I’m a bit late getting announcements for the show out tonight. I’m not quite as upset, really, about the elections as you might suspect. It was fairly predictable to me. “The People” have spoken, and “The People” are clearly focused on what everyone else is doing, instead of what’s good for themselves. I think that’s really the most interesting takeaway here. I’m most concerned about the short-term effect this election will have on science progress, particularly on climate change: because those short-term effects will have long-lasting consequences.
Joining me tonight will once again be Cory Allen Heidelberger from Madville Times, and we’ll talk about all those things and more. Then, around the 8 o’clock hour, Ellee Spawn from Sioux Falls and I will talk about all sorts of things from voter competence to what “free thought” means to persons of religious backgrounds, and where such folks can find middleground with nontheist freethinkers.
I’ll also be willing to open up the phone lines and take callers. Interested parties should contact me privately. If you don’t have the “keys” to do that, respond in the comments to this post or in the Facebook group, and we’ll get it sorted out.
I’m looking forward to a great show! Thanks for listening!
