TPPP Episode 136 : Of Death, Dying, and Disbelief

This week Zach and I have on Candace Gorham. We talk about her new book ‘On Death, Dying, and Disbelief’. We also talk about her journey to atheism, her work as a licensed mental health professional, her other book, and her love of hiking!

Candace is a licensed professional mental health counselor. She is a former ordained minister turned atheist-humanist activist, researcher, and writer on issues related to race, religion, and mental health. She is a member of the Black Humanist Alliance advisory board, The Secular Therapist Project, and The Clergy Project. Candace is also the author of “The Ebony Exodus Project: Why Some Black Women Are Walking Out on Religion—and Others Should Too.”

TPPP Episode 54 : Grieving Without God

Welcome to another episode of The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week in the pre-ramble, I talk about my experiences at Kentucky Freethought Convention. I had a great time, and I got to meet some great people, including past guest Warren Alan Tidwell as well as the author of the Charles Chilton Moore biography ‘The Most Hated Man in Kentucky’! I also got to hang out with some old friends, namely AJ, Jen, Mandisa, Johnny, Brittany, and the Crails! The Crails were kind enough to let me stay the weekend and they even let me ride with them to Louisville! And I got out alive! Seriously though I owe them a debt of gratitude and hopefully I will be able to pay it back someday.

On the palaver I speak with Carrie Hazel about how she dealt with the loss of her husband while being an atheist. The story is heartbreaking, and I am so honored that she took the time to talk to me about the process she went through, her feelings, and what the future holds. If you have dealt with grief, even if not from a secular point of view, she gives some great advice on how to deal with it. I learned much from her, and I hope you will as well.
