Appearance on Oklahoma Atheists Podcast

I recently spoke with Damion and Chas from Oklahoma Atheists for an episode of their podcast. This episode was recorded shortly after my resignation from the Pennsylvania chapter of the Secular Coalition for America and the surrounding controversy (which is one of the discussion topics).

Here are the show notes for the episode:

Last week, Chas and Damion had the pleasure of talking with Justin Vacula at some length on various topics: activism, blogging, conferences, and the state of the freethought movement. Justin is a writer for the Skeptic Ink Network, a public speaker, debater, host of the NEPA Freethought Society Podcast, an outspoken atheist, and an activist for the separation of church and state. Enjoy the show!
