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 currently on the board of the Faithless Forum Conference (the first-ever atheist/skeptic YouTube conference).

I also co-host The Here and How Podcast with Stephen Woodford (Rationality Rules) and Rachel Oates. I love learning, have studied religion 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 a 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.
