Encore release June 30, 2017.

We interview humanist and activist Leo Igwe on his research into witchcraft accusations in rural Ghana. Belief in witchcraft is widespread in Africa, and it's common for people to make false accusations in order to get rid of handicapped children, the elderly, romantic rivals, and other problematic persons. You can support Leo's research by contributing through the Foundation Beyond Belief's Pathfinders Project.

Plus: A Christian listener challenges us to explain the seeming contradiction between inherent homosexuality and evolution by natural selection.
