Staying Out Of It: A Reflection

Thomas Smith

Those who don’t know Thomas Smith (@TandtheB) and haven’t followed the controversy over Mythicist Milwaukee probably don’t have any interest in debates, Shitlords, or…Mythicist Milwaukee (MM).  While I’m not in that camp I have stayed away from the controversy surrounding Sargon of Akkad, an apparently horrible human being and YouTuber with a rather rabid following.  I had several reasons for doing this, which I’ll detail below, but after the nightmare that was MM I feel like I’ve dropped the ball as someone who calls themselves an activist and a part of the skeptical & humanist communities.  This is a long overdue retrospective on my handling of this situation.

Podcast Update: Computer Trouble

Broken Laptop

To our wonderful listeners: regrettably, backups on Jon’s editing PC stopped working last week and while logging in on Tuesday, the computer decided it no longer wanted to be a computer.  Jon is actively praying to Odin to resolve the issue but this unfortunately means there will be no Wayward Willis episode this week.  We will be back next week with our best episode yet (probably edited on a Mac)!

In the meantime, we’d like to urge you to help Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts by donating to Foundation Beyond Belief’s Humanist Disaster Recovery team.  Thank you for your support!
