Sarah has provided several secular invocations before local governing bodies and community events.  While believing invocations to be unnecessary altogether, if secular voices are not included, then all invocations would be specifically Christian and not representative of the diversity of constituencies.

Humanist Celebrant

Sarah is an endorsed Humanist celebrant with The Humanist Society.  Humanist celebrants conduct humanist, nonreligious, and interreligious weddings, commitment/same-sex unions, memorials, baby namings, and other life cycle ceremonies.

The Humanist Society

Sarah is the Producer/Host of “Humanist Trek”, a Star Trek podcast about the humanism in Star Trek.  Each week Sarah & Co-Host Allie Ashmead (GO Humanity) review an episode of Star Trek and discuss the humanist themes and big questions.


SarahTalk is a podcast started in 2015 to document Sarah’s gender transition journey.  Over time the show became more politically charged as religious opposition to GSRM rights increased. 


This is an excellent show! These two feel like they're family (and not the kind that you skip over when sending out holiday invites!). There is always excellent conversation and I am grateful that real issues are being discussed. I love SarahTalk so much! Everyone should give them a listen!
Funny and to the point on justice, human rights, equality, politics, religion, and Florida Man!
Excellent show! wonderful conversation from folks I know I'd be best friends with because they both have such big hearts great sense' of humor and awesome insights into politics! I highly recommend this show to everyone I know!
