My talk from Reason at the Rock is up!  Here ya go! Reason in the Rock was an absolutely amazing event.  It was a tribute to what community groups are capable. [Read more...]

I’m not going to make it to St. Louis tonight.

I was supposed to speak to the Atheist meetup in St. Louis tonight, but I’m in Lawrence with a fever and an inability to stay awake for long stretches.  Driving five hours would probably not be the smartest thing I’ve done this year. I’ve let the organizers know I won’t make it.  We’ve rescheduled for [Read More...]

American Atheists picking me up as a columnist.

As of a couple days ago, I’ve been acquired by American Atheists to write a recurring column for their magazine, American Atheist.  I’m excited!  I’ve never actually been a columnist before… I suspect it will be a lot of fun.  For now though, I’m going back to sleep.  I’ve woken up with a fever and [Read More...]

Jerry DeWitt: he’s still got it.

Jerry DeWitt is perhaps the kindest new face in the atheist movement.  He’ll be at Skepticon this year (not as a speaker, just hanging out).  I strongly urge you to track him down and spend a few minutes with him.  He’s amazing. He and I got to hang out at Reason in the Rock, which [Read More...]

Reason in the Rock is rocking!

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  Reason in the Rock is under way! The emcee opened by saying we’re not here to bash anyone else’s beliefs.  I guess I’ll be spending the entire morning re-writing my talk… First speaker up is Teresa MacBain, whom I met just last night.  She is very soft-spoken and very kind.  I expected her to [Read More...]

Tuesday conversation: Skepticon.

Of course I’m biased, being the event’s co-founder and original organizer, but Skepticon is my favorite event of the year.  The environment is like no other.  The place is an endorphin farm. So for those of you who have been, what were your thoughts?  Are you going back?  If so, why?  What is your favorite [Read More...]

Lauren Lane is not ready for Skepticon 5.

This is my friend Lauren Lane, Skepticon co-founder and one of the organizers to this very day, getting ready for Skepticon 5. Because at Skepticon, we do everything with way more intensity than the task requires. Skepticon! from Kaitlyn Chandler on Vimeo. The whole WWJTD team (Christina, Dr. Dave, Michaelyn, and Steven) will be at [Read More...]

Modifications to my Skepticon 5 name tag.

At Skepticon 4 I gave a personal account of my struggle with anorexia, depression, and hallucinations.  It took quite a bit out of me and I’ve declined to give it again every since (though now I think I’d be willing again). But it was very worth it.  Everywhere I speak now I have people give [Read More...]
