It’s the first of our two fall fundraiser shows done live in the WRFI studio. On today’s show I interview “Miss Zoologist,” founder of the Ithaca Atheist Meetup, the first and perhaps the best atheist meetup in the known universe and then I talk with Kate-Lyn Capelli, Cornell junior and co-founder of Pastafarians of Cornell. What is Pastafarianism (otherwise known as the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster), what are its origins and why does the Cornell student body need such a group? On Freethought Radio, the radio show of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Barker tell us about football baptisms, proselytizing teachers, Fox & Friends lecturing FFRF on “culture of the South,” and USA Today acknowledging FFRF’s accomplishments. Then they talk with John Figdor, Humanist Chaplain at Stanford University, about his new book Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart: Rewriting the Ten Commandments for the Twenty-First Century.
