TPPP Episode 100 : Out With The Old, In With The New

It’s episode 100 of The Triple Po! I first wanted to thank my patrons for giving their hard earned money to a show of questionable value. Y’all are truly awesome. And of course I want to thank everyone who has listened to the show, given me feedback, and been supportive overall. It really means a lot, and I really do appreciate it.

Of course, the new episode name and logo was unveiled this episode. The name is The Postmodern Polymaths, which is a bit of a poke at those pretentious fucks such as Jordan Peterson who ramble on incessantly about ‘postmodernism’ and ‘cultural Marxism’ ruining our world and making everyone into snowflakes. Of course, we all know what an incoherent and pseudo-intellectual douchecanoe Peterson and his ilk are. Unfortunately, there are a lot Angry White Dudes who listen to him, and they have been know to do some crazy shit.

After the unveiling, Lyman and myself talked about the shooting in Santa Clarita, where three kids died in a high school shooting, including the shooter. Of course we talk about the prevalence of these sort of events, and the lack of political will to do anything about it thanks to the fact that so many politicians are in the pockets of the NRA. We talked about the necessity of background checks and the fetishizing of guns in general. On a cautiously optimistic note, we spoke about how a judge has allowed a law suit against Remington to go forward. I am pessimistic that anything will come of it, but maybe this will open the floodgates to more of these kind of suits being filed.

We talked about an excellent article written by Krista Cox about her disenfranchisement from the atheist community, mainly due to men behaving badly, and the lack of accountability they face. She of course also talks about how David Silverman was able to ride the road to redemption to become general director of Atheist Alliance International, despite his demonstrable record of bad choices and shitty behavior. It’s infuriating, but unfortunately not surprising.

Thanks again to everyone who has listened to and supported the show. I am humbled and thankful that so many have taken time out to listen to my rambling. Here’s to 100 more!

TPPP Episode 99 : Common Ground

Welcome to episode 99 of The Podunk Polymath Podcast. This week I speak to Ashley Hall about her experience as a social worker, as well as the different types and challenges a member of the profession faces.

We then talk about autism. We talk about what autism is; symptoms; causes; as well as controversies and misconceptions surrounding this condition. We also talk about Ashley’s personal experiences with her autism; how it affects her life; and the unique challenges autism present. I learned quite a bit, and this episode runs longer than usual because this is a subject I’m really fascinated with.

A note about the audio : I forgot to change the setting on the app I use to record these conversations, and thus once again I have ‘Barry White Voice’. There were also some connection problems, but I think I managed to edit most of those issues out. It’s still a great interview, I think, and I hope you agree.

TPPP Episode 98 :Wokus Dei

Welcome to another exciting of The Triple Po! First we briefly discuss my vasectomy, both my experience and the aftermath. Let me tell you, this makes for fascinating listening! We talk briefly also about Trump’s dumbassery regarding the raid that killed al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, and how it succeeded not BECAUSE of him, but IN SPITE of him, as well as his narcissistic and overblown announcement when it occurred, including classified information that will probably harm our and our allies efforts to capitalize on this killing. And of course we talk about the glorious booing that rained down upon him at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington, DC. His reaction going from a smile to a crestfallen look, on the verge of crying, is a think of pure beauty.

Most of our episode though (and probably more oxygen than these douchebags deserve) are those assmonkeys over at Freethought Prophet, mostly regarding their Silverman worship and seeming inability to recognize that platforming that asshole is only further legitimizing him, thus further telegraphing to women that they shouldn’t be expected to feel safe regarding powerful White dudes in the ‘atheist movement’. Of course, this caused my friend Zach, who is pretty levelheaded, to light into them as only he can, before finally giving up because he has better things to do. Well we don’t! And we’re petty! So fuck those guys and their matching shirts and lava lamps! We are Wokus Dei!

TPPP Episode 97 : Hail Satan!

If you what to know more about The Satanic Temple, or if you just like to hear White dudes ramble on incessantly, give it a listen! Nathan’s sexy ASMR sample he gives us with his sexy voice is worth the price of admission alone!

TPPP Episode 96 : Chris Goes Deep

Episode 96 of the Triple Po is upon us. This week the dynamic duo talk about the ending of one podcast, Everyone’s Agnostic, and the beginning of another, Everyone’s Autonomous; everybody’s favorite genocidal maniac Columbus, and how his celebratory day is being rightfully co-opted by Indigenous Peoples’ Day; the issue of clueless Wypipo using blackface for costumes; an innovative new approach to helping those with mental illness that doesn’t include calling the cops so they can murder them; and of course random rambling in between.

Somehow, my voice was recorded a couple of octaves too low, so I sound like Barry White, or I’m under sedation. Anyway, we hope you enjoy!

TPPP Episode 95 : The Co-host With The Most

This episode marks a new phase of the show with the introduction of a co-host! But first, I play the nice song Tony and Maggot Brain, aka God, from Conversations with God Podcast made for me upon becoming a patron (again)

The unveiling the co-host follows. And he is…Lyman Smith! A Facebook friend and fiance of my friend Natalie Newell, I finally got to meet him at the American Atheists Conference in Cincinnati, which was in April of 2019. He is incredibly intelligent, empathetic, and funny, as well as like some sort of hacker guy. We had a mostly rambling discussion about our beers and current events, including the current Turkey invasion of Syria debacle; Trump being an idiot in general; Ellen DeGeneres buddying up with Dubya; grown men being scared of Greta Thunberg; crazy cats; and so much more. Don’t forget if you have a suggestion for the name of the podcast to tweet the show using the hashtag #TPPPNewName, despite it being derided and mocked by a specific listener. I am really excited about this new direction, and I’m ecstatic to have Lyman on board. I hope you agree.

TPPP Episode 94 : Dying Out Loud

I had the opportunity to go to the abode of Cass Midgley, co-host of Everyone’s Agnostic podcast, to interview Dave Warnock. Dave is an ex-pastor who deconverted to atheism. He was diagnosed with ALS fairly recently, and he made the decision not to just sit around and wait for death, but instead he is, what he calls ‘dying out loud’. We talked about his past life as a pastor; his deconversion and the ensuing consequences; and his diagnosis. He has been traveling the country talking about his experience, and he is inspiring people on the way. I was really honored to speak with Dave. He is helped so many people with his words, and that is a rare trait nowadays. I hope y’all find him as amazing as I did.
