Da Prez Kris, Feisty Twyla and yours truly the Supreme Irreverend Doctor Randy Tyson welcome special guest Britt Marie Hermes to our humble podcast. Britt received a degree in naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University and practiced as a licensed naturopath for three years in the US until a number of realizations caused her to leave the profession to pursue a career in biomedical research and writes about her experiences on her blog titled Naturopathic Diaries (http://www NULL.naturopathicdiaries NULL.com/). Currently, she is a Master’s student at the University of Kiel in Germany studying inflammatory and genetic diseases.
In this installment, Da Prez Kris, Feisty Twylla and yours truly, the Supreme Irreverend Doctor Randy Tyson discuss the hope brought about by the recent federal election here in the Great White North; our kudos go out to an Edmonton atheist group for trying to get attendees of a psychic performance to see the light; Vancouver passes an ordinance banning the pseudoscientific skipping of floor numbers in high rise apartment buildings; Texas Christians lament freedom of religion by using their own freedom to protest the opening of a Satanic church; and finally, we talk about the essentials about atheists.
In this instalment, Da Prez Kris, Feisty Twyla and yours truly, the Supreme Irreverend Doctor Randy Tyson talk about our collective relief at the removal of Stephen Harper and what the incoming Liberal government might mean for science in Canada. We attended Alberta’s first secular meeting, the None of the Above conference in Red Deer, and we give our impressions of the event. A couple in British Columbia attempt to indoctrinating their grandchild with religion, claiming that the mother’s objection violates their freedom of religion. And finally, it didn’t take long for a prominent anti-vaxxer to claim that Sesame Street’s newest autistic muppet is a conspiracy by vaccine manufacturers to “normalize autism”.
