Episode 57 – Feeding on the News 3

Once again we at the Hubcast delve into the news.  It never stops flowing and by paying attention over time we hope to learn and grow more, and possibly achieve some kind of wisdom and familiarity with the world.

First we discuss the testimony of Robert Mueller before Congress.  We also look at developments in the stories of well known pedophiles and child pornographers.  Not a pretty subject but one we shouldn’t be afraid to speak of.  Especially as we look at alleged connections between these shady figures and our own government.

Episode 56 – Guns and the 2nd Amendment: Carving a Path Through

Join us for this diverse episode featuring Jesse Gilbertson, Chris Shelton and Melissa Shelton as we walk the rocky path of guns, gun ownership and the Second Amendment. In this episode we talk straight about gun rights, the moral implications of guns and what we think are the best solutions for how to solve our nations gun issues. The conversation takes twists and turns and sometimes even goes in circles as we test out our critical thinking skills. Hopefully, by the end you’ll have a clear understanding of the issues, where you stand on the subject and where we stand. I want to thank Jesse, Chris and Mel for putting up with all my questions and thought experiments as I know they are not everyone’s favorite exercise. I hope that it was all worth going through in order to fully flush out exactly what our values are regarding guns and how we came to our final conclusions. Please come down to the Secular Hub next Sunday at 10am for coffee and community and if want to discuss it further, I’m all ears.

Episode 55 – Increase Your Liberty

REX

Liberty is a tricky subject to talk about.  It’s complex and personal and in some ways lends itself to magical thinking.  It’s as if it somehow pervades the universe or we’re endowed by some creator.

But really it’s just a concept.  Can we think about it scientifically?  Can we analyse a sample in a petri dish and watch it grow?  In this episode we consider how you can increase your liberty

HOST, EDITOR:  Jesse Gilbertson

Notes:

We started with the Bill of Rights

I referred to incarceration in US as being over 2 million souls.  The jibes with Wikipedia

The Bureau of Justice Statistics measures it a little different, and came up with a different result

Here’s what John Oliver said about net neutrality.  I love him.  It’s too late, but still funny as hell
