OKC Atheists have done many, many things right.
On that list of right things (I encourage all atheist/skeptic groups to do this) is the way our groups support our ‘local talent’. Every month, we have a meet-up called ‘Disbelief Discourse’, dreamed up and executed by my adventures-in-anti-vaxers friend CJ.
At these meet-ups, our own members do presentations on math, philosophy, politics, blogging, feminism, anything. Its a platform for us to find, encourage, support our local folks, while giving the local people an opportunity to practice presenting, interacting with audiences, etc. Everyone learns something! It is a fantastic idea!
So its no surprise that at FreeOK, we like to support local talent too– This talk is by a professor/researcher/clinician in psychology at UCO, Caleb Lack:
