McKrae Game
McKrae Game

Former Ministry Leader and speaker McKrae Game was fired by the board of the ministry he started to help Christians struggling with homosexuality when he could no longer keep to himself that he didn’t think God hated gay people.  Well that and his porn habit. After more than two years of processing that firing and coming to accept himself, he came out as a gay man in July 2019.

He asked for forgiveness from his former clients and began speaking out against Conversion Therapy. McKrae obviously missed having a mission in life and is turning to embrace being a front-line advocate for banning gay conversion therapy.

In this interview McKrae shares his view of life now that he’s out and coming to grips with what that means for himself and his family.

Thaddeus Howze
Thaddeus Howze Author | Editor | Futurist | The Answer Man

Thaddeus Howze’s had a lot of hopes and dreams for his son. When his son was diagnosed with severe Autism at the age of two those hopes and dreams were radically altered. The doctors said his son should be institutionalized, that Thaddeus should give up on his son.  The doctors were wrong.

Our conversation covers how Thaddeus fought back and overcame his own expectations for his exceptional son to give him the best chance possible to succeed in a neurotypical world

Episode 12 Divination What? with Lupa

Lupa is a professional artist and published author comfortably ensconced in the Pacific Northwest that I ran across on Facebook when for some reason the algorithm decided that I would be interested in a divination work shop. I wasn’t but I did issue a friendly challenge to her to try and convince me that I was wrong about divination.

A friendly conversation ensued and Lupa gave me some insight into what I was wrong about in regards to how she practiced divination.  She’s one of the most down to earth and practical pagans I’ve ever met she also makes some great artwork form dead things

you can see her website at TheGreenwolf.com and buy art at http://thegreenwolf.etsy.com

Episode 11 Erin Ehm v Blatchford

In early November Erin Ehm tried to do something that seemed liked it should be easy to do.  She was wrong.  This episode recounts her efforts to get her prosthetic foot fixed and how she ran up against a company decided to be less than helpful.  Her angry diatribe on Facebook struck a cord with many people and has been shared over 500 times

you can read the post here

Okay guys, I'm angry.Living my life is expensive and complicated. I make it seem easy, but it really is anything but….

Posted by Erin Ehm on Monday, November 4, 2019

People understood Erin’s anger and reached out to Blatchford to express their disapproval.  There was enough of a buzz that Blatchford attempted a response

you can see it here

 

Frankly to me it looks like a Now now little girl we know whats best run along now. *rolls eyes*

 

 

 

 

Frankly I think that in this story its Blatchford that is wrong.  They have the ability to help but are refusing to even though Erin was willing to pay for the help.

But you listen to the story yourself and decide.

Episode 10: The Public is Wrong about Paganism With Lea Rush and Theo Williams

Episode: 10

Episode Title: The Public is Wrong about Paganism

Guests: Lea Rush and Theo Williams

Host: Erin Furian

Podcast Website: wrongbefore.com

OMG we made it to Episode 10!

This week’s episode two of my favorite people agreed to be on the podcast.  I’ve known Lea for years and Theo has been a delightful addition to my life as her partner.

Lea and Theo have been involved with the pagan Community in the pacific northwest for over thirty years. Lea has been a volunteer and event organizer for many wiccan and science fiction conventions. Theo has been a Wiccan priest for many years.  Together they help me dispel some of the various myths that are wrong about what it means to be pagan.

Here is the link to The Aquarian Tabernacle Church of Wicca that is mentioned in the episode: atcwicca.org

And links to the Church of Satan churchofsatan.com and the Satanic Temple thesatanictemple.com which neither Lea or Theo are part of but that some people mistake wiccan for.

Episode 9 What happens in the brain when we are wrong? With Wendy S Hubbard

Episode: 9 What happens in the brain when we are wrong?

Guest: Wendy S. Hubbard

Show Website:  www.wrongbefore.com

This is more of a meta episode rather than a direct conversation about being wrong.  One of the advantages of being friends with someone for 20 years is the ability to impose on that friendship on occasion.  Wendy is on her third career as a nontraditional student at Adler University.  She is currently working on her doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I decided to pick her brain on about what happens inside the mind when someone is wrong.

We discuss what the brain is and why it’s so hard for people to accept being wrong.   Where that resistance comes from.

Evidently there are psychological and social reason we are so against being wrong!  Who knew!

Also I realized I was pretty bad about explaining some of the terms referenced in this episode so here is  list of most of them I think

Confirmation bias

CBT as in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

ACT is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Core Beliefs – woofta the internet has a lot of interpretations of what Core Beliefs are but in our conversation, they are things you believe that your actions flow out of

Adler University School of Psychology

Alfred Adler

Freud

Adlerian Theory

Gender roles

Aircraft Jacks – look a picture!

 

 

 

 

 

Prepper p.s. I’m much less a survivalist and much more a lets not die while camping please kind of prepper.  Also I know where my flashlight is in case of power outage.

Psychoanalysis – see Freud

Dream interpretation – same as above

Wendy throws these three dudes out there pretty quick; Erik Erickson, Jean Piaget, LS Vygotsky.  All of them are big muckty mucks in the field of psychology with different takes on how our minds work.  Wikipedia is your friend.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs There is a load of info out there on this and frankly understanding it can free you up to understanding somethings about the why of why you do some things.  Its handy to have in your brain as a reference.

Brenè Brown ok this chick is worth some time exploring her therories.  Just be warned I think she’s wordy and I’m kinda wordy myself

Episode 8

It’s Called Theater Darling

Guest: Margaret Gorman

With Special appearance by Nevil Shortbottom, Pug extraordinaire

When my son stated he would be joining the theater program at school I steeled myself for bad renditions of a Charlie Brown Christmas or Romeo and Juliet .  What I found was well run show with actors intent on providing the best performance they could,  professional choreography, sound and lights happening right on que and at the heart of it all, Margaret Gorman.

The Evergreen High School Theater director is the vibrant beating heart of this program. Her passion for the students a key factor in sharing her years of knowledge and skill with them to inspire them to achieve some truly incredible work.

Margaret  graduated from Hudson’s Bat High School in 1999 then proceeded to get a BA in French literature from Whitman College in 2004.  She did her Theater post-bac work at Portland State University through 2009 and received her MAT with endorsements  in theater and French through Willamette University in 2011

She’s taught at North Salem High School, Hazelbrook Middle School, Tualatin High School, and The Ballroom Dance Company.  She started teaching at Evergreen High School in 2015, with additional training through:
The Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford-Upon-Avon in 2017 and the Broadway Teachers Workshop, New York City in 2018

Here is a list of the plays she’s directed:
The Wizard of Oz
Greek Tragedy
Our Town
Romeo & Juliet
A collection of fractured fairy tales
Annie (two different productions)
Beauty and the Beast
The Three Musketeers
Oklahoma
Pride & Prejudice
Guys & Dolls
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Mary Poppins
Robin Hood
Wendy & Peter Pan

Margaret is a vibrant dynamo of a person who is force for good in the lives of the students she teaches.

Her Pug, Nevill Shortbottom, heard in this episode as the snore at about the midpoint, is also a student favorite and recently played Sandy in the EHS production of Annie.

Episode 7 Trump Voter Lyn Barger

President Trump waving from Air Force One
President Donald J. Trump . (Official White House Photo by D. Myles Cullen)

A lot of people have someone in their family that they disagree with politically.  It can lead to some tense discussions.  My sister and I have had our relationship challenges, some related to politics some just from being siblings.  I’m a liberal lefty while she is a staunch republican voter with Libertarian values.  In this episode we discuss why it is she voted for Trump in 2016 and clarify some of her political views in a respectful and non-combative ways. While I do not agree with her choices I can respect that she had reasons for opinions.

 

This episode was recorded prior to the whistle blower report so does not cover that topic.

Lyn Barger is a nurse living in the pacific northwest.
