Today I interview my dear friend and housemate, Joel. I met Joel in high school when we worked at the same Bible camp together. This is basically two interviews. In the first half, Joel & I reminisce about our backgrounds. In the second half, I share with Joel about my first shroom trip. Have you been curious about what it's like to do shrooms as an atheist? Well, you're gonna wanna listen to this one. *****Now that we’ve begun to process our history with toxic religion, we seek to regain autonomy over our minds and bodies from residual narratives, whether cultural or religious; while working towards respecting and empowering the autonomy of others. Together, we seek to rejoin the human race and participate in this chaotic experience of existence Thanks for listening and remember: You are autonomous and so is everyone else.

Today I speak with this show's editor and my very dear friend Caleb Rowe. I met Caleb on the internet in 2019. I was searching for other ex-Christian accounts and found his, noticing that he, too, lived in Minnesota. We had a brief exchange on Instagram and he invited me to his place to record an episode on his podcast, Heir of Grievances. What was going to be an hour interview turned into 3 hours and we've been besties ever since. He calls himself a Christian Atheist and I've spent 1.5 years trying to understand him and his weird church led by Jay Bakker, who I interviewed on this podcast as well. As he planned his move from Minneapolis to Seattle, we said goodbye many times but also wanted to record an episode together to share our friendship and weirdness with you all. *****Now that we’ve begun to process our history with toxic religion, we seek to regain autonomy over our minds and bodies from residual narratives, whether cultural or religious; while working towards respecting and empowering the autonomy of others.

In today’s episode, I speak with John. John grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in a family that was very chill about their Christianity. When John prayed the sinner’s prayer at a YMCA camp, his family wasn’t cool with it. But John was hooked. He eventually threw away his KISS albums. In his young adult life, his faith cooled a bit until he met a special someone. His girlfriend was very passionate about her faith and so John’s faith was revitalized through his relationship with her. He decided to go to Bible school. He and his girlfriend married and they eventually were spending all their time at the church. Even with a newborn and very little income, the young couple tithed, believing in the doctrine of prosperity gospel. They were groomed by their pastor to plant a church. John naturally developed an interest in doing church-like work outside of a church setting which did not sit well with his spiritual leaders. Finally, when researching the basis for tithing, he found himself unintentionally beginning his deconstruction journey. John gradually moved into a gentler version of god, inspired by Buddhism and practicing meditation. He began to research how the brain works which changed how he saw everything, eventually calling himself an atheist. Now he embraces Buddhist teachings about yielding to overcome. I hope you enjoy this conversation with my friend John.

It's Everyone's Autonomous' ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! This is a special episode off the usual biweekly release with a special guest. Today I interview... my husband of ten years: Keith. Not like most episodes, this is more of a behind-the-scenes of Marie's life. We talk about who we were when we met, our first date and our second date (which never really ended). We get into a healthy debate about bitching about those we don't agree with. Then Marie drops a bomb for the audience regarding a personal realization. Lastly, we share tips on how to say goodnight to someone you love. I hope you enjoy this episode. We really enjoyed making it. *****Now that we’ve begun to process our history with toxic religion, we seek to regain autonomy over our minds and bodies from residual narratives, whether cultural or religious; while working towards respecting and empowering the autonomy of others.
