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...

10/17/2017

There's something troubling going on in the atheist and skeptic community, and apparently it's been happening for awhile. People are getting away with sexual harassment and sometimes assault because they have standing in the community and people want to hear them speak at their conferences and have them as guests on their shows. I talk with Stephanie Zvan about this, how long it's been going on, and what we can do about it. You can find Stephanie's stuff...
