Interview #64 - Activism and Education with Damien Marie Athope

Hey folks, welcome to another episode of The Mind of a Skeptical Leftist. This is my second interview with my friend Damien Marie Athope. In the first interview we talked mostly about his path from growing up in a conservative christian home to becoming an atheist and anarchist but in this episode we talk about how his anarchist view manifests in the way he lives his life. We also talk about some of the activism and volunteering he did over the years and how he went from activist to educator and why he views those as the same project in some ways.

I’m going to link at least one video in the show notes because Damien talks about a conversation he had with a formal axiologist and I thought it would be interesting to share that with you.

As usual thank you to all my patrons, you really make it possible for me to do this show and if I reach 200 dollars per month I will start paying my guests. Right now it’s tough to justify with the work that I put into each episode but if I reach 200 dollars then I can put that towards paying guests or paying Justin once we start doing Red Reviews again. We now have a tentative guide for the start of that as after the new year. If you want to contribute to me being able to pay my future guests then you can do that at Support levels start as low as a dollar per month or $1.50 for Canadians. If you can’t support me with money then hit the like button or go and write a review on Apple podcasts or on Podchaser. Make sure to subscribe on Youtube or in the podcast app of your choice so that you get new episodes as soon as they come out.

I know I’m a bit behind all the time with producing new episode but all my interviews are available on live and for 14 days after so make sure to follow me there as well
