Welcome friends, to a podcast for a darker timeline. Maybe the darkest of all timelines. Definitely not one of the good timelines. Maybe it’s always been a dark timeline, maybe the Hadron collider screwed us over. Science may never know. What we do know is that we live in the void. The void, a place where a chittering mass of void crabs can infest a person suit and win the presidency. The void, a place where we're just clever enough to know that climate change is happening, but not quite clever enough to do anything about it. The void seems terrible and cruel, but it loves you, in its own ironic way.

    EV - 144 Conservative Postmodernism with Matt McManus

    My Guest this week is Matt McManus (@MattPolProf), a professor of philosophy at TEC De Monterrey. Matt is the Solo or co-author of Myth and Mayhem: A Leftist Critique of Jordan Peterson and The Rise of Post-Modern Conservatism. We discuss his understanding of postmodernism and how he thinks it can sometimes fruitfully be applied to the right as well.

    EV - 141 Secular Student Alliance with Kevin Bolling

    My guest this week is Kevin Bolling, executive director of the Secular Student Alliance (@SecularStudents). We discuss the role of secular student groups in the lives of young nonbelievers, and how they especially play a vital community role in the lives of nonbelievers who come from faith based families. This is a particularly fortuitous conversation given what I'll be discussing next week with Alison Gill.
