Episode 34, Meow Wolf and Secular Hub, The Discussion

This is what secular community is all about;  making special moments happen and being part of it when it does.  It was great fun to be able to help arrange an event where we show a fun documentary with fun people in it and then…one of the stars of the doc walks into the room.

Huge thanks to Matt King and to the Meow Wolf for coming down to the Secular Hub and spending time talking with and answering questions for the community.

Listen to hear many in-depth answers to well-thought-out questions about one of the most interesting art collectives in our time.

Episode 33 – Meow Wolf and Secular Hub, The Interview

Matt King and Caity Kennedy in their Garage

No one knows exactly where Meow Wolf lives or where it comes from, but it has entered our universe and it’s not leaving.  There’s a great deal of interest and excitement around Meow Wolf’s permanent Santa Fe location, ‘The House of Eternal Return’ and an unholy amount of anticipation around Meow Wolf’s future permanent locations in Las Vegas and Denver.

Meow Wolf’s new locations are larger than the original (the Meow Wolf’s influence grows constantly!) and there are plans for many locations in many new cities.

Meow Wolf co-founder Matt King visited and joined into conversation with the Secular Hub at the Dinner and a Documentary event for January.  Engaging in a nearly hour long Q-and-A discussion with our community he then sat down before our microphones for a 1-0n-1 interview.

Events such as this are a remarkable example of just what a special place the Secular Hub is.  Hope to see you there soon.

Episode 26 – Dinner and a Documentary

For those with an inquisitive mind documentary films offer education and entertainment, a very satisfying combination.  At the Secular Hub a long-running series of events called Dinner and a Documentary has been providing this satisfaction to Hub members and guests in a group setting.  To make it even better Hub member and professional chef Andrew Curtis Forlines prepares a dinner to share with everybody.  Learn how watching documentaries together makes them better.

Donations to help support this and other events at the Secular Hub can be made directly to the Hub through the PayPal Giving Fund (fee free).

Episode 24 – The Great War Part 2

November 11, 1918 – November 11, 2018

One hundred years ago today the greatest and most violent struggle the world had known was brought to its end.  In this episode we continue our discussion of the war and the events that have had such a powerful effect on our world today

Watch the ceremony where Pvt. Henry Johnson was *finally, after 100 years* awarded with the American Medal of Honor.  It’s short and beautiful.  Thanks, Obama

The Great War, a documentary on PBS.org has been our guiding light in this journey, and we recommend you watch/view it.   The past is there to be learned from.  Make yourself wiser.

Note:  The Great War  is a six hour documentary, served up on PBS.org in three 2-hour segments.  This episode of the Secular Hubcast is drawn on our experience of Part 2 of the documentary only.

Hosts: Jesse Gilbertson, Paul Schilling, Chauncey Williams

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.
