Bi Any Means Podcast #146: The Trans Podcaster Visibility Initiative with Callie Wright and Marissa McCool

Today’s episode is the audio from an online panel discussion Callie Wright, Marissa McCool, and I did about the Trans Podcaster Visibility Initiative during last week’s online OrbitCon. OrbitCon was a three-day online conference organized by the bloggers at The Orbit featuring panels and talks livestreamed on YouTube about atheism and social justice. Benny Vimes introduced us and asked us a few audience questions near the end, but mostly it’s the three of us talking about what the Initiative does, as well as talk about trans visibility in the atheist movement.

Bi Any Means Podcast #145: My Suicidal Episode

As you may remember from the intro to last week’s episode, I recently had an emergency where I almost drank myself to death. I’m doing much better now, thankfully, but I’ve been focused so much on recovery that I didn’t feel like booking a guest for this week, so instead I’m going to tell you what happened and how I’m re-evaluating my life.

Needless to say, this episode has all the trigger warnings, so if you’re not in a good place right now, you can skip this and come back if and when you’re in a much better space.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to do this episode or not because I’m sure I’ll write about it in future articles and mention it on other podcasts. But since most of you all know me best through this podcast, I figured this would be the best place to share my story right now.

Bi Any Means Podcast #142: How to Avoid Activist Burnout—Live from NaNoCon ‘18

Today’s episode is my NaNoCon presentation “How to Avoid Activist Burnout.” The audio you are about to hear is the 20 minute opening talk and my closing words at the end. What you won’t hear is the discussion questions I asked the audience to discuss among themselves because I didn’t want to put people’s voices online without permission. But overall people said they enjoyed my workshop, and I hope you will do the same.

Bi Any Means Podcast #140: Secular Women Work with Stephanie Zvan

Returning to the show today is Stephanie Zvan. She’s helping put together the second Secular Women Work conference, which will be held in Minneapolis from August 24th to the 26th of this year. Today I have her back on the show to talk about the upcoming conference, plus how the mainstream atheist movement can create safer spaces for attendees in the wake of Lawrence Krauss.

As a head’s up, we will discuss rape and sexual misconduct in the atheist movement, so listener discretion is highly advised. But it’s a conversation that needs to be had besides just plugging awesome upcoming conferences.
