TPPP Episode 113 : Of Humanism and Poetry

This week on the Triple Po, Chris goes solo again as Lyman’s finger was about to fall off and so he went to urgent care. Personally I just think he’s dodging because he’s intimidated by my beard. That’s just my theory, though.

This week I have on author and activist Krista Cox. I initially became aware of Krista when I saw her on my friend Zach’s show, Zachrilege Cast. I loved the interview, and so I thought I would ask her to come on my show. Thankfully, she agreed!

We talk about her work with Feminist Humanist Alliance, an organization that “strives to build healthy communities that confront discrimination and oppression guided by the principles of intersectional feminism. We are determined to engage inequality through compassion, education, and promoting social liberation”. We also discussed a grant program the FHA is offering grants for going to going to the World Humanist Congress in 2020, as well as a grant for ‘Art for Action’ which facilitates making signs for demonstrations, protests, and rallies.

We also talked about the article she wrote about David Silverman regarding the allegations brought against him, and the problem with powerful men in the atheist community. We talk about the status of women in the movement and their level of acceptance in the, and also the level of diversity and how representation is important.

Also, we talk about the toxic male YouTube community, as well as men behaving badly on the internet. Oh, Krista does like her some dick pics, as long as they are sent consensually!

This is was an informative and also really enjoyable conversation. Krista is a great person, and she is incredibly funny. And she even read a poem of hers about fish and men (did I mention she is also a poet)? I think y’all will enjoy the conversation.
