Parenting Within Reason (link: www.parentingwithinreason.org) (PWR) was an excellent secular podcast targeted toward secular parenting that went off the air last year. But thanks to numerous pasta prayers sent to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and sponsors Parenting Beyond Belief and Secular Woman, who signed on early in support of the podcast, PWR has been resurrected!
PWR 2.0 will have a similarly relaxed vibe as the original, but will shift focus more toward general secular topics and parenting information related to current events, with a secular parenting viewpoint and a sprinkling of general freethought news.
Other confirmed guests include Sean Faircloth, Director of Strategy and Policy for the Richard Dawkins Foundation of Reason and Science to discuss this year’s political climate and how to use it to teach your kids about politics, Amanda Metskas returning to give an update on Camp Quest activities, and Katherine Stewart to discuss her book The Good News Club.
Potential show topics also include:
- queer parenting
- secular military families
- secular homeschooling
- dealing with death
- as well as interviews with authors of various secular parenting books, blogs, and other resources
With new hosts, new topics, science and secular experts in various fields of discussion, along with the potential for calling in to chat with guests, PWR aims to be an important resource for secular parents to stay connected to the freethought community.
