Happy Labor Day!! The Radical Secular team is off for the long weekend, so we bring you an encore presentation of Secular Left podcast episode 25 with Doug Berger, featuring an audio interview with The Radical Secular co-hosts Christophe Difo and Sean Prophet.
(01:41) What is The Radical Secular podcast? How did you get started?
(05:28) Are you atheists, agnostics, or just secular?
(07:27) Do you have an overall viewpoint for the show?
(11:45) How do you feel that your first year of your show went?
(18:59) Discussion and brief synopsis of The Radical Secular episode 52, “The Vile Pseudoscience of Charles Murray.” Intellectual dishonesty on the right. Right wing denial that what they say, is actually what they mean.
(23:52) Do you both have the same viewpoint on topics? How do you handle disagreements? Example of episode 47 of The Radical Secular, “I am Tim Scott.”
(30:43) Discussion on black intergroup conflict. Religion obscures power. Trumpism has laid bare that conservatism has nothing to do with small government, or individualism, but rather it’s become about justifying the naked abuse of power.
(36:32) Republican hypocrisy about the January 6, 2021 insurrection.
(39:59) Trumpers just want to be able to get away with bad behavior. They obfuscate the outcomes of their policies.
(41:25) Synopsis of the book “The Sum of Us,” by Heather McGhee.
(46:27) Why you should watch / listen to The Radical Secular.
(51:00) Wrapup and Outro.
