About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Why Sam

Given that I complain endlessly about Sam Harris, some people have asked why I still listen to him. This podcast episode is an example of why. (But even in this powerful episode, Sam has to go on a digression where he rants that no one should talk about race, with the implication, as always, that only his straight, white, male perspective is "rational." <sigh>)

Side note: I updated my previous post to clarify that the quotes listed were from 1970.
