Bi Any Means Podcast #97: ReasonCon3

Today’s episode is a collection of short interviews I did with some of the speakers and attendees of last week’s ReasonCon3 conference in Hickory, NC. First up is Gene Elliott, who helped organize the event. Then I chat with Matt Dillahunty, one of the speakers. Then we hear from friend of the show, Louis Mendez, followed by Heath and Eli from God Awful Movies. And finally I chat with Callie Wright from the Gaytheist Manifesto, who pretty much stole the show, and you’ll soon find out why.

Bi Any Means Podcast #96: #NormalizeAtheism with Mel Rice

My guest for today is Mel Rice, operations manager for the Normalize Atheism Campaign. The Normalize Atheism Campaign was created by Mark Nebo of Be Secular as a way to destigmatize atheism back in 2014, but recently joined forces with Sincere Kirabo and Steve Shives to reinvigorate it. So today we’re going to talk to Mel about the campaign, her role there, and her backstory.

As a head’s up, part of Mel’s story involves being a domestic violence survivor, so listener discretion is advised. See? I issued a trigger warning, and nobody’s free speech got taken away. Maybe I’m not doing it right.
