SIO187: Voicemail! Anti-Vaxers, Christchurch, White Fragility, and Other Topics

It’s time for a listener voicemail episode! We’ve got some really good topics/questions/critiques, so much so that I had to split this into a couple episodes. Topics include changing minds on things like anti-vax and white fragility, and how to be an atheist critical of Islam white not contributing to problematic anti-Muslim bigotry, and voting rights! Here’s a good article on what changes anti-vaxxers’ minds.

SIO186m: (Not) Defending Cardinal Pell, with Jake Farr-Wharton

Longtime friend of the show Jake Farr-Wharton is here to take us through the unpleasant story of Cardinal Pell. He is yet another Catholic priest in a long list who have been accused (and now found guilty) of serious sexual misconduct with minors. This story has a few wrinkles, though, as many high profile, powerful people supported Pell with character references. As it turns out, when Jake was in high school, he was asked to be a character witness for his priest, who was a very valued friend and mentor. Jake takes us through all this and we talk about the ethics involved.

SIO185m: The NZ Attack Blame Game

After a horrendous, disgusting, racist massacre in New Zealand, the killer left a trollish manifesto. While it’s clear some amount of it is pure sh*tposting, there is also a reason he targeted who he did. The internet has been on fire with who to blame, who not to blame, and as usual I’ve got some thoughts.

SIO184: Progressives Ruining Things

… like good old fashioned pedophilia? I’ve some miscellany and voicemails! The theme of today’s show is centered around people (usually white men) complaining about what they are losing when standards change. For example, us evil progressives have taken away this immensely popular picture of a sexual assault. And, for some reason, Eric Weinstein thinks the Simpsons taking down their Michael Jackson episode is bad? I also talk about lowering the voting age (and raising it.)

SIO183m: The Killing of #StephonClark

It’s been a year since Stephon Clark was gunned down in his grandmother’s backyard while holding a cell phone. Last weekend it was announced that the two officers would face no charges. I talk about the news, why it’s outrageous, and why something needs to change.

SIO182: A Conversation with Russell Glasser

If you’ve been an atheist any time in the last 15 years, it’s highly likely you’ve enjoyed the contributions of Russell Glasser on The Atheist Experience. Over the years, he’s answered countless calls from theists and atheists of all kinds. But in the last year or so, he has taken a firm step back from atheism and hasn’t appeared on TAE. He’s agreed to come on to talk about why, and about many related issues.
