Atheist and Humanist Podcast Links – Last Update: December 08, 2016

This is my “Atheist Media Podcasts” page…

While most of these projects are produced by confirmed atheists, a few of these are not specifically atheist…such as the humanist podcast. However, all of these productions will generally be complementary to atheism. If you are an atheist…you might enjoy one, or several, of these. If you are not an atheist, then you still may find something of interest, regardless.

With exception to a few of these [which I found, while trying to relocate some podcasts, I’d fallen out of contact with], I’ve spent a substantial amount of time [several years, in a few cases] downloading and listening to these podcasts.

Note: If you know of any good quality atheist, humanist and freethought podcasts [or other media], and would like to submit them for inclusion on this page, please send me the links. I will consider all submissions, though I should stress that my intention here is to highlight content which is “above the fray”. I am not looking for YouTube channels, owned by atheists who meander and rant about everything [though I’ll be the first to admit, I privately enjoy a few channels of that nature]. There is a certain standard of substantive content, being enforced on this page.

The latest additions to this list start with what is highlighted by this flashing gif. Everything following below that point, is amongst the latest additions.

The Humanist Hour [previously “Humanist Network News”]:

Summary: Great podcast! I’ve found this to be one of the better humanist podcasts out there. It’s gone through some changes, since it started…but, this production is solid.

feed url: http://feeds.feedburner.com/HNN_Podcast

Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-humanist-hour/id99193025

American Freethought Podcast:

Summary: I just recently found this one, so I cannot really give relevant comment.

Homepage: http://americanfreethought.libsyn.com/

feed url: http://americanfreethought.libsyn.com/rss

Logically Critical:

Summary: [Dead Podcast] This is an Archive. There are not many episodes [only 27], and topics seem to span widely.

Homepage: http://www.logicallycritical.net/Welcome.html

Facts Before Faith:

Summary: “Examining the flawed logic, assumptions, and questionable claims made in the defense of Christian theology.”

Homepage: http://www.factsbeforefaith.com/

feed url: http://www.factsbeforefaith.com/feed

Freethought Radio [Freedom From Religion Foundation]:

Summary: Good podcast…For better or worse, the Freedom From Religion Foundation is the organization which has gained some infamy, over the lawsuits it has filed regarding religious monuments, etc…Some instances, even I would call boneheaded. All the same, you might enjoy the podcast.

The Atheist News Podcast:

Summary: [A Dead Podcast] They left up an archive of the series [41 episodes].

Godless Business:

Summary: Much like The Non-Prophets, but with Australians.

Real Time with Bill Maher:

Summary: If you like “Real Time with Bill Maher”, you might appreciate knowing that they make the audio from every show available, as a free podcast. I recommend subscribing to the feed URL, and downloading them from there. The HBO website is very media/code heavy, and takes a while to load up [I find that annoying, personally]. This is not, strictly speaking, atheist media…but, a lot of atheists appreciate Bill’s viewpoints…allegedly, Bill finally came around, and admitted being agnostic atheist [though I have not verified this].

The Non-Prophets:

Summary: A handful of atheists from Austin Texas, getting together every other week, to talk about issues, and current news. All in all, an interesting podcast.

Homepage: http://www.nonprophetsradio.com/

feed url: http://www.nonprophetsradio.com/nonprophets.xml

Bob Price – The Bible Geek:

Summary: Dr. Bob Price is a bonafide bible scholar [attended seminary, in pursuit of the ministry], and an atheist, too! Bob got his start, on “The Infidelguy Show”. His show may not be to everyone’s taste, but if you’ve never heard him before, I recommend giving him a listen. It’s amazing, the depths of biblical knowledge Bob has. He has no qualms, about dissecting passages of the bible, with critical examination yet good humor…He can also answer a lot of questions, about historical contexts of passages, etc. Bob is the only person I’ve listened to, who can read a passage, elaborate on what it is stating, talk about who may have wrote it, discuss it’s context, explain why it may have been possible or not, and maybe even suggest that the author had been smoking something funny…Classic stuff.

Pat Condel’s Godless Comedy:

Summary: Some people may find him offensive, but I love Pat Condel! He is frank, in a very witty sort of way, and is not vulgar. The way he skewers religion, is a true art. I’ve gotten a lot of laughs, out of his podcast. That being said, he mostly focuses on religious zealots, and issues that the majority of us would likely call outrageous. Some people think he crosses the line, but as a former “christian”, myself…I think he says things about religion born behavior, which are entirely warranted. The fact that it’s often funny how he says it, makes this podcast all the better.

The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe:

Summary: I’m fairly new to this podcast, but it seems like a good one.

Ex-Christian Monologues:

Summary: Strictly speaking, this is not a podcast, but a collection of very interesting recordings. It does not appear to be an active project, as the last entry was well over a year ago. I suggest accessing them via the feed URL, as the main website keeps crashing my web browser.

Homepage: http://new.exchristian.net/p/podcasts.html

The Good Atheist:

Summary: [A Dead Podcast] A good podcast, with over 300 episodes.

Homepage: http://www.thegoodatheist.net/

The Infidel Guy Show:

Note: It saddens me to discover the fate of this podcast. To understand the gravity of Reginald ending his podcast…”The Infidel Guy Show” lasted for about a decade. Reginald was a true pioneer in atheist media, as well as in podcasting. He may not have had the absolute best produced show, but he commonly had great guests…His show was recorded live, and took calls from the listeners. He did a lot for atheist podcasting…but was ultimately eclipsed by the many free [and sometimes better] podcasts…But “The Infidel Guy Show” truly was the granddaddy of atheist podcasting. It is depressing to see, nearly everything is gone. Last I knew, I thought he was trying to rebuild on YouTube…

…So, I found a couple of archives with the old show, with quite a few episodes…I’m not sure if this is supposed to be a mere sample, if it was supposed to be a sampling of the better shows…or if someone intended on uploading all of the episodes of the series…but I am giving the links below.

Summary: [A Dead Podcast] Hands down, my favorite atheist podcast. Reginald has been doing this show, for quite a few years…and he has great guests…Really good interviews. Unfortunately, it does seem to be in a bit of limbo.

The Christian & The Atheist:

Summary: [A Dead Podcast] – The half dozen or so episodes of this podcast, were recorded during 2005 and 2006. Seemingly, it ran out of steam somewhat quickly. This does not look to be related to “A Christian and an Atheist”, which is also linked here. It’s still fairly interesting.

A Christian and an Atheist:

Summary: [A Dead Podcast] Good podcast. I enjoy these kinds of respectful “give and take” exchanges, between theists and atheists. I think these are some of the most productive, in bridging gaps between the two communities…That is something I wish we would see more of.
