Roy Moore

TPPP Episode 64 : A Systems Enthusiast

Welcome back to The Triple Po! After a mental health break, I have returned bigger, but necessarily better. On the pre-ramble I talk about Doug Jones and his victory over Roy Moore in the special election for US Senate in Alabama. The margin was only 1.5%, but a win is a win. Roy Moore decides he isn’t going to concede until God tells him to do so, which means the Alabama Secretary of State will have to have to make that call for him. I also briefly discuss the latest Star Wars installment and my feelings about it. Don’t worry, there are no spoilers!

On the palaver I speak to Kevin Watson (no relation) about the various political and economic systems that exist or have existed in human history. We then speak of which systems are especially germane to our current political climate, and what it means for our nation. Kevin laid it out very well, and he did so objectively as possible, though he admits a left-leaning bias. I learned quite a bit, and I hope you will to.

TPPP Episode 62 : A Secular Woman

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.
