“Josiah Mannion and Baba Brinkman on Art and Activism” on The Humanist Hour

As we go into Reason Rally, we talk a little bit on The Humanist Hour about why representation matters and how art can get us there.

Art has the potential to reach people in ways no simple argument can. As such, it’s always been harnessed for activist pursuits. From design that adds impact to a message, to providing the sugar coating on an educational pill, to telling us stories we need to hear – activism needs art. Humanist activism is no exception. On this week’s show, we talk to two artists whose art exists for far more than art’s sake.

Stephanie Zvan talks to Josiah Mannion about his photography and his motto, “I take pictures of humans. This is my Humanism.” Later, Kim Ellington talks with Baba Brinkman about his album The Rap Guide to Religion and about having his work peer-reviewed by scientists.
