Justin Schieber is back
I was introduced to Justin during his time as a co-host of the Reasonable Doubts podcast. Justin is wicked smart and his grasp of philosophy is really impressive. He and the old gang were instrumental in my deconversion and it looks like he hasn't lost his sharpness. I'm excited to have Real Atheology as a podcast.
