Token Skeptic #75 - On Codes Of Conduct: A Brief History of Civility, Inclusivity, Sexism and Skepticism
Firstly, a three minute message about WHAT. HAS. BEEN. GOING. ON. and why an episode was delayed for a MONTH. Truly sorry, but unexpected circumstances.
Then what? An audio version of an essay that I've written for CSICOP's Curiouser and Curiouser about skepticism, sexism, diversity and all the things you might roll your eyes about - but may not have realised that it's been a concern for a very long time. So, it's going to continue that way unless we work on it even more. Enjoy!
Many thanks to Dr Karen Stollznow, Michael McRae, Desiree Schell, Barbara Drescher and The Digital Cuttlefish for advice, suggestions and guidance while writing this piece.
The written version of this podcast will be appearing on the CSICOP website - but the quotes and references I make (and in some cases directly read out) are as follows:
