Episode 90 - New Directions for Secular Humanism
August 29, 2011
Part II of the concluding session of a record-setting national conference features a wide-ranging Q&A session in which audience questions are fielded by a cross-section of the event’s speakers.
On October 9, 2010, the Council for Secular Humanism presented its 30th anniversary conference at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. The conference’s concluding session featured speakers from other sessions of the conference including Jennifer Michael Hecht, Victor Stenger, Barry Kosmin, Shadia Drury, Ronald A. Lindsay, and many others. Also featured were two speakers who had not participated in other sessions of the conference: author-scientist Richard Carrier; and Sean Faircloth, executive director of the Secular Coalition of America. This episode features the bulk of a most vigorous question period.
The session was chaired by Tom Flynn, executive director of the Council for Secular Humanism and editor of Free Inquiry magazine.
