Great stuff...

...but I miss the older hosts. With only Denis left it’s not as good. Denis is great, the replacements....

Great conversation

This is my first time listening to the Non Prophets and I really enjoyed it. I especially liked the conversational style. Sometimes I feel isolated as an atheist and am always concerned about expressing my views in public. So listening to like minded non believers is very refreshing.

Very interesting

I love and relisten to this podcast because there's frequent conversation about how atheist, skepticism, and rationalism interact with real life issues. The normal hosts are also very funny.
