TPPP Episode 71 : Yet Another Atheist Episode

The Podunk Polymath Podcast is back yet again for your entertainment. On the pre-ramble this week I talk a bit about NaNoCon and Secular Social Justice conferences. I then rant a bit about food boxes, students loans, and accessibility for the disabled.

On the palaver, I speak with Keith and Jen from the newly revamped Not Another Atheist Podcast. We talk about their relaunch and NaNoCon. But mostly there was a just a bunch of pointless rambling. Although it was mostly just us shooting the shit, it is a bit of a break from the weightier subjects that we here everyday on the news. I hope y’all enjoy this brief respite from our descent to Armageddon.

TPPP Episode 70 : Unhoused

Welcome back to The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week on the pre-ramble I talk about two upcoming conferences I am attending : NaNoCon and Secular Social Justice. NaNoCon is March 17th in Nashville at Glencliff High School. Tickets are $15 until March 1st and $20 thereafter. I will be on the podcasters panel again this year, so that’s even more of an incentive to attend. Secular Social Justice is in Washington, DC at the All Souls Unitarian Church. The cost of that one is $25. I hope to see y’all at one or both conferences!

On the palaver I speak with Ingrid from Chicago, a trans woman who has been unhoused in the past and may soon be again. We talk about how she became unhoused, her experiences, her struggles, and her hopes. She is looking at the possibility of being unhoused again in the near future, but I hope things will change and that this will not happen. It is a difficult but important discussion, mostly because it seems that being unhoused is an issue that too many people try ignore, I think mainly because we are told that being unhoused is shameful but also people are afraid that they may be in that situation one day. I hope y’all gain some insight from this. I know I did.

TPPP Episode 69 : Rolling With Rick

Another installment of the Triple Po is upon us. In the pre-ramble I speak briefly about Trump’s State of the Union speech, and how there’s no way I’m watching the Orange Overlord spew his noxious bullshit. I then talk about how I have become involved with Atheist Alliance Helping the Homeless Nashville, an organization I found out about only last week. I plan on helping by doing to the once monthly giveaways, as well as promoting on the newly created Twitter account, along with the show’s social media. On top of all of this, one of the organizers who I met up with to give a clothing donation to, John Boughner, became a patron at the $5 level! How awesome is that? I also read a new iTunes review from friend of the show and fellow podcaster Cory Johnston.

On the palaver, I speak to newly acquired Facebook friend Rick Manuel. We talked about his previous job asking for and giving grants for the city of Lafayette, LA. We also went off tangents about teachers, charter schools, libraries, and how much Trump sucks, as well as sundry other interesting topics. This was definitely a wide-ranging and entertaining discussion with a really great guy. I hope y’all enjoy it!

TPPP Episode 68 : The Motto Guy

Hey y’all, it’s time for The Triple Po! On the pre-ramble I talk about the government shutdown. There is one senator who gives no fucks and tells Trump just what she thinks of his view of the military.

On the palaver, I speak to Rob Ray. He is co-host, along with his wife, of Secular Yakking, which is sadly being retired. However, there is a silver lining, because it gives him more time to work on his real passion, The Original Motto Project. The goal the organization is to promote E Pluribus Unum, the original national motto, which ‘promotes the truly inclusive nature of American society’. We talk about the project’s origins, mission statement, wins, losses, and what the future holds for the project, which includes a reinvigorated effort to make a real difference in getting the word out. Rob is a passionate guy, and by the end of the conversation you might even be motivated to volunteer!

TPPP Episode 67 : The Doctor Is In

Welcome to everyone’s favorite obscure SJW podcast, The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week in the pre-ramble, I talk about how Southerners shop when there is any snow predicted (spoiler : they are fucking maniacs)! I also talk briefly about Our Orange Overlord’s comments about ‘shithole’ countries, and I then wonder out loud if we have been sucked into an alternate universe through a wormhole.

On the palaver, I speak with Kristi Winters. We talk about her YouTube channel, namely its conception, content, and critics. Her critics are of the alt-right, Sargon loving variety, so you can just imagine the sort of lovely comments she receives. We talk about how she deals with the trolls, and how she copes mentally with the abuse. We also discuss Mythicist Milwaukee and her role in exposing the true intent of the organizers. Finally, we talk about Skepticon and how this is an example of a convention that us SJW types should be focusing on organizing. We had a great discussion, and I think y’all will enjoy it.

TPPP Episode 66 : #metoo

It’s time once again for another installment of The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week in the pre-ramble, I speak about more Trump shenanigans, namely his button measuring contest with North Korea, the release of a new book about the unmitigated disaster that is the Trump administration, and finally an op-ed in the New York Times by the organization that released the Steele dossier. All in all, things are looking pretty bad for Our Orange Overlord, though I daresay Congressional Republicans will prevent any substantive charges from touching Trump.

On the palaver this week, I talk to one of the co-hosts of Brainstorm Podcast, Angela Reddekopp. We have a frank and in-depth discussion about the origins of the #metoo movement, its effects both positive and negative, the backlash, and what we can do as individuals to keep the conversation going, most especially having men talking and doing something to monitor and modify their behavior as well as other men. It’s not always an easy discussion, but it’s one that is vitally important if we are serious about changing this culture of seeing women as property and dangerously toxic masculinity.

TPPP Episode 65 : Soup for the Soulless

Welcome to another thrilling episode of The Triple Po! On the pre-ramble I talk about my Christmas and the exciting things I did, which consisted mostly I’d eating, sitting, and sleeping.

On the palaver this week, I speak to Amy and Ami, hosts of the brand-spanking new podcast Secular Soup. We talk about their show, the situation with a certain podcaster and his issues with serial sexual harassment, their hatred of men, their rabid strain of feminism, and many other feminazi topics. These two have great chemistry, but it is difficult to get a word in edgewise, though that’s probably because I’m a man. I hope y’all enjoy it!
