Happy Monday! The latest episode of Bayou Blasphemy is up and ready for your heathen (or religious) ears! On this podcast, we talk about our experiences growing up with religion and what it means to raise kids without religion. Plus the Donald vs. Hillary in the general election, Glenn Beck's warning for 'Murica, anti-Bernie Sanders tow truck drivers, the West Point Cadets photo controversy and an update on Louisiana abortion legislation. Enjoy.
It's almost June, so ya'll know what that means...the trailer for Orange Is The New Black's new season is out! From what I can tell, our fourth go-around with Litchfield's inmate looks like it'll emphasize the drama side of dramedy. See for yourself below.
If you have an hour today, take time to listen to The Thinking Atheist's Seth Andrews interview with Dallas-based atheist activist Alix Jules, in which they discuss politics, race and atheism/secularism in the black community. The Ghostbusters 2-Donald Trump comparison at 24:18 alone is worth a listen.
Here's something to lift your spirit. Iconic abolitionist, suffragist and future $20 bill resident (bye Andrew!) Harriet Tubman will be getting the feature film treatment. A biopic entitled Harriet is in the works, with Charles D. King serving as producer and Seith Mann (Homeland, The Wire) signed on as director.
While Harriet will be the first big-screen chronicling of Tubman's extraordinary life, her story has been told on TV, with Cicely Tyson playing her in the 1978 miniseries A Woman Called Moses, and Viola Davis' upcoming portrayal based on Kate Clifford Larson's book Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman: Portrait of an American Hero, set to air on HBO.
Production is set to begin early next year. Read more about Harriet HERE.
Our little band of heathens have put another podcast away! On this latest episode of Bayou Blasphemy, we talk about the atheist movement's uneasy relationship with social justice. We also pay homage to Prince, talk LGBT laws in Louisiana, BDSM pro-choice Satanists and the American Family Association's Target boycott. Enjoy!
