Seriously folks, if the “believers vs non-believers” gets any traction? We all lose. Some great words by one of my favourite Australians (although I actually like his wife Susan Carland more; check her work out too). Read more

Of course, with the Token Skeptic blog  hosted in the atheist-section of Patheos, you can expect me to go “ah, Dawkins, coming to Perth for the first time” – but here’s a few things that might be of interest to anyone who is wondering about stretching their wings a little when it comes to events that can challenge their mindset, beyond yet another well-known-white-guy-atheist touring. I love me a good festival, which is pretty much why you can spot me running… Read more

I’m up and about revoltingly early (well, that’s not so unusual, but I’m not going on the radio today – however, if you do tune into the livestream of TEDxPerth or are attending the event, you can catch me doing some Q&A and a panel with some of the presenters!) – in order to get a pair of podcasts done for you this weekend: Firstly, over on the Atheist Foundation of Australia website, AtheistAus Podcast #8 is out! The two featured… Read more

Just a quick blogpost as I spent most of today working to get audio at the #WalkTogether rally (you can see most of what I did over on Instagram) – but I really want to write up some of what it was like hearing Tony Ortega in person after he completed his Unbreakable Miss Lovely tour here in my town. In fact – the newest podcast by the Token Skeptic features the interview (second one I’ve had the pleasure to… Read more

New podcast out real soon – in fact, if you subscribe as a Patreon (for as little as $1!!) – you even get to suggest some songs I could play on the radio this Monday (Sunday afternoon for everyone in the USA; Monday breakfast time for everyone east coast Australia). On the topic of playing music for everyone else – today I was editing some audio with a deadline of about an hour before it went to air, and I got to hear a bit… Read more

Anti-abortion activist Troy Newman really isn’t having a good time today. Or yesterday. It kind of depends what time zone you’re in, and he’s just gone through both in order to be very, very disappointed. In case you can’t read the small print: “As many of you know, I’m scheduled to speak in a national tour with Right to Life Australia, from the 1st to 10th of October. But the Australian Government revoked my Visa at the last minute. The… Read more

It helps if I can remember how to get back into the blog… so I can blog. How is everyone? I’ve just recovered from three weeks without a voice, which pretty much removed my ability to do anything at all for most of September – resulting in three podcasts in quick succession as October rolled in. Mama’s gotta pay for the hosting fees of the show after all. I’d outline exactly what it was like, but I think this photo… Read more
