First up, what does the selection of Sarah Palin for the Republican presidential ticket mean for the cause of secular government in America? (Spoiler Alert: It won’t be good.)
Next, we offer a wrap-up of the extremely successful Skeptics Track at this year’s Dragon*Con.Â If you were in attendance, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know what a fantastic job Track Director Derek Colanduno did.
Plus: A special, super-secret guest panelist joins us for the first (and hopefully not the last) time!
A call for listener input! We’re thinking of doing a show about the challenges atheists face in relationships, particularly in families with a mix of atheists and believers.Â Send your stories to email@example.com (attach voice files in mp3 or wav format).Â If you don’t know how to make a voice file, we can offer some assistance.Â No deadline, but the sooner the better.
