We interview Danny Zepeda, a skeptical blogger living in Morelia, a city in central Mexico.Â He talks about the state of freethought South of the Border, the prevalence of superstition and alt-medicine quackery in Mexican society, and the challenges of raising children to be critical thinkers.Â Visit Danny’s Spanish-language blog Un PapÃ¡ EscÃ©ptico (A Skeptical Papa) at papaesceptico.wordpress.com.Â If you can’t read Spanish, try pasting the URL into the Babel Fish text translation tool: the results are sometimes a bit iffy but readable.
Announcements – We encourage you to leave feedback at AmericanFreethought.com.Â We have a Yahoo Group, a Facebook page, an Atheist Nexus page, a Think Atheist page (NEW!), and a Twitter feed.Â Also, if you pick us up via iTunes, please take a moment to leave feedback.
