Bi Any Means Podcast #42: Being a Bisexual Atheist in the South with Kate Ashcraft, Sharon Bush, and Morgan Stringer

Today we’re going to talk about what it’s like being a bisexual atheist in the South. Joining me today are Kate Ashcraft and Sharon Bush of the Unbuckling the Bible Belt podcast (or as it’s known now, the UTBB podcast) and Morgan Stringer of the No Religion Required podcast to talk about their experiences. This is definitely going to be a conversation you don’t want to miss.

Bi Any Means Podcast #41: The Secular Barbershop with Uber4ortySe7en

My guest for today is Uber4ortySe7en, the host of the Secular Barbershop podcast. I first heard Uber as a guest on Angry Black Rant, so I decided to give him a listen. It’s a great show, and hopefully after this interview you’ll check him out, too. I also play an audio skit I recorded a few weeks ago with The Prophet Jeremiah from No Religion Required and Callie Wright from The Gaytheist Manifesto satirizing what many people consider to be "dictionary atheism." Enjoy!

Bi Any Means Podcast #40: Can We Talk about Feminism? with Beth Presswood and Dori Mooneyham

Joining me today are Beth Presswood and Dori Monneyham. Beth is the creator and co-host of the now-defunct podcast Godless Bitches, and Dori is transgender psych student who blogs about LGBT issues, atheism, and feminism. The two join me today to answer a question that’s on my mind a lot: Can we talk about feminism?

I don’t know why, but whenever someone mentions the word “feminism” in atheist circles, shit hits the fan. While I think certain feminist issues are extremely complex and full of nuances, feminism does bring up many issues that I think need to be discussed. Unfortunately, as soon as I say I’m a feminist, some people automatically dismiss what I have to say because they automatically assume I’m this walking stereotype. Hopefully this episode will start more productive conversations within the atheist community.
