My podcast with Hemant Mehta

Hemant Mehta, the “Friendly Atheist“, waylaid me during the American Humanist Association meetings (he lives in “Chicagoland”) and asked me to do a podcast with him. I readily agreed, as he’s a nice guy, and the podcast, in which I was co-interviewed by Hemant and Jessica Bluemke, was just posted. You can find it by clicking on the screenshot. As always, I can’t bear to listen to these things, but I do remember I made up a Dr. Seuss-like poem on the spot about Regressive Leftism. I don’t know if it made the final cut.

    Good to see you’re getting use of those hirsute forearms Robin Williams bequeathed you, Jerry.🙂

        Even if it was a complement? 😉

        I tend to be a bit hirsute in the extremities, too, so no offense intended!

    Well, I enjoyed it. And yes, your Dr Seuss bit made the cut!🙂

      Yes, right around 39:45

      There’s a man with bad things to say,
      We won’t let him speak today.

      Great podcast PCC(E)

    I’m listening, and I think it’s your best, yet. You sound more relaxed, making you more down to earth, while at the same time presenting reasonable thoughts and conclusions succinctly, clearly, and in a way anyone should be able to appreciate, even if he/she dropped out of school in high school. I hope this interview goes viral and reaches everyone. It should certainly shake up various believers.

      A kitchy little thought (mine) about free speech:

      Fairness requires a fair hearing, and a fair hearing starts with open ears.

    Good discussion.

    Now, I’m already waiting for your next book. (Not the children’s one.)

    A wide ranging interview. I rather like your voice, btw. Also your Dr. Seussian line worked perfectly.
