Reed Braden has nominated me for Nullifidian’s Atheist Thirteen meme, and since it’s been a long while since I’ve participated in one, how can I refuse? If you want to play too, just copy the questions below, and nominate three bloggers who you would like to participate. Read the rest of this entry »

Reed Braden has a podcast

17 02 2008

It has been remiss of me not to have linked sooner to Reed Braden‘s podcast Two Smokin’ Hot Freethinkers, especially as Reed plugs Five Public Opinions at the end of the second episode! (Sorry, Reed: I’ve had a huge backlog of podcasts to get through, and I only got to Episode 2 of yours today.) Reed and his co-host Katie take a–shall we say–light-hearted approach to atheism and a variety of other topics, punctuated with some great (if sometimes) obscure choices of music.

You can also catch Reed on the theist/atheist collaborative podcast Apologia, in which he appears as the (self-described) “token gay” on an episode dealing with Christianity and homosexuality, as well as on an episode of the American Atheists podcast Atheist Viewpoint.

(Who is Reed Braden? You can read his story here.)

Another good non-theist podcast goes silent . . .

Truth-Driven Thinking, the podcast of skeptical author Steven Gibson, has come to an end. Gibson, a former Christian, described his podcast as a continuing journey away from emotion-driven thinking, and while it did have the aura of the “self-help/motivation” section about it, and at times erred just a little on the side of self-indulgence, the show regularly featured fantastic interviews canvassing a range of topics and perspectives. It will be missed.

On the plus side, a couple of newer podcasts worth checking out include:
The Good Atheist
Path of Reason

and let us not forget the irrepressible Reed Braden!
