"An Atheist Album" Shelley Segal on Atheists Talk #153, Sunday, February 5th, 2012

This Sunday, February 5th, Australian singer and songwriter Shelley Segal joins Atheists Talk. We'll hear some songs from her new release, An Atheist Album, and learn about her upcoming concerts at the Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne and in New Orleans for the Annual American Humanists Conference. We'll discuss Shelley's passion for secular activism and find out what's next for this talented, upcoming artist.

More about Shelley from her website: 

Over the last few years, Shelley has become involved in the secular movement and it is a cause that she sees as indispensable. In response to her views, this year Shelley has recorded and released, ‘An Atheist Album.’ The seven songs on the album are her thoughts on religion and related themes, through the prism of her secular humanism. 

Shelley’s musical style is influenced by commercial, folk, jazz, blues and rock genres. As a songwriter, Shelley’s music is often biographical and story-telling in nature.

We hope you can join us this weekend for a secular start to your Sunday morning!

"Denying Science" John Grant on Atheists Talk #152, January 29th, 2012

John Grant  joins Atheists Talk radio to speak with us about his newly published book, Denying Science: Conspiracy Theories, Media Distortions and the War Against Reality.

From his website:

What motivates people to deny science? In some cases the answer is ignorance and lack of the ability to think critically: scientific answers can be complicated and nuanced and require some education to understand, while the answers of gurus and quacks seem simpler . . . and thus, to use Stephen Colbert's term, more "truthy." Far more sinister are the active campaigns mounted, through "think tanks" and fake grassroots organizations, by ideological and commercial entities in a deliberate and often far too successful attempt to deceive the public – from fundamentalists promoting Intelligent Design Creationism to the tobacco giants muddling the science on the health effects of smoking to the fossil-fuel corporations claiming climate change is a hoax. Grant surveys these and a gamut of other denials of established science raised by various panics, urban legends and deliberate distortions amid a general climate of misinformation.

Women in Secularism Conference, Melody Hensley on Atheists Talk #150, Sunday, January 15, 2012

2011 was an interesting year for women in the secularism movement. We were more visible than we've ever been, both in the U.S. and across the world. At the same time, a simple request to respect women's wishes with regard to being hit on at atheist events provoked months of discussion, both positive and very, very negative.

In the middle of all of this, the Center for Inquiry announced that they would be hosting the first Women in Secularism conference May 18-20 of this year in Washington, DC. The list of speakers is diverse and highly accomplished. The reaction to the announcement was...varied.

This conference is the brainchild of the Executive Director of the DC branch of the Center for Inquiry, Melody Hensley. Join us this Sunday as we discuss with Melody the impetus for the conference, the contributions of women to the secularism movement, and what attendees can expect from the conference.
