Thomas Westbrook - Holy Koolaid


Thomas Westbrook (Founder)

I was raised as a missionary kid in a former Soviet, Muslim country in Central Asia and double majored in International Studies and Russian at Texas A&M with a concentration in Political Science. I’m a full-time secular activist and science communicator, a former board member of the Atheist Community of Tulsa, and am a founding board member of the Faithless Forum Conference (the first-ever atheist/skeptic YouTube conference).

I also co-hosted The Here and How Podcast with Stephen Woodford (Rationality Rules) and Rachel Oates. I love learning, have studied religion, the paranormal, and supernatural claims for over 2 decades, and in the last seven years, I’ve developed an insatiable thirst for knowledge – particularly science-based education. I love humanity and want to see it progress, so I fight for education and human rights, every chance I get. I’m not afraid to question the status quo, but try to do it with tongue-in-cheek humor, because life is too short to live it angry.

I’m also an international public speaker and travel extensively.  If you’d like me to speak at your event, shoot me an email here: https://holykoolaid.com/contact.

You can be free. Dare to be curious but don’t drink the Koolaid.
