In this episode we mention how much fun we had at the recent Maumee Summer Fair then we talk about how Christian Nationalists like State Senator Theresa Gaverone violated state rules to hijack the Reproductive rights amendment in order to lie about what it actually does for pregnant individuals in the state.
Professor Lee Strang is a Christian Nationalist law professor who is the go to guy for the religious extremists in the Ohio state house when they need conservative justifications for hurting the people of Ohio. Strang also founded a public charter school that is really religious. He also believes the 1st amendment doesn’t apply to atheists or secular humanists.
Ever wonder why voting isn’t as straightforward as it seems? What if we told you that there are barriers at the polls that could limit citizen power in democracy? Join us for a robust dialogue with Greer Aeschbury, the Ohio senior campaign manager with All Voting is Local Action, as we dissect these and more on our podcast. We delve into the specifics of Issue 1, the recent voter ID law, and the Ohio Voter Rights Coalition’s efforts to make voting more accessible and fair.
Would you believe that one small change in our elections here in Ohio would not only end toxic political campaigns, but would make democracy more accessible and fair for everyone?

We talk to Alison Gill from American Atheists about religious freedom and the attacks on the LGBTQ community by Christian Nationalists

We talk to the interim executive director of the American Humanist Association, Nicole Carr, about her journey to Humanism, why social justice is important (it’s about church and state), and what goes into awarding the Humanist of the Year honor.
Part memoir, part step-by-step guide, ‘On Drowning Rats: How Two Women Took Down A Sexual Harasser and How You Can Too’ tells the triumphant story of Rachel Richardson and Cami Roth Szirotnyak, two women who discovered they were sexually harassed by the same man (one of Toledo’s most prominent nonprofit founders and fundraisers), and how they successfully—and publicly—sought justice.
