The Friendly Atheist Podcast

I wanted to let you all know that my friendly atheist colleague,
Jessica Bluemke, and I have started a podcast. And, on this podcast,
we interview people we just find
really interesting, and we talk to them about religion, and skepticism
and all the other things they do that– that’s just really interesting. And we’ve already filmed
a couple of these episodes. They’re really fun. I hope you enjoy them too,
and you can find the link below if you want to check it out. And hopefully, like these videos too,
they will hopefully get better over time and you will enjoy it. So, I hope you give it a chance. Check it out, listen to it, give us
a good rating on iTunes, if you like it. And if you have any, you know,
constructive criticism, I’m all ears.
So, please leave a message below and let me know what you would like to hear,
anyone you’d like to hear us interview, because we’re always looking for
interesting guests. Thanks.

Jean Kelley

    +The Atheist Voice — You still haven't addressed the question on the Atheist view of reincarnation which is now becoming accepted more by the sciences. … I wonder why ???

  2. Teistooher Posted on June 28, 2014 at 5:24 pm

  3. Shangori Posted on June 28, 2014 at 5:25 pm

  4. M B Posted on June 28, 2014 at 5:36 pm

    Would you be willing to post it somewhere else as well? Perhaps on YouTube, even if it's on a different channel? I really dislike iTunes.

  5. Linus Valenzuela Posted on June 28, 2014 at 6:27 pm

  6. Jon Shuck Posted on June 28, 2014 at 6:39 pm

  7. Mahtlahtli Posted on June 28, 2014 at 6:49 pm

    Hey guys, i have a question, do you think the US will have an atheist president in the next 30 years or so? (and when I mean by "atheist" president, I mean that that person OPENLY admits that they are atheist) Just an interesting question I wanted to know/

  8. Jeffery Guerard Posted on June 28, 2014 at 7:03 pm

    That would be really cool if you were to interview charlieissocoollike

  9. StygianEmperor Posted on June 28, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    He might be getting sick of giving interviews at this point, but I'd love to hear one with Lucien Greaves of the Satanic Temple.

  10. Dan Doss Posted on June 28, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    Can you publish them somewhere other than itunes?

  11. A P Posted on June 28, 2014 at 8:56 pm

    This is so exciting! I can't wait to listen!

  12. Birasa George Posted on June 28, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    podcast to wp plz

  13. Oyinkan Alao Posted on June 28, 2014 at 9:39 pm

    HELLO! Excuse me Mr. Hemant Metah, I cant believe that you cant find faith in the God I and  hundreds of millions of other believers have in God! I hope you don't meant to say that all the people that believe and have believed in ages past are foolish. That would be an unwise thing to say. If it worked for them it can work for YOU too! There is one ting that I ask of you. If you are a true genuine atheist you will take up this challenge: I would like you to know that God is real and he loves you. If you want to find this out for yourself then try this "experiment". I already know you're probably not going to do it though. But this is most likely the only way you will find out the truth. All you have to do is PRAY to God. First, go to your room and get your knees and just start talking and believe that there is a higher power that is listening to all of your words. Just tell Him that you want to know if he exists and ask him to do something that will let you undoubtedly that he is there with you! While you pray you must have faith and be sincere and passionate and SERIOUS with EVERYTHING you say!  And when you are done have faith that God has heard you and is getting ready to do something! You never know when God will preform an act that will specifically touch your heart into understanding He is real and is loves you and created you! You may have to wait because God knows whens best. If you do this "experiment" and you still emerge an atheist then nothing will change your heart/mind. Are you up for the task? If you are then that shows that you are truly seeking wisdom and the truth about what really matters in life: Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ! That gives purpose and meaning to life.  God Bless You Sir. God help you. God loves you.

    Plzinterview pewdiepie, he announced that he's athiest

  15. Kevin Benoit Posted on June 28, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    Question for Mr. Mehta: why is the podcast listed under "Other" instead of "Religion and Spirituality"?
    P.S. I downloaded all the episodes and subscribed!

  16. Victoria Do Posted on June 28, 2014 at 11:15 pm

    yes!, I love podcasts, I'm excited 🙂

  17. Utracia1 Posted on June 28, 2014 at 11:41 pm

    Putting them up on youtube like The Thinking Atheist does would be terrific

  18. POVgames Posted on June 29, 2014 at 1:08 am

    I don't itunes…. will you be uploading these on to youtube?

  19. Christian Mayo Posted on June 29, 2014 at 3:58 am

    My girlfriend is catholic and I'm normal, what do I do?

  20. Sarahdactile Posted on June 29, 2014 at 4:00 am

    interview seth andrews omg

  21. ApostleGamer Posted on June 29, 2014 at 5:23 am

    just one quick thing, where are you getting the information from which you base your opinions? I'm sure you're a very informed and intelligent person, seeing as you are an author, but the things I hear you say about Christianity are quite contradictory to what we believe, or they appear to be twisted messages from the Bible. Anyway, I don't have a problem with you voicing your opinion on things but try to do it without lying, cheers.  

  22. Joaco Gonzalez Zapiola Posted on June 29, 2014 at 6:05 am

    Hi! i only have one question, from where did you read and get the information that aproves your arguments or beliefs (or anti.beliefs)? just to read them and know more how can defend atheism. Thanks! (sorry for my bad english)

  23. Carlos Gallon Posted on June 29, 2014 at 7:24 am

    Friendly Atheist is not an exaggeration. How could you not disarm militant theists with this attitude?

  24. Dede Posted on June 29, 2014 at 8:53 am

    I clicked the link and subscribed to the podcast BEFORE even clicking on the video, deal with it!

  25. Faux Lightning Posted on June 29, 2014 at 8:57 am

    I actually have a little bit of proof that disproves god. If anyone wanna hear it message back. I don't wanna write a message that no one will see.

  26. movalboy Posted on June 29, 2014 at 10:13 am

    Hemant please consider interviewing WildWoodClaire1 (YouTube channel).
    She takes great delight, and is very skilled at, calling out people on YouTube that distort science for their own agenda.  And when she's not giving our her "Dim Bulb of the Week" award she discusses topics in Geology and related fields.

  27. SubSemantics Posted on June 29, 2014 at 12:53 pm

    can you release these on youtube or make download links for the mp3s? i dont have itunes and i dont feel like putting up with apples bullshit

  28. Richardj Posted on June 29, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    How can anyone give this a thumbs down when it's only an announcement?

  29. River Birzer Posted on June 29, 2014 at 5:51 pm

    Please post the podcasts on youtube.

  30. Бам Бам Posted on June 29, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    Can you upload them to youtube, for all us lowly people that don't have apple stuff?

  31. merinsan Posted on June 30, 2014 at 4:02 am

    Hemant, the number of comments which you've responded too with the alternate link is kind of crazy. You should put that link in the description of the video.

  32. Shmantonio Posted on June 30, 2014 at 10:18 pm

    Please interview Greg Graffin i don't think he gets the attention from the atheist community he deserves

  33. WaRLoKWYATT Posted on July 1, 2014 at 12:30 am

    I would really love to see you interview Penn Jillette and Teller. This two have some great insight and are extremely intelligent. Plus they're fuckin hilarious.

  34. mark kauffman Posted on July 1, 2014 at 3:54 am

    how  does a middle school boy tell his crishtin parents hes atheist :I

  35. GodIsImaginary Posted on July 1, 2014 at 7:08 am

    Love your channel.. On my way to the Podcast!!

  36. GodIsImaginary Posted on July 1, 2014 at 7:11 am

    As far as guests go for your podcast, may i suggest Thunderfoot?

  37. Liam Weeks Posted on July 1, 2014 at 7:14 am

    So I am a Christian I do believe in god but I think maybe god started the big bang. I have a question for you. What created the universe because science says something can't come from nothing so something had to start it off. Maybe it wasn't my god or any other god but something had to start it I realize it's a paradox because if something created the universe what created that something?

  38. Link The Hero Of Time Posted on July 1, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    Could you interview TJ or DarkMatter?

  39. Aaron Espitia Posted on July 4, 2014 at 5:09 pm

    Hey Hemant I have a question. I am 16 years old born and raised in a Catholic family. Both my parents know that I am not religious at all. They know I have disbelief in god and religion. But we live in a place wjere religious people always come knocking at our door telling us the "word of god". I am very polite and hear them out. But a times I feel like the stuff they say is nonsense and I want to tell them what I believe. But I think it will come off as rude or impolite. My uncle said that it's freedom of speech. That I have just as much right to tell them what I believe than they do. So my question is, should I tell them what I believe? Or should I just stay quiet and let them talk their nonsense until the leave?

  40. Odinseeker Posted on July 5, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    Just subbed to the podcast. Looking forward to hearing them!

  41. Milton DLS Posted on July 9, 2014 at 11:29 pm

    Interview the Amazing Atheist! 

  42. Astro X Posted on November 8, 2014 at 7:47 pm

    Maybe you could interview Daniel Sottomaior – the president of the Brazilian Association of Atheists and Agnostics (ATEA) – to help fair atheist causes, since Brazil is mostly catholic and atheism is often seen with contempt. If you could look into doing anything along those lines, I would appreciate a lot. Thanks.
