Today’s bonus content is a meditation on a very important issue in the skeptical movement (whether you are aware of it or not), and that is diversity. I won’t bother going into the issue here in this post; instead I will let the guests of our podcast do the talking.
The show begins with a clip from our Diversity in Skepticism panel from our recent Skepticamp conference, which began a large discussion within out own local community. YouTube video of the panel: Part 1 and Part 2.
We speak to Joel Guttormson, the atheist firebrand of Colorado (in my opinion).
We also speak to my wife, Cassandra (or “Kasi”) Yoder for her take on the panel and the issue of diversity in skepticism as a whole.
Lastly, we speak to Jamie Folsom (who sounds suspiciously like Joan Cusack) for her reflective thoughts on the panel and the phrase “people of color.”
That’s it folks!
