Callie and Ari are joined by founder and president of A Voice for the Innocent Jamie Sivrais, and domestic violence advocate Kyle Kleisinger to have an important conversation about sexual violence. We talk about its prevalence, debunk some myths, and give tips on how we can all be a part of the solution.

#039 – Let’s Do Compassion Better

Hear a talk I did at a Unitarian Universalist church about compassion and why sometimes people have such a gross lack of it, and a discussion between me, and my friends Ari and Jamie about some ways that we’ve failed, and some ways we’re working on getting better at showing compassion.

#037 – Cool Conventions, Joy, and a Gaytheism Redux

This week I have a conversation with Adam Collins, founder of the Atheists of Facebook online convention. Its a super novel concept and a neat solution to the problem of how expensive atheist conventions can be. I also had the change to sit down with Chris Johnson, and independent filmmaker who’s currently touring the country with his movie A Better Life. A Better Life explores what it means to be joyful and to find meaning in a life without God. Last but not least I have the audio from my talk at the GLSEN Youth Summit from Saturday Oct 24th, where I pitch atheist activism to an LGBT crowd. Enjoy!
