Susan Jacoby: Humanist Champion

love Susan Jacoby: I think she’s one of the finest advocates for Humanism on the planet today. She has an infectious passion for freethought which fills people with excitement and brings the Humanist vision alive. In this NPR interview with Tom Ashbrook she conveys the excitement and freshness of Robert Ingersoll’s thought like no one else – you can just hear Tom Ashbrook getting carried away and excited by Humanist ideals in the course of the discussion. It makes my heart beat faster and  my eyes shine to think that there is someone with such conviction and integrity fighting our corner. I love her. She’s amazing. She’s my champion. I wish she was invited to more campuses and spoke more often on the radio. I could listen to her for hours.

Buy her new book, The Great Agnostic. Buy all her booksFreethinkers changed my life.
