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.”
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!
