Welcome to another episode of The Podunk Polymath Podcast! On this installment of everyone’s favorite Southern podcast, I speak with newly minted friend Lyman Smith. We first talk about our meeting, along with his lovely fiancé and friend of the show Natalie Newell, at the American Atheists Convention 2019 in Cincinnati, and our experiences at the convention, including how his Backpack Old Fashioned becoming the Official Drink of the American Atheists Convention 2019.
We then talk about his approach to parenting as an atheist and freethinker. He mentions the importance of teaching his son empathy and kindness, as well as being honest and forthright when answering difficult questions, including those pertaining to the existence of God. Lyman is a great guy, and this was an enlightening conversation. Hopefully any current or prospective parents who are listening will gain some insight from this interview.
