The Angry Atheist Podcast, With Special Guest: Me

Today Daniel Fincke of Camels With Hammers introduced me to Reap Paden, of ReapSowRadio and The Angry Atheist. With about 15 minutes advanced notice, I was suddenly on the air being interviewed.If you listen past my uhs and y'knows, we have a fairly wide-ranging and — I think — interesting discussion. Reap's a good interviewer, and someone I'm glad I've met at last. I enjoyed the experience so much, it felt like we talked for only about 15 minutes.Worth a listen: … [Read more...]
