Podcast re 50 Voices of Disbelief

You can find the podcast of my radio interview, focused mainly on 50 Voices of Disbelief (let's link to the Kindle edition for a change), with Minnesota Atheists here.

Thanks to all involved, including Stephanie Zvan, Carl Hancock, and Rachel Reiva. Once again, it was an enjoyable interview for me - hope y'all enjoy it as well.

From the site:
50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists presents a unique and thought-provoking collection of original essays that address personal disbelief in a higher power. Drawn from an international cast of professionals in the fields of academia, science, literature, media and politics, contributors offer carefully considered statements of why they reject the idea of a deity governing the universe and human affairs. Several essays also address such issues as the social role of religion and its alternatives. The responses feature a stunning diversity of viewpoints and tone, ranging from rigorous philosophical arguments to highly personal — at times even whimsical — accounts of how each of these notable thinkers have come to reject religion in their lives. Whether you're a believer or not, 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists offers an intellectually stimulating journey into the possibilities for rational and reasonable people everywhere to live without the crutch of religion.

Join editor Russell Blackford as we discuss the book and why is was needed.
