Helped me

I found this show when I realized I was an atheist. The humor and thoughtful commentary really helped me a lot. Thanks for the great show!

Love it!

Always great to listen to this show always look forward to the next episode! I only wish they would be longer!

If the Id had a podcast...

While I’m an atheist, some podcasts are just impossible to listen to. “You don’t have to be a racist to benefit from white privilege but you do have to be a racist to deny that you do” was the unsubscribe moment for me. This is just a collection of angry impotent rage-full millennials unable to do anything but rant and whine. What passes for comedy or insight is just low brow pseudo wit and nothing but another permutation of wokeism.
