I met Jana through Ben. She studied religion, but worked in television. She became a therapist after doing group-therapy as a research project for the “Being Erica” TV show, which Jana created and wrote. She is culturally Jewish, but identifies as a hedonist. It was a real pleasure chatting with her.

It’s been more than a year since Ben’s first interview, so I reached out to do part 2. We talked mostly about Jordan Peterson’s ideas and how they relate to recent developments in the Unitarian Universalist (UU) world.

I met Mitch on Facebook where I was drawn to his sharp and abrasive communication style. He was raised in a secular Jewish home, and considers himself agnostic. I like to think of Mitch as a cute kitten with sharp little claws.

Antonio is the third person I have interviewed as a result of my group-email to the websites listed on the Wiki page on Sedevacantism. He runs the sedevacantist.uk
website. We spoke about his winding journey into the Catholic Church, and, ultimately, into Sedevacantism.

I met Thoth about 20 years ago when we were both agnostics. I met him through the University of Concordia Film department. Because of his sensitive creative nature, he has a lively sense of humour and a fresh way of seeing things. He now lives in Taiwan.
