What is a Secular Conference? – Episode 58

Colorado Secular Conference 2019

CSC 19 brought together hundreds of atheists and freethinkers from around the nation, as well as dozens of groups and vendors.  It was a special opportunity for community, camaraderie, and support as well as the vital exchange of ideas and lived experience on a large scale.

The Secular Hubcast was on hand to capture the moment by conducting interviews with some familiar voices and many new ones.

I know what I’ll be asking folks for the next little while:  Where’s the next conference you’ll be attending?

To learn more, contact the organizers, or buy merch pay CSC 19 a visit at their online home

Episode 41 – All Rise

The Humanist Legal Society held an event in Denver on 21 March, 2019 with Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart.  It was a great opportunity for legal professionals and complete novices (guilty as charged!) to gather in an informal, casual setting for a nice discussion.

Access of this sort is generally not available so as an event it was a knockout.  Hub board member and Founder Becky Greben joins the discussion afterward.

Welcome, newly-organized Denver branch of the Humanist Legal Society!  We look forward to many adventures to come.
