Encore release May 29, 2017.

 

We interview Matthew Bowman; scholar, historian, and author of The Mormon People: The Making of an American Faith (hardcover or Kindle). (Oh, and he's a real-live Mormon, which makes for very interesting conversation.) Matthew also contributes to the Peculiar People blog at Patheos.com/blogs/PeculiarPeople.

David wraps-up his report on the recent Reason Rally on the National Mall.

John reports on Richard Dawkins' recent appearance in metro Atlanta for a public lecture and private fundraiser.

Also:

David is "retiring" from the Secular World Podcast after four-plus years of exemplary service.

John and Allison will be in London and Edinburgh over the next couple of weeks. Friend of the show and fellow podcast Sean Slater has kindly offered to show us around Edinburgh for a day. The American Freethought Podcast will be back in late April. Meanwhile, check out Sean's occasional Scot's History Podcast at http://scotshistory.wordpress.com.

The long-defunct St. Louis band Body Found (whose music is featured in the theme song for this podcast) are now on iTunes. Download the 12-song alt-rock goodness of "Body Found Studio" for only $9.99.
