TPPP Episode 61 : Skepticon 10 Recap

Welcome to another thrilling edition of The Triple Po! I attended Skepticon 10, which was November 10 – 12 in Springfield, MO. I had a lot of fun, and I learned so much from the workshops and speakers. I got to meet so many cool people, both old friends and new faces. I want to thank you the organizers for putting it on, and I look forward to attending the next Skepticon, which I found out will be in St. Louis next time, which is closer to me!

For the palaver, I did some mini-interviews with six people : blogger, activist and friend Jessica Xiao; volunteer at the Humanist Service Corps Jude Lane; blogger and activist Heina Dadabhoy; blogger, activist, sometime podcaster and Queen of the Outrage Brigade Stephanie Zvan; Organizer and activist Monette Richards; and Founder and President of Black Nonbelievers Inc., and one of my favorite people Mandisa Thomas. It was such a pleasure and honor to speak to them. All of them have been on the show previously except Monette Richards, and that will be remedied soon as I am interviewing her next week. The show is longer than usual, but I felt that getting all these voices out there was important, and I hope I think y’all will agree.

TPPP Episode 30 : Intersections

Welcome to another episode of the Triple Po! On the pre-ramble this week, I talk about how some redneck Trump supporter at a rally in Nashville thought it would be an awesome idea to wear t-shirt that extolled the virtues of slavery. Someone got a picture of this guy, and Facebook did its thing and found out who it was. Needless to say, the vast majority of commenters were not amused. I also remind my listeners of the impending approach of NaNoCon 2017. It will be coming March 18th, and tickets will are $15 up until the day of the event, and $20 at the door, or until all the tickets sell out. Don’t wait and miss out on the greatest secular event in Middle Tennessee!

On the palaver I speak to writer and activist Jessica Xiao. We talk about intersectional feminism, as well a peripheral issues such as racism, White privilege, the difficulty of getting people to take criticism, and so much more. Jessica is a tireless advocate for social justice, and she is a well-spring of knowledge. She may think she rambles, but her mind is so full of knowledge that it’s no wonder she wants to share it with everyone! I hope you learn as much as I did!
