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.

3 – Andrew Curtis Forlines – Secular Comedy Home School

This week we speak with Secular Hub member Andrew Curtis Forlines.  Currently a chef and comedian in the Denver area, Andrew speaks about what it was like to grow up home schooled, never visiting or attending any organized school.  What type of religious thinking can create a situation where children don’t have a basic right to an education, and what are some of the consequences?
Andrew and Jesse also discuss the comedy scene, accidentally getting a contact high at work, making scientists better communicators and bringing people together.  In addition to being a member of the Secular Hub Andrew also volunteers at the Hub by organizing and running events such as Secular Night Live, cooking for events like pancake breakfasts, and running Dinner and a Documentary night, as well as other events.  He’s kind of a working machine.
