Episode 67 Gretta Vosper - Canadian Pastor, out atheist

Cass Midgley & Bob Pondillo talk with Gretta Vosper, pastor of West Hill United Church in Scarborough, Ontario. She’s also founder of the Canadian Centre for Progressive Christianity back in 2004. Over the last decade, she has written about the rejection of an interventionist god and the impervious idea that the Bible is the ultimate authority for all time and people and yet remained the pastor of a Christian church. You heard me right: an “out” non-theist pastor still in the pulpit.

Episode 61 Wayne Rumsby

Cass and Bob interview Canadian Wayne Rumsby. Wayne is a craftsman. His heart is enormous. He is so genuinely human. He and his wife are some of those unfortunate parents who’ve had to bury a child—a special needs child with a degenerative disease that was never diagnosed in his short 18 year life. Wayne’s heart for social justice survived his Christianity and today he holds out hope to be able to continue his work with people broken on the wheels of life by creating quality furniture in the retreat center he calls home.

Episode 60 Callie Wright

Welcome everyone to episode 60 of the Everyone’s Agnostic podcast. Cass Midgley and Dr. Bob Pondillo interview fellow atheist podcaster Callie Wright. This conversation is a course in transgender basics 101. Callie generously and gracefully accommodates our ignorance. Her patience with our ignorance is her way of making the world suck less for transgender people by helping cisgender people acquire empathy for their plight in a culture that is often hostile towards them. As is true of all marginalized peoples, it’s impossible to keep one’s bigotry towards them when you know one. Callie produces a podcast titled Gaytheist Manifesto. Look for it on all podcast platforms.

This conversation was taped on August 15th,  2015.
