Born Again Atheist

Jess and hemmit remind me of my brother and I talking about politics and religion together. He’s the one that turned me on to this podcast. We were raised in the Christian church and both eventually found our way to atheism. I love getting to discuss the topics you cover with him. It’s been bonding and educational.

Also, I was agnostic before listening to your podcast and after a certain time, I switched to atheist. You converted me!!

all the love

Listening to Hemant and Jessica makes me feel like I'm hanging out with two very different but equally awesome friends. I love Hemant's lack of pop culture knowledge and Jessica's compassion. Hearing this pod every week helps me stay aware of things that I might not otherwise know about. I love Hemant's approach to atheism and his willingness to reach out to people that believe differently. And I love that Jess does cross stitch :D

hemant is worse than hitler

I’d give zero stars if I could you blasphemous idiot, your exactly like
those mentioned in Jude 10, “they blaspheme against all that they do not understand, and they are destroyed by, like unreasoning beasts, what they understand instinctively”. Maybe atheists are descended from animals
