Cass Midgley and Marie D'Elephant talk with Emily. She is a former Evangelical Christian who struggled with a lot of doubts and crises of faith on her road to freedom in unbelief. Nowadays, she considers herself a former fundie or a shameless heathen; although, "atheist" is the title she uses most. She is in her early thirties, works in healthcare, and is currently going back to school to further her career. In the very small amount of free time she currently possesses, she likes to write fiction, daydream, and wander aimlessly through Target with an empty cart. She doesn't have a spouse or kids, but she does have a pet bunny that she spoils beyond all good sense. Emily tends towards being a hermit, but thankfully has great friends who occasionally persuade her to leave the house and do things like this podcast. We discuss things from faith healing (and is it your fault you weren't healed?) to healing through playful blasphemy of what once felt so direly serious.
