Joe was unavailable this week, so the Seethin’ Heathen is flying solo this episode! First, I recognize some Twitter love we got from our awesome fans. I then talk about getting to have dinner with Neil Carter and the guys from the Everyone’s Agnostic Podcast, as well as Joe, Tucker, and I seeing him speak. Hijinks then ensue as we all three get drunk and act like complete idiots at two establishments. Great fun!
I then get serious with the new UTBB News Roundup, where I briefly talk about the Charleston shootings and also the issue of taking the Confederate flag off of public grounds, not to mention the irony of “Christian” politicians caring suddenly about the divisive nature of the flag, when they used that very same religion to justify the slavery it came to represent in the first place. I then play local podcaster and friend of the show Tucker Drake’s hilarious new promo for his podcast, Atheist in the Trailer Park. If this promo doesn’t make you want to listen to the show, I don’t know what will!
For the interview, we have atheist author and illustrator Courtney Lynn. She writes and illustrates books for children including It Is OK To Be A Godless Me, Sketti Tales, I’m An Atheist And That’s OK, and I’m A Little Thinker. We talk about her books; her path to atheism; her son; her experience with religion; as well as many other topics. Courtney is as straightforward a person as you will ever speak to, and she certainly was not afraid to express her thoughts on some fairly controversial topics. I know y’all will enjoy listening to this interview as much as I enjoyed conducting it!
