March Ask Me Anything & Subscriber Discount
Plus, "Beyond Woke" has reached 10K Subscribers on Substack!
It’s that time again—paid subscribers are invited to submit questions for our March Ask Me Anything (AMA). Note, I am in Australia as a special guest of University of Technology Sydney. Reid Nicewonder, videographer and president of Street Epistemology International, is here as well and will participate in our AMA answer video. Feel free to include questions about Australia or specifically for Reid! Comments on this post are open to paid subscribers.
Submit your questions here by sundown (your time) on Thursday, March 23. If you are thinking about becoming a paid subscriber to participate in AMAs, keep reading…
Subscriber Discount through March 31, 2023
Because of your support, we’ve reached over 10,000 subscribers on Substack! Our videos continue to make waves because of your contributions and feedback.
Both free and paid subscribers get a first look at the week’s new videos and written content. Paid subscribers can participate in AMAs, watch exclusive behind-the-scenes content, and more. The normal paid subscription is $5/month or $50/year, but we are offering a discount through the end of the month (March 31st). With this limited-time offer, you can get 10% off an annual subscription (which is already discounted from a month-to-month subscription!).
All contributions go directly to my non-profit, National Progress Alliance, which pays for our video projects. We believe civil conversations are an essential addition to the often irrational online landscape.
Thank you for making this work possible, and tell your friends about it!
Having watched many videos of your reverse Q&A's and street epistemology (and learning so much as a family!), we have a question about practical application with our friends and family members. We'd like to plant some seeds of doubt on the topic of "drag queen story hour" which they all seem to have embraced as a civil rights issue. We see their posts on social media such as, "It's not just about drag queens just like it was never just about water fountains" and "The biggest danger of taking your child to a drag show is that a christian could show up with a gun." We aren't going to engage on social media. In person, however, what would be a good, non-threatening opener so we could invite a conversation? Given that people tend to cling to their beliefs more when you offer them evidence, we're a little stuck since they may not be aware of some of the overtly sexual content or the predatory history of some of these men masquerading as exaggerated versions of women. Or, they may think this is all perfectly OK! What would be some strategies we could use to at least start a friendly conversation? Thank you! FYI, my son (16) just quoted you in a project on free speech for his class at PCC.
It has been so interesting to see you taking the street epistemology abroad. I was thinking about the degrees to which people are open to playing the game, and what inspires that openness vs. the 'epistemological constipation' displayed by my social work colleagues in Portland. I wonder how much of it is temperament versus lived experience? What's your take?
