Secular Sexuality is a weekly call-in show live from Austin, Texas every Thursday at 7pm CT. Call us at 1-512-686-0279. We talk about sex from a secular perspective. Sex and sexuality are natural to all living creatures but religion takes this and twists it into something awful and to be ashamed of. Acceptance, education, and fun is what we strive for. We lay the intersection of sex and religion (and occasionally ourselves) bare, openly and honestly. We discuss a wide range of topics each we ...

A demand for justice, equality, and rational public policy. Beyond separation of church and state. A post-liberal, cosmopolitan perspective. Hosts: Christophe Difo, Sean Prophet, Joe Occhipinti All episodes available on video, at The Radical Secular YouTube channel.
 
There is a well organized and well funded effort to gut the Bill of Rights in this country and in the age of Trump, secular people seem to taking it on the chin more often. Secular Left is meant to be the light in the fog of Christian Nationalism supporting the idea that toxic religious belief is the root of most social justice issues today.
 
Throughout history, freethinkers have outraged the religious with their wacky ideas about the virtues of free speech, reason, and, of course, eating babies. Now, God is dying—and it's time to dispose of his remains. From the pits of Hell, Satan sends two puppets of the imperialist West and the Zionist Jews against God, Islam, and tiny kittens to bring you their propaganda and conspire for a new world order. This is Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment—with Ali Rizvi and Armin Navabi.
 
New grassroots school or sect of Nichiren, Lotus Sutra based secular Buddhism. A philosophical and ethical meditation practice and way of life. Buddha was not a god or deity. He was just a super "woke" aka enlightened human. We ALL have the ability to attain buddhahood, enlightenment, wokeness. Let's do it together and help ourselves, each other, and the planet!

PSF, Promoting Secular Feminism, is a podcast, blog, and community which stands at the intersection of secular humanism and intersectional feminism, with a heaping dose of comedy. Meet host Ms Bea Haven and correspondents, Ms Ann Thrope, Bella Constrictor, Madonna deHeaux, Frida Nipple, and Maura Borshuns as they take on subjects from menstruation to religion to politics, all with a witty sense of humor and a sharp wit.
 
Our internet-accelerated society has experienced a fraying of our social bonds. We experience a sense of instability and uncertainty. By drawing on wisdom from the religious traditions, embodied in literature and art, we can supplement our impoverished public discourse. Moreover, we maintain a commitment to our multi-cultural reality, putting collaborative pluralism, weaving, at the center. We can fight a culture of constant distraction and build up our capacity to contemplate and think deep ...

In this episode, Brad explores how meetings have changed his worldview when it comes to things "everybody does" and things that "nobody but me" does, and how important these realizations have been in his recovery. Also, he introduces an analogy for compulsive overeating using the idea of a "magic pill" that has given him a valuable tool when confro…
 
Kevin Bolling faced the biggest challenge he's faced as Executive Director of the Secular Student Alliance. He had to manage the group through the pandemic and then resume regular support once the schools opened back up. SSA launched a massive effort to reach 1.4 million students. He will tell us how SSA did it and what is in store for the group. L…
 
Amy is back from vacation. We talk about shopping on vacation, how vacation with kids isn’t vacation, and these two random guys talk about some sort of show they have.

In this episode, Brad shares some of his own "messy" amends and thinks through how best to approach them. It isn't always clear how--or even if--you should make amends, but sometimes it's the thinking through those issues that provide the benefit of this important step in Overeaters Anonymous' 12-step program.…

In this episode, Brad explores one of the most well-known (and most maligned) steps of any 12-program: making amends. What do harms you may have caused someone decades ago have to do with why you overeat today? Is this step really even necessary for recovery? In part one of unpacking step 8, Brad explains how he approached this step and why it was …
 
Perhaps as many as a third of us are neurodiverse- equipped out of the box with a brain that doesn’t neatly fit into our world because of ADHD, ASC, dyslexia, sensory processing and a handful of other considerations. Marie LePage, everyone’s favorite deconstructive and spiritual atheist, friend of the show, tells us their story of masking, loving a…
 
The return to religion has arguably become the dominant theme of contemporary culture. Somehow, the secular age seems to have been replaced by a new era where political action flows directly from theological, indeed cosmic, conflict. The Faith of the Faithless: Experiments in Political Theology (Verso, 2014) lays out the philosophical and political…
 
In this episode, Brad explores the aftermath of a recent challenging day and the insights he gained from it about how his brain works when confronted with unpleasant emotions or experiences. Using the metaphor of a road system to explain neural pathways, he describes what it's like to deliberately change the way he uses food as an escape and find a…

Nearly every share in an OA meeting starts with some version of "Hi, I'm ______ and I'm a compulsive overeater." Why is that? It can honestly feel a bit cultish, especially to those of us who may have had actual experiences in a cult-like religion. But is there a reason for it? Is it required to say that when you speak in a meeting? That's the topi…

There are SO MANY problems with the wording of step 7 for an atheist/agnostic. In this episode, Brad breaks this step down and discovers what is, at least for him, the "heart" of this step. Far beyond saying a simple prayer--which is what most traditional OAers do at this point--this step can be a powerful tool to help modify character traits that …
 
In this episode, Brad explores the reality of recovery and the possibility of failure. After a nasty binge, he gets curious about how the voice of his compulsion--he calls it his "monster"--lies to him and turns one of the best days into one of the worst.Door No God OA

If modern media is to be believed our forefathers were serious people with simple demands- the freedom to bear arms, buy cheap gas and believe in whatever alternative facts they choose. In a post Truth/ post Trump world it’s starting to feel like the message has gotten a little messy. The ACA’s own Kenneth Leonard joins Christy in a conversation ab…
 
Brad reflects on his first "bad" day in the program after eating far more calories than he should have. He explores the feelings of shame, judgement, and disappointment that follow and examines ways to identify where these feelings are coming from, how to learn from them, and how to move on with a search for recovery with hope and confidence.…
 
Bodyscapes of Power The Radical Secular is sponsored in part by Kanibal & Co. (00:00) Intro and T-Shirts (05:34) Why have we accepted intersex surgeries that mutilate children?

Abstinence. It's one of those words you hear in virtually every Overeaters Anonymous meeting, but it often doesn't make any sense related to food. In this episode, Brad returns to a previous topic to explore how his experience has changed in regards to claiming "abstinence" and how a simple question helped him develop a food plan that works. Perhap…

The old joke goes something like this- A man and a woman sit down with a therapist complaining about their sex life. “He wants it all the time, we never stop having sex/ she’s never in the mood, we practically never make love” they explain. “How often do you actually have sex?” the therapist asks. “Once or twice a week” they agree in unison. As old…

In this episode, Brad unpacks the extremely god-heavy sixth step which reads, "Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character." It's a difficult one to process as an atheist or agnostic, but, with the help of some other perspectives, it can become an insightful and powerful step along our journey to recovery. WARNING: There a…
 
The story of the “conflict thesis” between science and religion—the notion of perennial conflict or warfare between the two—is part of our modern self-understanding. As the story goes, John William Draper (1811–1882) and Andrew Dickson White (1832–1918) constructed dramatic narratives in the nineteenth century that cast religion as the relentless e…
 
In this step, Brad tackles one of the most difficult steps he encountered, mostly due to the way his religious background caused him to view the step with suspicion and fear. Why should we admit our failings to another person? What good could that possibly do? Brad explores how this step resulted in some surprising benefits and how it's helped him …
