In previous episodes of this podcast, we’ve established that rituals are important. But why? And how is it connected to our own nature, and the nature around us? Sasha Sagan has written a book all about the subject. It would be hard to imagine a more Humanize Me book, and by such a gifted communicator!

In this conversation, Bart Campolo talks with Sasha about the kinds of rituals we have, how they operate for secular people, encouraging deeper thinking about why we mark the occasions we do, and how to create good conversations around them.

Sasha Sagan is a writer and speaker living in Boston. She shares another feature with Bart: a famous dad. Carl Sagan, the popular cosmologist and science communicator, was a huge influence in Sasha’s life, and they talk about him near the end of their conversation. Her book, For Small Creatures Such as We, can be found on Amazon.

‘How are you not freaking out?’ is the question Gabe asks in one of the two songs we play in this inaugural episode of 2020. Gabe is an artist, musician, poet and more. His C5 spinal injury, incurred when he was 15 years old, left him paralyzed from the armpits down. What more could there be to freak out about? In this conversation, Bart talks with Gabe about finding a room of one’s own in a hostile world, his art including an electronic rock opera telling the story of his life, sexuality and intimacy as a disabled person, music as therapy, Gabe’s agnosticism about God and more.

Gabe’s music can be found on Spotify under his stage name Freaque. He’s also on YouTube and his photos can be found on Instagram.

Humanize Me trivia: Gabe’s father Matthew was our guest in Episode 337.

3012, 2019

It’s an end-of-the-year podcast from Bart Campolo, who answers a question from a listener called John.

John wants to know whether faith (of a sort) can still be useful for a post-Christian, whether believing something without evidence can sometimes have its benefits. Bart answers with a riff on the difference between optimism and hope, and thinks about its applicability to the new decade we’re going into this week.

Happy New Year to all our listeners, and especially to our supporters on Patreon! We couldn’t do it without you. See you in 2020!

Emma Bloomfield researches the intersection of science and religious rhetoric, particularly around issues of climate change, human origins and the body.

In this conversation with Bart Campolo, Emma talks about how Christians tend to think differently about science and the environment, the three ‘types’ of religious climate skeptic (separators, bargainers and harmonizers), the similarities between creationists and climate change skeptics, how language matters, how ideological ‘purity’ and orthodoxy can push people away from contributing to positive change, the importance of storytelling, and why she feels hopeful after her conversations with the groups she wrote about.

Emma’s book, Communication Strategies for Engaging Climate Skeptics: Religion and the Environment, is available from Amazon.
