"The Rap Guide to Religion" Baba Brinkman on Atheists Talk #335, November 1, 2015

Atheists Talk is proud to welcome Baba Brinkman to the show this Sunday, November 1st, 2015. We will be speaking with Baba about his newest music album, The Rap Guide to Religion. From his website:

Why do most humans believe in a higher power? What are those beliefs good for? And once they are gone, what can replace them? Fresh from a 5-star run at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a six month off-Broadway run, this groundbreaking new work explores the various ways and means by which religion evolves in our species, leaving audiences with a new appreciation of religion, and its critics. It’s time to eff with the ineffable.

Baba Brinkman is a Canadian rap artist, writer and actor. He blends his love of the arts and academia to produce intelligent criticisms of religious dogma and celebrations of science.

Baba Brinkman earned a Master of Arts in Medieval and Renaissance English Literature and he studied human evolution and primatology with the orangutan researcher Biruté Galdikas. His thesis compared modern Hip hop freestyle battling with The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer.

We hope you can join us for this Sunday's show.

"Intersectional Atheism" Maddy Love on Atheists Talk #334, October 25, 2015

Last February Atheists Talk celebrated its 300th episode by jamming the studio full of radio hosts. This Sunday Maddy Love sits down with Brianne Bilyeu to continue that celebration by sharing clips of some past guests and discussing how the Minnesota Atheists Public Policy Positions help keep the show relevant regardless of whatever the current religious entanglements happen to be.

Atheists Talk doesn’t settle for simply not believing in deities of any type, but believes in discussing and taking on issues across a wide variety of secular humanism issues where they intersect with atheism and the battle to untangle church from the issues of state.

"Carl Sagan Day 2015" Travis Peterson on Atheists Talk #333, October 18, 2015

Carl Sagan was an accomplished astronomer and cosmologist, and is well-known and loved for his work as a science popularizer and communicator. He contributed to the body of work that explains the greenhouse effect and its role in the temperature of Venus. He helped lend credibility to the search for extraterrestrial life, and produced work with CETI - Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence.

Dr. Sagan was the presenter and co-writer of the inspirational television series, Cosmos. He was a skeptic and educator of critical thinking, and his 1995 book The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark has helped laypeople to gain a greater understanding of the scientific method and rational inquiry.

November 14th is Carl Sagan Day and to celebrate we'll discuss Carl Sagan's contributions and achievements. Travis Peterson is an organizer for the Minnesota Skeptics and a fan of Carl Sagan's works and legacy. Join us on Sunday to talk about space, critical thought, Cosmos, Contact and "bilions and billions" of other topics (okay, not quite that many).

"Right to Know" Amanda Knief on Atheists Talk Radio #332, October 11, 2015

In the United States many citizens have access to regulated and safe healthcare (though expensive!). Unfortunately, more and more Americans are finding their access to vital and available services limited by the religious beliefs of their providers. We may ostensibly live in a secular society, but we're finding that our healthcare system is become less and less so. From AtheistVoter.org:

Today, nearly 1 in 6 Americans is treated by a health care provider who is affiliated with more than 645 Catholic hospitals in the United States, according to the Catholic Health Association of the United States. All Catholic health care providers are encouraged to abide by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Ethical and Religious Directives, which affects the types and direction of treatment that men and women receive for everything from birth control to vasectomies to cancer to end-of-life care.

American Atheists is working to secure a legal right for patients to know what limits are being placed on us by our providers. By introducing the Model Patient's Right to Know Act, they are hoping to create an environment in which we might be able to better understand our options when we're choosing healthcare. From the American Atheist press release of the proposed legislation:

The proposed legislation would require health care providers to simply provide a list of services they will not perform for religious reason to patients, potential patients, health insurers, and state and federal grant or subsidy programs. The health care providers and insurance issues would them be requied to make that information available online for potential patients.

Join us this Sunday as we speak with Amanda Knief, National Legal and Public Policy director of American Atheists and author of the Model Patient's Right to Know Act.
