Brave Hero Radio – Who are Justin Vacula and Karla Porter?

ScreenHunter_254 May. 01 19.39Earlier today, Karla Porter — my co-host on Brave Hero Radio — suggested that she interview me on a special episode of Brave Hero Radio, perhaps diverting away from the focus of most episodes, to talk beyond ideas presented online in order for viewers to learn more about me.

In online spaces, I generally do not talk much about my personal life, background, and interests apart from pursuits related to atheism, skepticism, and secularism – so this should be a great time for some self-disclosure! Karla, too, will be interviewed in a future episode so that fans of the show can learn about both hosts.
