TSP184: The Fox Virus

SecularPerspective

Click to listen…

We start with Amanda asking Chad for some family advice. Then we dive into what happens when the people you love are exposed to way too much conservative media. We also lightly touch on how the Christian right is trying to change America into a theocracy through carefully worded laws. We end with nun on nun sexual abuse.

TSP183: Issues with Leggings and Porn Access

SecularPerspective

Click to listen…

We have a couple stories out of Indiana again. The bigger stories we talk about though are about a Catholic university banning online porn on campus and one woman’s desire to make leggings go away. I was surprised at how long we were actually able to talk about this.

We really got beat up, emotionally, over this past weekend. The Mueller report dropped on Friday and we discuss that. But more so than that, we speak on multiple suicides from survivors of mass shootings. Two were students from Parkland, Florida and one a father of a Sandy Hook student.
