It’s time once again for the best podcast you’ve never heard of, The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week in the pre-ramble I read new iTunes reviews, though one douchepickle decided to give me a one-star review. Sad! I then go on an angry rant about the latest sexual harassment allegations against Louis CK, Al Franken and Roy Moore. I am so fed up with these guys doing this shit. It’s time for men to start calling out other men on this bullshit fucking behavior. This is the only way to get this shit to stop.
On the palaver I speak with activist and knitter Monette Richards. We talk about her work at Secular Woman and CFI of Northeast Ohio. We also talk about the workshops she gave at Skepticon, one and half of which I attended! We discussed other topics such as Mythicist Milwaukee, YouTube atheists, the #metoo campaign, and much more. Monette was a pleasure to talk to, and she is passionate about her work, which really comes through in the interview. She is also funny and down to earth, and I am glad I got to meet her in person at Skepticon! I think y’all will enjoy our conversation.
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.
