Reading Time: 4 minutes There’s the world we want to live in, and there’s the world we have. In many conversations here on OnlySky, I’ve noticed that one of the biggest mental blocks in activist discourse is our frustration that people won’t think or do differently right now. Why should we cater to their ignorance, or their obstinacy? There’s […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes When I first recorded episodes for Global Humanist Shoptalk last year, I had no idea what 2022 was going to hold. I did suspect that far-right legislation would continue to pose problems, and that pandemic wouldn’t be over so easily after all.

Reading Time: 2 minutes The school year is fast approaching, and for my day job I teach high school Algebra. Then I write in my “spare time” when I probably should be doing something else to help pay the bills (have you ever seen what teachers in Mississippi make?). Aside from a full panel of Daddy duties, I try […]
Reading Time: < 1 minute Hey, everybody, I was a guest on the Atheists on High podcast and the episode just came out. Skeptic Bret is the host, and we chatted about atheism, the election, comedy, and marijuana. I initially told him I could only talk for an hour, but we went long.
