November 10, 2007 – “Letting Go of God”
Another good interview with Julia Sweeney; this time concerning the upcoming movie made from her show “Letting Go of God“.
I neglected to mention the two episodes in the archive in which you can learn more about the hosts. Two of the earliest episodes feature one of the co-hosts interviewing the other. Both are memorable. One is Losing Faith in Faith in which we hear more about the history of the former pastor Dan Barker. The other is Religion’s Harm to Women and the history of Annie Laurie Gaylor. If I had to pick my favorite of the two, Ms. Gaylor is a more interesting interview subject (sorry Dan) although there is much to learn from Dan’s trip from believer to non-believer.
2006 Archive episode.
November 11, 2006 – Physician-Assisted Suicide
Physician-Assisted Suicide is an episode that also struck a chord with me. An interview with Betty Rollin concerning Oregon’s physician assisted suicide law. If you don’t have a say in how your life ends, whose life is it anyway? Betty Rollin’s mother was dying, and thusly she has a very strong opinion on the subject herself. Author of “First You Cry” and “Final Wishes”; if you’ve ever had a loved one suffering from a long term terminal illness, then you’ll probably have an interest in this episode.
Editor’s note: Freethought Radio compilation posts. I’m not going to bother doing much to these. I will remove extraneous old links to my blogspot articles, but I have not checked links that go other places including the links to the podcast episodes themselves. I bought the Letting Go of God audiobook because of Julia Sweeney’s appearance on this program. This purchase is why I have an Audible account today.
