Everyone's Agnostic Podcast
Cass & Bob interview people you don't know about a subject no one wants to talk about--losing faith in the supernatural.
Episode 82 John Draper

Cass and Bob interview John Draper, author of “A Danger to God Himself.” John is a former evangelical who decided to write a novel from the perspective of two Mormon missionaries. One Amazon reviewer wrote, “This book is a mild reminder that questioning things is natural for people whose mind is not totally blinded by the dogmas they’re living within.” And another wrote,” John Draper has constructed a cast of fascinating characters who each have interesting story-arcs in their own right…A Danger to God Himself is funny and tragic in turns, and is an unusual twist on the Mormon missionary narrative.”

Episode 81 Kristi Kiger

Cass and Dr. Bob converse with Kristi Kiger. Kristi is one of those that doesn’t have a book or a blog, she’s a nurse with a big heart for people broken on the wheels of life and an avid social justice worker. Kristi only left Christianity 6 months ago so the feelings are still pretty fresh. Like many good-hearted people, she found Christianity attractive as a vehicle by which she could make the world a better place. It was not shoved down her throat as a child; she chose it as a young adult through high school and college and worked 10 years for a Christian non-profit outreach in Washington DC. But people who enter religion in pursuit of love and justice will often find that pursuit hitting the wall of conditional love and justice for which the Christian church is infamous.

Episode 80 - Cass' Kids

Episode 80 of the Everyone’s Agnostic podcast, Special Edition: ex-pastor Cass Midgley’s four children. They are all young adults now but the oldest was 13 when Cass left the town in Oklahoma where he was an evangelical pastor and began to deconstruct his faith of 39 years. Starting in 2006, he slowly became an atheist. How was the transition for these PKs? How are they fairing now? Did any of them stay Christian?
