  1. Hi!
    Interesting show. I have searched and not found a general email contact for your show so I guess I’ll just put my message here.

    Dear Christian, Reb, Amanda, Ryan, 

    Thank you for being a voice of reason and for speaking out for those of us who do not believe in god.

    I would be interested in appearing on your show. My book, Women Beyond Belief: Discovering Life without Religion, is coming out October 1 through Pitchstone Publishing. I have been fortunate to obtain book blurbs from Richard Dawkins, Valerie Tarico, Rebecca Hale, John Loftus, Sikivu Hutchinson, Peter Boghossian and others.

    The book is a collection of personal essays from 22 women from diverse backgrounds who tell their stories of leaving religion. From various Judeo-Christian traditions, they talk about the shame, guilt, and oppression religion imposed on them and how they freed themselves from its grip.

    I chose to focus on women because of the 2014 U. S. Supreme Court decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby which also motivated me to write the book. In this decision, the court decided that because of its religious views, this craft store did not have to provide certain forms of birth control to its employees through The Affordable Care Act. As a woman who came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, I thought we had this handled. I am incensed we are still fighting for women’s reproductive rights today.

    I have a PhD from the University of Wisconsin and am the retired executive director of the Oregon State Bar.

    I have a blog at http://www.faithlessfeminist.com, a Facebook Page, and a YouTube channel. I am on Twitter @karen_garst.

    Thank you for your consideration of having me on your show. I am now scheduling July through September.

      Hi, Karen – thanks for contacting us. We actually ran into someone promoting your book at the Reason Rally and had already planned to see if you could be on the show. We have a standing rule that we only talk to authors after we have read their work so perhaps after the publication date..? I’m personally looking forward to reading the book. You can email the show directly at god-at-atheistairwaves.com – you’ll get a quicker response there. 🙂
