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.
