palaver it was my honor to speak to another SJW I admire, Stephanie Zvan. We talk about the need for public figures to be able to take criticism and learn from it. We discuss a couple of examples of people who did not take this advice, namely a certain ‘thinking’ atheist, as well as Stephanie’s own experiences with needing to apologize for things she has written in the past. We also talk briefly about her history of harassed, but also on a more positive note her appearance at Skepticon! Stephanie is someone I have followed and strived to emulate in some small way, and I was flattered when she approached me about interviewing her. It was an enlightening conversation with a remarkable individual.
