A great show!

I really enjoy listening to the show. A mixture of humor and information that keeps me coming back. Thanks for the show!

Great Show! I have recommended this to friends

Each week the hosts go through current events both locally and world wide that impact atheists. Their open and honest discussions are refreshing. I listen each week!
