Episode 17 – Queer Secularism

Meet Kim.  Hub founder and leader for years, she recently took the opportunity to visit the Secular Hub and speak about gender identity.  Societal norms on the subject are in the process of a great and substantial shift and it’s thanks to all those who have stood up to fight for basic human rights and dignity for so many years.

The fight is never over, however, and it’s people like Kim who have fought and continue to fight.

The decisions of the Supreme Court are extremely powerful.  Read the wiki article on the Obergefell decision here.  If you’re a glutton for punishment you can actually look at the decision itself

NSFW! NSFW! Trigger Warning!  It’s from the ’80s!

Please note: this episode was recorded at the Hub and there’s a lot of friendly noise in the background.  Too many happy people hanging around.  It peters out around 1/3 of the way through the interview

Episode 16 – Evidence Based People

On the 14th of April, 2018 marchers once again assembled to take a stand and speak out at this historic moment.  In Denver, the very heart of the city was taken over by marchers and demonstrators. 

The message was clear, “We want our leaders to take an evidence-based approach to policy and our world”.

Mike Baumeester and podcast newcomer AJ participated in the march and conducted during-the-march interviews, and Mike even stuck around the Secular Hub’s volunteer tent to put in even more volunteer hours.

Because this episode was recorded during a march and inside Denver’s beautiful Civic Center Park the noise and energy of the event can be heard in the background as well as in the diverse voices of those.

Recorded April 14, 2018.

Topics covered in this episode, for further consideration:

March For Science Denver  or visit the national organization March for Science

Oasis community in Salt Lake City, you say?  Why yes, indeed.  Check out their upcoming events

Where exactly does Brigham Young U fall in the nation’s colleges and universities least friendly to LGBTQ rights?

Speaking of things unfriendly to LGBTQ, conversion therapy is still practiced in many areas.  The bill in Colorado to prevent its application to minors has been stopped for the 2018 legislative session.  As usual.  Let’s all keep up pressure on our elected officials to do the right thing.  Find your own representatives here
