Another episode of The Triple Po has come upon us. I have a guest read the show intro, Lexi from Scenic City Skeptic. I hope to make this a regular feature as long as I can entice enough people to do it. On the pre-ramble, I talk about Matthew O’Neil’s articles and my opinion of the person who threw him under the bus, and my reactions to Matthew and the articles themselves. I also have the second voicemail ever from William and Jessica, both of you have been on previous episodes and who met and became friends at ReasonCon. It’s a fun and rambling message!
On the palaver, I talk to my good friend Jen from Not Another Podcast about the history of abortion, her personal experiences with the procedure, and some of the myths associated with this extremely controversial topic. Jen makes clear that she didn’t regret her decision, and that most people are of the same mind. It is an enlightening conversation, and though Jen thinks her story isn’t remarkable, I still admire her courage for being willing to speak out about it. My hope is that other people will hear her story and it will make them feel not quite so alone.
