Awesome Podcast

This is simply a great podcast and I miss it dearly. I'm just wrapping up listening to the entire run (I started listening about a year before they ended the run, so most of them were new to me, but the last dozen or so were relistens) and I'm impressed with the way they hold up (some of the references to politics or the news of the day are dated now, and some evoke some wistfulness for more naive times). The banter of the Doubtcasters is usually quite entertaining. They don't pull any punches with their philosophical analyses, and I frequently had to relisten to some arguments in order to be sure I understood all the steps being taken. The only problem I ever had was when I first started listening to them and I didn't know what they were all about. I put them on while driving and almost bored my poor wife to tears as they went through the Euthyphro Dilemma. Of course, now that I'm wrapping up the series again, I feel bereft of another podcast this good to listen to.

Best Atheist Podcast.

I was a young Christian questioning my faith, and this even-handed podcast about skepticism, philosophy, and science honestly changed my life.

I miss these guys. I listen to the archives all the time and learn something new regularly, even though I've listened to every episode multiple times. Please start recording again!

Sorely Missed

This podcast is worth listening too despite it's haitus. The respectful engagement with the issues, and the perspectives from philosophy, psycology, science and common sense is a worlderful amalgam.

Thanks you guys for all your work on this!
