One of the missions of the Glass City Humanist Podcast is to educate and promote Humanism to the community. One way to accomplish that is to have a featured segment during an episode where we hear a personal story from a Humanist about how they arrived at Humanism. What was their journey and what helped them become a Humanist.
We are looking for positive, uplifting stories. An essay on the dangers of religion, while important to some people’s journey, would be less likely to be picked for inclusion. There is no set length or format for a story however stories that can be read in 5 to 10 minutes are more likely to be used in the show.
Glass City Humanist would like the person who submits their story to read it during the show. We will arrange to record you reading your story to be included in a future episode. Reading your story isn’t required but will help make the story richer and more personal.
A possible end goal for this project is to collect all the submitted stories into a future e-book and/or recording.
If you would like to hear an example story, check out Episode 13 of the podcast. In the 3rd segment, Host Douglas Berger tells his story.
