My Interview With "Whatever Whatever Amen"

A week and a half ago I had a blast being interviewed by Amy Childs (pictured above) for her podcast Whatever Whatever Amen. You can listen to our conversation here. Below is her description of our conversation topics:

Freethought blogger and philosophy professor Dan Fincke talks with me today about all kinds of stuff, like…How attending a very religious college helped him become an atheist (with help from Nietzsche); how his passion to further public discussion keeps him going; his thoughts about happiness and fulfilling human potential; the importance of building community that is based on common rational values, the process of “coming out” as an atheist; religious PTSD; struggle and growth; “A” week (soon!) and the Reason Rally (very very soon!)

(No wonder Dan was worried I wasn’t going to be able to edit this   down to a half hour show….)

 

Our closing musical treat comes to us from Australia – “Saved” by Shelley Segal is the hit single from her latest CD An Atheist Album.  You can go buy her record and/or you can hear her perform at the aforementioned Reason Rally next week.  So what are you waiting for? Tally ho!

Special thanks to Shelley for letting us use the song.
