Minnesota Atheist Talk Radio aired for some time on Sunday Mornings, and developed a nation-wide audience and became one of the more respected atheist related radio show/podcasts in North America.
After a hiatus of several months, the show is back, ad a new and more convenient time slot, 8:00 Sunday Mornings on AM 950 KTNF. You will be able to listen to podcasts post-show on the Minnesota Atheist web site.
I’ve done a couple of these (most recently, this one on Missionaries) and plan to do one on human evolution later in the month with interviewer and artist Lynn Fellman.
The first show of the revised series will be Scott Lohman interviewing Robert Price on the book “The Case Against The Case For Christ: A New Testament Scholar Refutes the Reverend Lee Strobel.”
Here’s the press release from MnA:
Atheists Return to Live Radio in Twin Cities
Minnesota Atheists is pleased to announce the return of its live radio program, “Atheists Talk,” on KTNF radio, AM 950, Sundays, 9:00-10:00 a.m., beginning August 1, 2010.
The show can be heard live on the airwaves at AM 950 in the Twin Cities, streamed live on the KTNF website at am950ktnf.com, and downloaded later as a podcast from MinnesotaAtheists.org or from iTunes.
The “Atheists Talk” program previously ran for 18 months, from January 2008 to June 2009. It was the first ongoing atheist radio program in Minnesota. (Past programs are available free on iTunes.)
As before, the show will be produced by Minnesota Atheists, co-directed by August Berkshire and Mike Haubrich, and hosted by Mike
“Many people have told us that our ‘Atheists Talk’ radio program was one of the best things we ever did. We are pleased to have this opportunity to resurrect it,” stated Minnesota Atheists president August Berkshire.
“We gave atheists a voice on the radio, and we are going to continue that,” stated Mike Haubrich, the show’s host. “We’ll talk about atheism, humanism, state/church separation, religion, ethics, science, art, and many other topics of interest to the community. We plan to have fun on a Sunday morning.”
The opening program will feature Scott Lohman, president of the Humanists of Minnesota, interviewing author Robert M. Price on his new book “The Case Against the Case for Christ,” which is a critique of Lee Strobel’s book “The Case for Christ.”
Other shows already planned are a look at religious indoctrination, with atheist theologian Grant Steves (August 8); a discussion of the latest anthropological discoveries, with U. of M. scientist Greg Laden (August 15); and live broadcasts from the Minnesota State Fair on atheism and humanism (August 29 and September 5, respectively).
Minnesota Atheists is the state’s oldest, largest, and most active atheist organization. Its goals are to provide a community for atheists, educate the public about atheism, and promote separation of state and church.
