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 51 : Reasonable Discussion Of Gentrification

It’s time once again for another exciting episode of The Triple Po! In the pre-ramble I give a synopsis of what happened at the second iteration of Atheists at the Pub. Spoiler : It was fucking awesome! I then mention my drunken appearance on Brainstorm Podcast, and especially my rant about an article regarding trans people and dating. Also, friend and previous guest on the show Natalie Newell was on The Scathing Atheist to talk about her documentary ‘Science Moms’.

For the palaver of, I have host of Reasonable Risk podcast to talk about gentrification. We talk the definition of gentrification, asking well as the pros and cons. We then offer up ways that a balance might be achieved between the needs of developers and those people who are being harmed by the effects of gentrification.

On the post-ramble I apologize for the shitty sound quality of my side of the interview, which almost certainly a result of the laptop mic somehow being uses as opposed to my regular microphone. And once again because I have a shitty memory and I forgot to mention the fact in the pre-ramble, I mention that the show logo was spruced up a bit, just in time for the #OneYearPodunkiversary. Speaking of that, I also forgot to mention in the pre-ramble that the one-year anniversary live show is coming up on August 12th. Make sure you ‘call in’ via Google Hangouts. It should be a lot of fun. There might even be some Facebook karaoke involved! Thanks for listening, and I hope y’all enjoy the show!
