Back in the early days of Skype, we spoke with YouTuber Stephen James, who did an especially good take down of the Christian YouTube sensation of that day.

We were so excited to finally get to do a trans-Atlantic (or “across the pond”) interview with our friend, Bethany Turner! We learned a bunch and had an awful lot of fun.

Content Note/Trigger Warning: We discuss sexual assault, emotional abuse, bullying, PTSD, and suicidal thoughts.

We figured we should probably talk frankly about our mental health and life challenges that led us to go on podcast hiatus. Deanna Joy discusses a lot of the things she has been through in recent years in detail, hence the CN/TW.

Secular Soup Crossover – Episode 78

Here it is: Our first official announcement of our return to podcasting. This special crossover episode was one of the most fun we’ve ever done. I didn’t think we could alternately laugh so much and have serious conversation all in the same session. We’re eternally grateful to Amy with a Y and Ami with an I of The Secular Soup Podcast for doing this with us!

Sweet Summer Children With PZ Myers – Episode 77

Play

Way back in 2013-ish we had the good fortune of speaking with PZ Myers in our studio in Seattle. Even back then, we thought maybe we were being a little too cynical about the direction of the atheist movement but when we look back now, I feel like we were still so innocent. Such a great conversation.
