A Note to Sponsors – “at home in my head” Giving Back
I wanted to provide a “thank you” to the folks who have sponsored on Anchor, or dropped a tip on PayPal. Although sponsor and PayPal info are included in the description, I don’t really push for that or promote it, so funding for the podcast isn’t huge. However, because a lot of my recent content has included the experiences of marginalized groups, I realized that I needed to pay it back in some way. It isn’t enough to just talk about these issues–action is also required. What good is information if it doesn’t lead to change? I decided to lead by example, and so I am letting people know that I used proceeds received on Anchor, to date, to sponsor the “Women of Color – Beyond Belief Conference” and also to buy bus passes to support the Atheists Helping the Homeless effort that Phil and I discussed in a prior episode. I consider sharing the voices of these communities and advocates a social obligation. And when I saw I was benefiting from sharing their voices, I recognized an additional obligation to give back. I’d just as well advise people to donate directly to the causes themselves, instead of to me/my podcast. But if I don’t pay it back after receiving benefits from the voices of marginalized people, then I’m doing nothing but appropriating their oppression.
Thank you to those of you who made it possible. Together we can be that change in the world we want to see.

Happy Juneteenth 2021

CW: Mention of sexual violence in the context of enslaved people.

“What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sound of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants brass fronted impudence; your shout of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanks-givings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy — a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour.”

Frederick Douglass, July 5, 1852

Conversation with Dr. David Ince

Topic: Perspectives on Global & Structural Racism, with Dr. David Ince.

Thank you!
I wanted to just provide a “thank you” to the folks who have sponsored on Anchor, or dropped a tip on PayPal. Although sponsor and PayPal info is included in the description, I don’t really push for that or promote it. So, to the folks who went out of their way to find that and use it, I thought you all deserved a shout out–at least an acknowledgement that I did “see” what you did. I appreciate the support.
