"First Amendment Journalism", Jamila Bey on Atheists Talk #254, January 26, 2014

Jamila Bey is familiar to atheists as a charismatic, entertaining, and insightful speaker on the social and political issues that face atheists, and particularly atheists of color. Professionally, she's a journalist with a long career in both old and new media. She's been a beat reporter and freelance writer. She spent ten years as an editor and producer for National Public Radio. And for the past several years, she's hosted the Sex Politics, and Religion Hour (SPAR with Jamila Bey) on Voice of Russia radio.

Now she's looking to do something different. She's been running an Indigogo campaign to fund a year-long series of reports on the challenges our First Amendment faces across the country.

Join us this Sunday as we talk to Jamila Bey about her work and why atheists and other underrepresented groups need an independent media.

Geeks Without God on Atheists Talk #253, January 19th, 2014

Atheism is becoming easier to talk about; we're meeting more people who identify as atheist, we're forming suppport groups via social media, we're seeing more positive representations of atheism and nonbelief in popular media. And because we're talking about atheism more, we're beginning to notice atheism intersecting with other areas of our culture. Geeks Without God is a podcast with one foot in the atheist community and the other firmly planed in geekdom. The weekly podcast is hosted by three local comedians - Tim Wick, Molly Glover and Nick Glover. All three take part in local science fiction/fantasy conventions, the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and various comedic and acting groups in the Twin Cities. And of course, they're all raging atheists. 

The first Geeks Without God podcast went up on iTunes on July 9th, 2012. 80 episodes later, Geeks Without God has exploded in popularity and now enjoys an international following. The podcasts regularly feature local guests, they have appeared at numerous geek and skeptical conferences to do live recordings of the podcast, and they have run fundraising campaigns to support the secular summer camp, Camp Quest. In the show's one and a half year history, Tim, Nick and Molly have discussed comic books, leaving religion, glowing frogs, morality, Douglas Adams, Christian roleplaying games, sandwiches, separation of church and state, parenting, Pacific Rim and Ray Comfort. Among other topics.

We hope you will join us this Sunday when Tim Wick, Molly Glover and Nick Glover join Atheists Talk - live in the studio! - to discuss Geeks Without God.

"Refusing Atheist Money", Hemant Mehta on Atheists Talk #252, January 12, 2014

The end of the year is a traditional time for charitable giving and volunteering. Atheist and secular humanist groups have made great strides in the last few years on providing their members with opportunities to give both money and time as part of a community. Local community groups develop long-term relationships with community service organizations. Others choose organizations that meet specific needs at specific times. On top of that, Foundation Beyond Belief was formed in 2010 to channel and encourage humanist giving and volunteering.

However, because we are atheists, our help is not always wanted. Sometimes our checks are refused. Sometimes our helping hands are turned away. We're not always told why, but "faith" groups find themselves welcome where we're not.

Recently, Hemant Mehta of the Friendly Atheist blog found himself on the receiving end of two of these rejections. Funds raised by his readers were declined by a park board and library board. The library chair went so far as to call Hemant's blog "a hate group". Hemant is also familiar with this problem as part of the board of Foundation Beyond Belief. Join us this Sunday as Hemant talks to us about atheist giving, or at least attempted atheist giving.

"Daylight Atheism" Adam Lee on Atheists Talk #251, January 5th, 2014

Adam Lee's goal is to shine bright light into the dark crevices and shadowy doctrine of organized religions and superstitions. His blog, Daylight Atheism, is focused on giving atheists a voice in our society, as well as highlighting the role that secular humanism must play if we are to progress toward a brighter future for all of us.

Adam Lee is an award-winning writer, and his work has appeared in AlterNet, Salon, International Humanist and Ethical Union, Canadian Freethinker, Freethought Today, Free Inquiry, and Secular Future. He is the author of the fantasy novel, Dark Heart. He is on the speaker's bureau for the Secular Student Alliance and has given talks at major secular conferences across the country.

We hope you will join us on Atheists Talk this Sunday when we speak with Adam Lee about his most recent book, Daylight Atheism, a summation of many of his views related to religion, atheism and humanism.
