About 5-6 few weeks ago, Richard Carrier made this public on his blog:
In terms of public facts: I am not an employee of either Camp Quest or the SSA, or any of their affiliates. Nor am I on their boards of directors or speakers’ bureaus. I have rarely even volunteered for them. And “the wife of the Executive Director of the Secular Student Alliance” is a strange way to refer to Amanda Metskas, who is actually the national Executive Director of Camp Quest, which Amy seems to be concerned about. Amanda and I are indeed dating. But she and her husband, August Brunsman, are publicly polyamorous,
After a decade and a half of service, August E. Brunsman IV, Executive Director of the Secular Student Alliance, has announced his decision to depart the organization in the next year as he looks toward the next phase of his life.
In the meantime, Carrier is looking for a place to crash on his road trip to some myther conference:
I’ll be driving from Columbus to Milwaukee to attend the debate. But I don’t have to go direct. I can go a circuitous route. So I’ll be giving those tickets to anyone who can arrange the following:
- A place to crash for a night on my way to Milwaukee.
- A gathering of fans or any other interested folk who’d love to hang out and chat with me about history or philosophy, at any pub of your choosing (or any house or place you prefer).
You’ll need to be flexible as to the exact evening for the meetup; it could be any weeknight before that Friday. But we’ll lock the exact night down well in advance. I won’t be delivering a speech or anything. I’ll just be showing up, free of charge, to hang out.
