Seen on the greater fediverse (@intherain):
"If you’re looking for an ethical or open source or privacy-preserving alternative to just about any online service, here is a surprisingly comprehensive list: https://ethical.net/resources/
There were a few things missing, but there was also a ton of stuff I hadn't heard of before."
@mike you might find this useful in your quest to de-evil your social media experience (if you aren't already aware of it).
New #AskScienceMike this week, featuring some actual science questions (in addition to faith and life advice stuff). https://asksciencemike.podbean.com/e/episode-176-selection-strategies-teleportation-and-libido-during-grief/
@mike, I enjoyed hearing you talk about selection strategies on the latest #AskScienceMike, but was sad you didn't take a tangent into one of my favourite evolutionary concepts, the red queen hypothesis. If you don't know it, I think you will love it https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/sex/advantage/page03.html. I also thought you'd enjoy a bit of adaptive dynamics and evolutionary suicide so here is another link https://ercim-news.ercim.eu/en73/special/evolutionary-suicide
Liturgist fam-I need help finding a children’s book or 5 that feature interracial parents/families! Particularly if the mother is white and the father is black. The book(s) doesn’t have to be about interracial families necessarily, just looking for illustrations that depict such a family. Thanks in advance!
@mike Im listening to your interview on jen hatmakers pod and the story presents itself in my brain "Mike went through all of that so that he could start the liturgists and be so helpful to so many of us" but then this is the liturgists so were all like "naaaaaaaaaaaaa there aren't reasons for things that happen.... thats our prefrontal cortex trying to build narrative to convince us we are the center of the universe"
Hey #buddhist6 patrons, part 3 is on Patreon now and will be public in a week. I’m looking forward to this.
Thank you, @vishnu and @mike for your willingness and openness to take on topics that may not be easy or comfortable. This series has generated a lot of great conversation here that may not have taken place without you taking a chance.
I released a new #AskScienceMike on science literacty today. I hope people listen, because wow, we need more science literacy these days. https://asksciencemike.podbean.com/e/episode-175-science/
New #TheLiturgists Podcast
We’ve got a new episode with Richard Rohr out, in case you missed it over the weekend.
I feel attacked. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bus5qEGFVCh/
One of the most fun podcast convos I can recall was the one I had with Jen Hatmaker on her podcast, For the Love. The episode came out today, and I think you may enjoy it. http://jenhatmaker.com/faith-groundbreakers-episode-02-mike-mchargue
Anyone here in the LA / San Diego area? I am coming there between 2nd-16th April and speaking a few times.
Would love to connect with anyone there! Welcome to come hear me speak as well. :)
(Hoping to catch @mike whilst I am there too!)

FB, IG, and TW’s Death Grip on Commerce
Out of a desire to continue to feed my family, I’m probably going to have to crawl back to our libertarian, hyper-capitalist, Sillicon Valley Overlords.
I just have to figure out how to do that while protecitng my mental health, and ideally, not allowing my presence on those platforms to act as an exploitive lever agaisnt my audience
So shitty, y’all. So shitty.
FB, IG, and TW’s Death Grip on Commerce
So, I’ve been off of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for like 5 weeks, and I haven’t felt happier in a long time. I’m less activated. I’m activated less often. I am able to be present with friends and family, and that cloying cloud of constant anxiety has faded complete.
Too bad my business are in bad shape. 😕
My abscense from corporate social sites is impacting almost everything I do. Downloads are down. Ticket sales are down. Patron sign ups are down.
If you’re near Boulder, CO or Portland, OR, I’d love to see you in May. http://www.theliturgists.com/events
My friend Emily made an INCREDIBLE video for her spoken word piece about what it’s like to be a woman working in roles dominated by men. Wow, you’ve got to see this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSvKrNdXGUg
