SIO162: In Defense of Elizabeth Warren

And also it’s the end of the world as we know it, in like 2040, due to climate change. Shouldn’t that mean we maybe vote democrat to have a chance for our kids to not die in the climate wars?

After that I do an in-depth analysis of the Elizabeth Warren situation, from the beginning. Many people, including some Native American groups, have been very critical of her DNA test promotion. I think they’ve been very unfair and in fact completely ignored most of what she said. Critiques that I referenced are linked below.

Vox Article; Atlantic Article by Native Geneticist; Cherokee Nation Response; Warren Video; Politifact on the DNA Test; Politifact on Warren Native History

SIO161: Mandisa Thomas, President of Black Nonbelievers

I had the pleasure of interviewing Mandisa Thomas, the president and founder of Black Nonbelievers! Mandisa talks about her fascinating background and the work she’s doing, and then we go on to talk about the black experience, some of the history involved, and how it is unique within atheism. We talk about what organizations might do to better serve a diverse community. For all the challenges we’ve faced as a country lately, Mandisa does have some optimism about the future and talks about why. Make sure to check out her Patreon here!

SIO160: The President Mocked A Sexual Assault Survivor

And all I’ve got for you this week is rage.  Warning: this is an explicit podcast and involves yelling. I break down the horrible news from this week, from a sexual predator being confirmed to the Supreme Court and Trump mocking his victim, to the Trump crime family committing fraud and avoid hundreds of millions in taxes. And NONE of this has any consequences. Because we didn’t vote. Democrats didn’t excite us.

SIO159: He’s Going To Be Confirmed

Let’s face it. I hope I’m wrong but I don’t think I am. I watched the entire Kavanaugh hearing and I’ve got thoughts. And rants. And raves. I hope it helps.

SIO158: Why Skeptics Should Believe the Kavanaugh Accusations

In this episode, I walk through all the evidence, testimony, and witnesses we have for the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh. I believe that after applying a skeptical lense, any rational person would have to conclude that Christine Blasey Ford is almost certainly telling us the truth about what happened. I also walk through a few of the most egregious examples of patriarchy bull sh*t responses to the accusations.

Some important sources:

Original WaPo Story; NYT Reporting on Accusations; Brilliant Slate Piece by Lili Loofbourow; Franklin Graham Wins Worst Person; Mark Judge is Horrible; Republicans Not Making Judge Testify; Kavanaugh is a Liar; Kavanaugh is a Worse Liar; Christine Ford Forced to Move; Friend Corroborates Story?
