The Thinking Atheist Podcast
Summary: A former Christian of 30 years, I've joined countless others in breaking the bonds of fear and superstition to live a truthful, fulfilled, exciting life. As a professional video producer, I create short-form videos designed to entertain, generate discussion, ask and answer questions, and generally blow some fresh air through the cobwebs.
This broadcast features various conversations with people who - for a variety of reasons - say they are not atheists. Some are simply averse to the label. Others declare that they are "spiritual." Still others are navigating a very personal (and very difficult) road out of religious belief. These are candid and compelling discussions about belief, spirituality, labels, and the search for truth.
