Re-Broadcast: Social Justice with Ed Smith

12/10/2017
More
This is the re-broadcast of my interview with Ed Smith of the now defunct Wayward Atheists podcast. We disagreed about a few things but it was still a pretty good conversation. I think this was a good example of the reasonable version of many arguments one hears from the anti-sjw side. I still think that much of what Ed says is incorrect but this was by far the best interview on the anti-sjw side of things, so far. If you want to listen to the Wayward Atheists you can find them at...
