TPPP Episode 20 : An Inciting Incident 

Happy Holidays from The Podunk Polymath Podcast! For those who celebrate Christmas, I hope it was full of joy and laughs. For those who are still celebrating, continue to enjoy! And for those who struggle with this time of year for whatever reason, you have my sympathies, and I hope you get through relatively unscathed. 

For the palaver, I have the honor and privilege of speaking to author of ‘The PC Lie : How American Voters Decided I Don’t Matter’; podcast host at ‘Inciting Incident’; and activist Ris McCool. We talk about her book, her podcast, and her experiences as a transgender woman. She is very charismatic and full of a righteous rage that is and will be stoked for the next four years by a Trump administration. She is someone to watch, as I think her ambition and courage will prove to be an asset during the travails that are sure to experience for the next four years. 

I also wanted to mention I was on the Christmas edition of Bi Any Means Podcast along with Ris, The Prophet Jeremiah, and Uber Forty Seven. I also contributed to the airing of grievances on The Biskeptical Podcast, and I contributed a Robert Ingersoll quote to an episode of Secular Yakking. So, grab a cold glass of eggnog and enjoy the latest PoPoPo!

TPPP Episode 18 : Social Justice with Sincere

Greetings, and welcome to another episode your mother told you not to listen to, The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week on the pre-ramble, I talk about the news that a CIA report has confirmed that Russia was complicit in hacking the Clinton emails and releasing them to Wikileaks, and how Obama has ordered a full-scale investigation into the matter. I express my fear of the outcome, and what can be done if the election is shown to be compromised. I also talk about a great book I read “The PC Lie : How American Voters Decided I Didn’t Matter” by Marissa McCool. It is a stinging indictment of those who voted for Trump and how she fears for her very existence as a transgender woman, as well as other topics, such as what we can do to stand up for those who are most vulnerable to the policies that will be enacted by the Trump administration. Finally, I introduce a song composed and performed by two-time guest and friend of the show Matthew O’Neil named “Atheistmas”, and I play it during the break! I think y’all will really enjoy it!

On the palaver I speak with Social Justice Coordinator for American Humanist Association, blogger, activist, and one of my favorite writers Sincere Kirabo. We talk about social justice, humanism, his involvement at the DAPL protest camp, as well as how we met at a conference in East Tennessee and how I took him to his first Sonic! Sincere is an extremely passionate advocate for social justice and humanism, and I was honored to have him on the show. Thank y’all for listening, and I hope you enjoy the show!

TPPP Episode 17 : Invisible No More

Welcome to another episode of The Podunk Polymath Podcast! In the pre-ramble I talk about the shooting death of Joe McKnight and how the murderer was treated with kid gloves by the authorities. Also, I speak about the wildfires in East Tennessee and the destruction in Gatlinburg, as well as the deaths and property loss of so many people. I talk about how you can help, and what organizations are contributing to the effort.

On the palaver I speak to blogger, activist, and author of ‘Young, Sick, and Invisible’ Ania Bula. We talk about her book, her struggles, her triumphs, ableism, and what abled people can do to help disabled people gain the recognition and dignity they deserve. I was extremely honored to speak with Ania, and I highly recommend her book.

I also wanted to mention that I had the second best week for downloads, behind only the inaugural week, thanks largely to the episode with Tucker Drake, host of The Atheist in the Trailer Park Podcast. His episode has proven to be very popular! Also, my promo appeared on his show as well as Secular Yakking (whose promo is on this episode). Thanks to everyone who listens, and I hope you enjoy the show!

TPPP Episode 7 : Pastor Jay Gets Overstimulated

Welcome to another edition of TPPP! This week, I welcome a new patron, Daylin. I also talk about my appearance on The Atheist Nomads’ Light The Night Streamthon, which was a lot of fun.I then do a little ramblin’ on the pre-ramble, on which I talk about two more Black men being killed because of officers with itchy trigger fingers.All the while football fans in Tennessee are burning couches because of a win, and, of course, that’s just all harmless fun!

For the palaver this week I have a friend of mine on, Jason Comeau aka Pastor Jay, to talk about disagreements in our community and how the ability to hash these differences out amicably seems to have been lost to some extent. We also talk about how different types of personalities, specifically activists and those who don’t have that skillset, can communicate without resorting to name calling. I think we had a difficult conversation that is too rarely discussed, and I think you will enjoy the insights even if you may not necessarily agree with the conclusions. Thank y’all for stopping by once again, and I hope you enjoy it.
