Episode 43 - Author Reba Riley "Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome"

Author Reba Riley was raised charismatic evangelical, a graduate of the Focus on the Family Institute, comforted by the safety and certainty of living without doubts.  Then the questions came and eventually the bottom fell out and, like many of us, Reba had to rediscover herself and reality. She visits over 30 different religious experiences in a pilgrimage ala Eat Pray Love.  

Her book, “Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome: a Memoir of Humor and Healing in 30 Religions,” is that story. 

Taped on April 18th, 2015. Co-hosts Cass Midgley & Bob Pondillo

Episode 42 - Tracey Moody

Guest: Blogger and atheist activist Tracey Moody. Very candid interview. Tracey was never a believer. Part of Tracey’s freedom and fearlessness comes from never having been trained under theism. Instead Tracey looked to science for answers and meaning. Tracey’s now famous question at the Creation Debate b/w Ken Ham and Bill Nye was, “What, if anything, would ever you change your mind?” It’s a good question for all of us. This interview was taped on April 13th, 2015.

Episode 41 - Geoff Little, Beer & Hymns

Guest: Geoff Little.  Like all interviews, this is a snapshot in time of a personal journey.  Geoff is the son of the head of the Christian Broadcasting Network, second only to Pat Robertson himself.  Geoff is in that rock-and-a-hard-place space of identifying as Christian but embarrassed by it every day.  But, since we could easily make a case that Jesus would be embarrassed by today’s Christianity, it begs the question, is Geoff more or less of a Christian?  This is where SO many Americans are today—wanting to hang onto Jesus but disgusted by what poses as Christianity today.  You can hear the tension in his words, of not wanting to throw Christianity under the bus while being brutally honest with himself about what he sees. 

 Geoff is the founder of the Beer and Hymns movement in Nashville.  In fact, there’s one coming up Thursday, April 30th, 7:30pm at Mercy Lounge in Nashville.  $5 in advance/$8 at the door, and I think that includes a ticket for one beer.  Geoff experiments with stand-up comedy and story-telling.  You can YouTube him and get a feel for his sensibilities.  He’s one of my best friends in middle Tennessee.  I think you’re gonna like him.  We taped this show on April 5th, 2015 in my backyard.  Geoff provided the beer.  

Bob & I will be at ReAsonCon 2015 in Hickory NC April 25th.  Hope to see you there. Subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, TuneIn and most podcast platforms.  If you’re feeling grateful for our podcast, Patreon.com is like a tip jar for our work.

Episode 40 - Atheist Debater Justin Schieber

Atheist debater Justin Schieber is a young, brilliant self-taught student of Philosophy and Religion.  You can find his debates on YouTube.  Justin is a thinker who uses debate to invigorate the conversation, not end it; to expand our knowledge and enhance our understanding of the "other" perspective.  This episode is an intellectual conversation. It is followable and everyone should be able to get something out of it.  

We taped this show on March 27th, 2015 on a field recorder so its not our regular standard of quality and the memory card filled up after about an hour so it ends rather abruptly.  When we realized what happened we just did the closer questions on Justin’s iPhone and wrapped it up.
