As we look forward to 2009, we take a moment to review the success and progress of the American Freethought Podcast in 2008.Â What was our best episode?Â What could we have done better?
We also unveil a new contest forÂ our listeners withÂ an impressive stack ofÂ cool prizes.Â Tune in to find out how YOU could be the recipient of this treasure trove of nifty freethought-ish tchoch.
Finally, Dr. Eugenie Scott of the National Center for Science Education (NCSEweb.org) gets the last word on Ben Stein’s ridiculous “Evolution = Nazi Holocaust” documentary Expelled.Â This 5-minute segment of conversation was trimmed from our interview with her in episode #31 (in which we talked about the Texas BOE putting out-of-state creationists on the committee that reviews the science curriculum).Â It was intended for inclusion in ourÂ coverage of the Expelled DVD in episode #34, but…Â we forgot (okay, I forgot – David shares none of the blame!).Â Anyway, we thought it was worth hearing, even it we’re delivering it a tad late.
We now have a CafePress store!Â Buy cool American Freethought swag, including t-shirts and mugs.Â Sport your support for patriotism through rational thought!
A reminder that we post new material (news, commentary, links of interest) several times a week at AmericanFreethought.com.
