SkepSun #15 (12_02_2012)

This week on Freethought Radio find out why Fox News “can’t stand the Freedom From Religion Foundation.” This week Annie Laurie and Dan cover a sleigh-load of state/church complaints: a federal decision allowing FFRF’s Montana shrine case to continue, removal of a cross from a Kansas city seal, coverage of our IRS lawsuit over church politicking, and more. Then they  talk with “Friendly Atheist” blogger Hemant Mehta about his new book, The Young Atheists Survival Guide: Helping Secular Students Thrive.  In hour two of the show we hear Chris Mooney interviews one of the nation’s foremost skeptics, Steven Novella. He’s a neurologist at Yale University, a tireless blogger on behalf of science-based medicine and host of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast.  In between we’ll hear Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist and director of the Hayden Planetarium, on how whether there’s a purpose to the universe and what to do and think when such proves hard to find.  We’ll also hear Brian Dunning examine the usefulness of so-called “cleansing” diets.  Next week a live show/fundraiser with guests from the WRFI studios, so make sure to tune in between 8 and 11 (and tell your friends to do the same)!
