    So what will the show be now?

    - Each episode will be single topic and shorter. Probably 20 - 30 minutes.

    - Some will be a ‘Dustin’ off the Degree' even though I won’t call it that any more. I also plan to increase the rigor on these.

    - Some will be discussions of specific big stories in the news.

    - Some will be discussions of concerning trends in the news.

    - Some will be discussions of random topics of interest to atheists, humanists, and/or skeptics.

    - Some will be interviews.

Awesome

Love this podcast. Like the people who get invited to come on ( mostly Mikey). Even being an atheist I still like learning about other religions and how its practiced. And honestly I’m glad that Wesley is gone. He was just a bump on a log kind of guy.

Dawkins

Remember, this old guy had a stroke about two years ago.

Needs improvements

I like the content they put out and the guest however it’s better when his better half is on or he has someone to interact with. Also when he is just giving what’s in the news stuff he tends to run the stories together without letting the listeners know he has switched to another story so you have to rewind sometimes to check or you get really confused.
