Our plans as we prepare to depart.
We give you a preview of the Reason Rally, and the American Atheists Convention in Washington, D. C. Our guests include David Silverman, Greta Christina, Nate Phelps, Sarah Morehead, and Mandisa Lateefah Thomas.
We’ll have daily episodes of the best of the Reason Rally and the Convention, with lots of interviews.
Come LAF with us!
Reason Rally Afterparty:
Today we speak with a man whose love for his friends started a chain of events that led him away from religion, and into reason. Robert Parham has a butter-smooth southern accent, and a mellow delivery that belies the heartbreak in his story.
We noticed some audio glitches on this file. If you downloaded it and it sounds glitchy, re-download it. It’s fixed now.
We talked with Vyckie Garrison with No Longer Quivering earlier, but couldn’t share everything she said. Today, we finish the conversation. The last time we talked mostly about the movement and what it was. Now, we talk about Vyckie herself, and her journey’s after quivering.
Al Stefanelli joins us for an all out hoot of a show. We’ll discuss his Bapticostal roots, to his days frightening off “prayer warriors” in the grocery store. Al is the Georgia State Director for American Atheists, and one of the funniest guys you’ll ever meet.
Jerry DeWitt is the new executive director of Recovering From Religion, and he joins us for a wide-open discussion of the process of leaving faith and finding a way to make a life of reason work for you.
Guy P. Harrison is an author, world traveler, and atheist freethinker. He joins us for a discussion of “50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God,” and “50 Popular Beliefs That People Think Are True.” It’s an hour of atheism and skepticism from a the worldview of a person who has had these conversations with thousands of people across the globe.
A new book will be out soon that will change the way you look at sex and your own sexuality. It’s called “Sex and God” and in this episode we talk with author Dr. Darrel Ray about some of the most interesting parts of the book.
