Andrew L. Seidel, Author and Attorney – Episode 65

On September 7, 2019 Andrew Seidel visited the Secular Hub and spoke to a packed house.  The Hubcast was on hand to catch his talk as well as the audience participation time afterward.

Andrew Seidel has been working with Freedom From Religion Foundation for years and has come to be posted as the Director of Strategic Response.  As a trial lawyer he has argued successfully in favor of free speech and the separation of church and state.

In his new book, The Founding Myth, Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American, Andrew discusses his research on our nation’s beginnings, what was happening in America at the time, and what it means for us today.  This was a fantastic event at the Hub and we at the Hubcast are proud to present the audio from this great event.

GUESTS:

From Freedom From Religion Foundation, Director of Strategic Response, Andrew Seidel

From Denver Metro FFRF Chapter,  Claudette and Joel

Oh, Are We Ready? – Episode 64

Some events at the Secular Hub are just an absolute delight to go to, and everyone who attends helps a worthy cause at the same time.  This week on the Secular Hub, Jesse attends the Hub’s annual chili cook-off and conducts a few casual interviews with some of the attendees.  It’s a slice of life from our fun times.

The Secular Volunteer Corps organized and hosted, and the proceeds of the fundraiser are being directed to Heart 9/11.  All together we raised over $300 to donate to this great charity.

I’ve always felt that the Hub should be a source of power and support to other organizations, so it was delightful to participate in such a great event.  Thanks Monique for organizing and running this thing!

What is a Secular Conference? – Episode 58

Episode 27 – The Longest Night

Happy New Year!  The year’s end is a time for being with the people most important to us, saying goodbye to the past, and looking forward to the future.

Celebrations around this time of year can sometimes be difficult for nonbelievers, especially without the received ceremonies and traditions that our religious friends can rely on.  That’s why the Secular Hub opens up with its own traditions and parties.

In this slice-of-life recording, Jesse gets several Hub members to open up about traditions, volunteerism, and other topics important to those being interviewed.  It’s also a party, and you can hear all the fun and merriment that Hubsters are known for!

Email the Hubcast team:  podcast@secularhub.org.  We’re waiting to hear from you!

The Hub’s Meetup.com page is one of the best ways to learn what is happening.  Learn about Recovering From Religion, the Pancake Breakfast, Movie Night, and every other group and activity mentioned.

How does Project C.U.R.E help children (and others) around the world?  Learn here and you’ll see why freethinkers in Denver are helping them out

What does it mean to sweat the small stuff?  Andrew Seidel from the FFRF explains in this video why it’s so important
