THINKING THURSDAY: A New Way to Do Democracy: Zac Gandara

THINKING THURSDAY: A New Way to Do Democracy: Zac Gandara

Thinking Thursday’s are about critically thinking, breaking out of boxes, and discussing new ways we could live this life together.

On this weeks Monday Meltdown, we discussed our ambivalence toward voting and democracy. Today we’re gonna address what we could possibly do about this. Can we do democracy differently? We all know it's flawed, but can we critically think our way to creating something better?

THINKING THURSDAY: The Second Sex: Men and Women are Equal: Simone de Beauvoir

Thinking Thursday is about learning how to think. We live in a world where people like to tell us what to think, but has anyone taught us how to think?

On this weeks episode, we talk about Simone de Beauvoir. She is well known for her extensive work illuminating the ways in which women had become secondary to men throughout history. Fittingly, she is also well known as the lifelong partner to Jean-Paul Sartre, one of the most notable 20th-century philosophers.

EPISODE 011: There is Power in Being Public: Lysia Nieves

We've always wanted Losing Our Religion to be a hilarious and candid look at religion and culture, where I, a former American pastor has drinks with former religious freaks, and others I used to shun.  Like Gays, Anarchists, Queers, Atheists, Transsexuals, Punk Rockers, and the rest of us that are considered rejects on this island of misfit toys.  This episode is finally getting to that goal.  Misfits UNITE!
