Episode 5 – Secular Sisterhood

The cliche that atheists are a bunch of white men has persisted so long because many atheist groups tend to be dominated by them.

Where do freethinking women go for their community?  The Secular Hub is proud of our Secular Sisterhood, a group founded by women to provide a safe place for community, sharing, and support.

In this episode Ruth and Katie discuss what the Secular Sisterhood does, its mission, and what it means to its members.  What was the impetus for forming it in the first place, why was it even needed?

Also discussed in this episode;  the frenzy of sexual assault allegations, denials, and confessions that has dominated the media landscape touches the lives of secular people, too.  Katie and Ruth have a direct and candid discussion on this, and Jesse even gets in on the action to ask a few naive questions.

This is a serious conversation, so strong language and mature conversation occur.  Listen at your own risk.

4 – March for Science Denver

On the 22nd of April, 2017 legions of people around the world marched, taught, and learned together in the name of science, reason, and free speech.  Many thousands participated in Denver, including a delegation from the Secular Hub.  The HubCast was on hand to capture the energy of this historic event. Jesse Gilbertson and Mike Bouwmeester discuss Mike’s background and his work with the HubCast.  Mike interviews several activists at the march and at the teach-ins, including one of the event’s main organizers.

As this episode was recorded on site at Denver’s beautiful Civic Center Park the noise and energy of the event can be heard in the background, and that energy and enthusiasm can be heard in the diverse voices of those participating in this episode.

 

Recorded April 22, 2017.
