HOLY CRAP SKEPTICONERS!
It’s June! You know what that means? Each week we are going to release the names of the speakers that will be coming to Springfield, MO to rock your frickin’ socks off. Without further ado:
Mere words cannot describe the man that is Aron Ra. Sent from an unknown Vulcan/Cowboy/Badass Mofo clan of people, Aron Ra lays down the law of evolution with his amazeballs yurturbes videos and immaculate facial hair. He is also the Texas State Director of the American Atheists and has a show about magic sandwiches. We couldn’t be happier to have him coming to speak this year, so check out Aron’s (pronounced ar-ron for you noobs out there) blorg and twitters to find out more.
Amanda Knief is the Administrative Director at the American Atheists, author, dog lover, giver of amazing hugs, and absolute workhorse for the secular movement through her lobbying and tireless activism. In the past, she has been the Government Relations Manager at the Secular Coalition for America, board member of the American Humanist Association, and has cultivated an army of secular lobbyists across the country with her speeches and workshops. Here is her twittar so you can know more about this truly amazing lady.
Amanda Marcotte is a journalist, blogger, and overall BAMF feminist/skeptic superhero. She has written articles for SLATE, Salon.com, The Guardian, and a whole host of other super impressive places on top of being the executive editor of Pandagon, writing a couple of books and she still finds the time to hit us up daily with all of the knowledges. We’re pretty sure she never sleeps, so check out her awesome twittery thing and get readin’.
Yes, all those names start in A for AWESOME! Til’ next week!
