TPPP Episode 68 : The Motto Guy

Hey y’all, it’s time for The Triple Po! On the pre-ramble I talk about the government shutdown. There is one senator who gives no fucks and tells Trump just what she thinks of his view of the military.

On the palaver, I speak to Rob Ray. He is co-host, along with his wife, of Secular Yakking, which is sadly being retired. However, there is a silver lining, because it gives him more time to work on his real passion, The Original Motto Project. The goal the organization is to promote E Pluribus Unum, the original national motto, which ‘promotes the truly inclusive nature of American society’. We talk about the project’s origins, mission statement, wins, losses, and what the future holds for the project, which includes a reinvigorated effort to make a real difference in getting the word out. Rob is a passionate guy, and by the end of the conversation you might even be motivated to volunteer!

TPPP Episode 32 : Yakking in Podunk

Thanks for stopping by and checking out this installment of TPPP! This week in the pre-ramble, I give a little review of the awesomeness that was NaNoCon 2o17. I had a great time, reconnected with people, met a lot of new people, and consumed copious amounts of beer. It was a beautiful day for it, and there was a bonfire the night before and an after party downtown that topped everything off nicely. A big thanks to the organizers for putting this together, and hopefully it will be even bigger and better next year!

For the palaver I talk to Robert and Amy over at Secular Yakking. We talk about their show, the Mr. Potter award, and their natural ability to yak at each other. We also talk about Robert’s side project, The Original Motto Project, which is trying to get In God We Trust removed from government property and replaced with the original motto, ‘E Pluribus Unum’ (Out of many, one). As if that weren’t enough, these two are involved with Camp Quest, and their children were campers and are now about to be counselors. There’s also yakking about Trump, Northern apathy and Southern enthusiasm for secular issues, ignorance and our shared status as SJWs. There’s a lot of yakking on this week’s episode, but hopefully y’all will find it entertaining!
