I interview Dan Barker about his latest book Mere Morality. Dan is co-president (with wife Annie Laurie Gaylor) of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, and co-host with her of the weekly show Freethought Radio.

For ambitious readers, here are the other books mentioned during the course of the conversation:


Congratulations to NASA on placing the Osiris-Rex probe in orbit around the near-earth asteroid Bennu, and on the spectacular New Horizons flyby of the Kuiper Belt object Ultima Thule! Kudos also to the Chinese for Chang'e 4, the first-ever soft landing on the far side of the moon.

The Pew Research Center reports that the new 116th Congress is the most religiously diverse in history, with the influence of mainstream Christianity continuing to diminish. Among the freshmen legislators are Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the first Muslim women to the elected to the House of Representatives.
