ktnf_am_950.jpgWe are requesting a financial contribution to the Minnesota Atheists Radio Fund to keep this program on the air and in Podcast for the rest of 2011.  To date, we have produced 114 programs with a variety of perspectives on issues of importance to atheists and the public at large.  The reason we produce this program is simple:  if we, as atheists, do not control our message to the general public,  no one else will speak for us.  The program covers atheism, science, state church separation, Humanism and other related topics.  We present atheists’ views to the public in a manner that is respectful, informative and diverse.
 

This program costs $5,320.00 every six months. We sell some ads, but most of our costs are covered by supporter donations.  The program is broadcast live on AM950 KTNF, but most of our listeners follow our podcasts.  Of the 114 programs our number one download was the program broadcast from the Minnesota State Fair, “All About Atheism,” that had over 21,000 downloads.  Next most downloaded was the very first program we did, with Richard Dawkins, at 13,000, followed by “Dialogue with a Christian” with over 10,000.  After that, there are seven programs with over 7,000, ten over 6,000 and 15 over 5,000. Within two to three weeks of production, every program has between 1,000 to 2,000 downloads.  

The roll call of guests includes atheists Richard Dawkins and Dr. Hector Avalos; Foxhole Atheists; scientists Neil deGrasse Tyson, PZ Myers, Ira Flatow, Greg Laden; science artists Lynn Fellman and Glendon Mellow; separation of state and church advocates Theresa Nelson from ACLU, Americans United staffers Rob Boston and Sandhya Bathija, and Monica Meyer from Outreach Minnesota.  Each of our programs focuses on a person, issue or event of interest to atheists.  Volunteers handle all aspects of Atheists Talk Radio. Our producers, interviewers and guests appear as a public service.


We are asking your help to keep this programming on the air.  Any donation amount is appreciated. You can print this out and mail it along with your donation to our listed address below or go online to: http://mnatheists.org/component/option,com_civicrm/Itemid,76/
