Stay Tuned

So, I haven’t written much in a whle, but I do have an announcement. A podcast. This Wednesday, Gretchen Mullen (@skepticreview89), Sarah Braasch (@sarahjbraasch1) and me will start producing podcasts. They won’t be so long as to bore you (maximum agreed is 1 hour) but I think you’ll like what you hear from a Writer/Editor/Educator, a Aeronautical Engineer/Lawyer, and uhh, Me.

Stay tuned. These won’t be live, at least initially, and we’re in discussions as to how often we get together. Currently, we’re looking at twice per month but of course that would depend on our audience (you). Look for uploads here, on Sarah’s Youtube channel, and on my SoundCloud channel.  I’ll be playing engineer for the show so please forgive any mistakes. As we go along, the show will become more professionally formatted. We don’t have a name for the podcast yet, but I think by Wednesday, we will.

Having a Conversation With Your Opponents

We’ve lost the ability to have a meaningful dialogue amongst ourselves, notably those of us that have different views politically as well as socially. We are so divided that we refuse to entertain any idea that might fall outside our belief system. It hasn’t always been that way. There was actually a time, not that distant, where well intentioned people could have a conversation on any topic, even when they disagreed and that discussion wouldn’t devolve into name calling and screaming at one another. Just because someone disagrees doesn’t necessarily mean they’re wrong. Different people can look at the same information and come to different conclusions about that information. We’ve become tribal, and those that are not in our tribe are our enemies.

Call For a New Co-Host

Most of you probably don’t know, but I am a co-host of the podcast, “Chill Girls in Pink Corvettes”.
We’ve been off a while, mostly due to personal and professional issues but we’re starting back up. You can listen to our latest here.
What we’re looking for is another woman that would be available on Saturdays, every Saturday, for a podcast. Now, there might be dates missed, because of the above reasons, but the one selected must be available every Saturday.
Requirements? Well, first, you must be a woman. Second, a skeptic. We like people with open minds, that question what they hear or read.
What do we discuss? Pretty much everything. We try to have guests on every weekend to discuss any and all topics that involve Atheism and Skepticism. No, the job doesn’t pay anything. Neither Renee or I receive any renumeration for this podcast. We want smart, pithy, and funny. That’s it.
If you’re interested, please DM Renee at @kellysgal and me at @jeh704 on Twitter. There’s no real interview. It’s more about that you’re interested, can be there, and are a skeptic.
We’d love to have you. If you’re interested, please let us know. If you have questions, the same applies. Just tweet us, we’ll reply.
