Episode 36 – Thinking About Thinking

We are all thinking all the time.  With some of us it might not always appears so, but our minds are running constantly.  Opinions, beliefs, evidence,  facts; all these elements combine and form in our minds.

Critical thought is a manner of thinking that will lead to greater and more factual understanding of the universe.  It relies on measurements and evidence and avoiding problems in thinking to reveal truths and separate them from falsehoods.

But truth is an ongoing process.  Truth is always tentative.  In this discussion Jesse and Paul get into the complexity of it all to break it down and simplify it.

In this episode we rely pretty heavily on a piece of writing called “A Field Guide to Critical Thinking” by James Lett.  Check it out and let us know what we got wrong in this episode.

Episode 30 – The Great War Part 3, Final

November 11, 1918 – November 11, 2018

In our final episode on World War 1 Robin, Chauncey, Jesse, and Paul discuss the final episode of PBS.org’s documentary, The Great War:  The American Experience.

Jesse shares from his great-grandfather’s war journal, written during the fighting in the Meuse-Argonne offensive.

This was a fun experience for us.  Was it for you?  Send us your feedback podcast@secularhub.org

The Great War, a documentary on PBS.org it still highly recommended.

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 3 of the documentary only.

Hosts: Jesse Gilbertson, Paul Schilling, Chauncey Williams, Robin

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
