Great sound quality
Conflict of interest warning: Rich Lyons is my husband, and yes, i am biased because he performs adult services for me. But still, you should listen to this podcast anyway, because I think the sound is really good, and he's got some really interesting things to say, even if I have heard the stories already.
A great podcast for freethinkers, those who have recently left their faith and those who are still in the closet.
A very delightful podcast
I just heard about this podcast today on "The Atheist Experience." It is quite interesting and Mr. Lyons and his wife sound like very warm and friendly people. I personally am a fellow atheist and am far away from the initial depression I faced when I first left Christianity. However, if I had to do it all over again a podcast like this would be a great asset.
The only criticism that I have is in reference to your email responses. I thought it was in poor taste to criticize the grammar and spelling of your Christian emailer. Not everyone has the same luxuries of education that you may have. I can agree with criticizing their views on religion but not with making fun of them.
