Why There Is No God with Armin Navabi


One of my favorite things about running a podcast is the great people you can meet. I consider the folks from the Irreverent Skeptics podcast to be friends; I’ve talked briefly to Ross from Skeptically Challenged and Bobby from No Religion Required. I’ve been in studio with Richard Carrier, and talked on Skype with Michael Sherlock and Randy Tyson. I’m not just name dropping, I’m incredibly thrilled to meet and talk to all of these people. They’re great people and great critical thinkers.  In the first episode of the year I was very happy to meet another great person. Armin Navabi of the Atheist Republic group and facebook page, atheist author, and ex-muslim skyped in with me, Mike, Lana, and Rene for a great talk about his new book, some new projects for the Atheist Republic and criticizing Islam.

One of the ads I threw in there was by a team of comedy writers who are skeptics and are helping to promote science and skepticism through humor. They call themselves Shut Up Infinity and also have a video called Shoot For The Moon. You should check it out.
