Skeptionians! It has been far too long (seven days in fact) since we last talked about who is gracing us with their presence this fall, so let’s get crackin’!
Author of What’s Wrong With Homosexuality (spoiler alert: nothing) and co-author of Debating Same Sex Marriage, John Corvino is more awesome than dinosaurs with mustaches and hats. He is also a youtuber, philosopher, speaker, professor at Wayne State University and international man of mystery. Here is his website and twitter so you can find out more.
Monica R. Miller
Currently a Senior Research Fellow with The Institute for Humanist Studies (Washington, DC) and co-chair of a new American Academy of Religion (AAR) group entitled ‘Critical Approaches to the Study of Hip Hop and Religion,’ Miller is principal investigator of a large scale survey project (Remaking Religion) in Portland, Oregon which explores religion in youth culture. She is the author of Religion and Hip Hop and is hard at work on her second book entitled Blacklandia: The Subtleties of Race in Portland.
PZ Myers favorite speaker at Skepticon and of all time, Rebecca is the O.G. Skepchick and kicks all of the asses. She has an asteroid named after her and co-hosts the Skeptics Guide to the Universe. Here is her twitter–now go follow her and send her a link to a picture of an adorable sloth!
Head honcho over at The Thinking Atheist, Seth Andrews is the author of Deconverted: A Journey from Religion to Reason, podcaster and fabricator of all the media things. Go to his twitter so you can tweet at him how psyched you are to see him this year! There may be just about a million Seth Andrews in the world (trust us, we googled it), but we like this one a whole lot. As a sidenote: Skepticon wants everyone to know we want Seth to read us stories at night because his voice is sweet, sweet velvety magic.
We’re halfway through the list! This year is going to be our most 6th one yet, I can just feel it!
Until next week!
