"Atheists Talk" to debut on Air America Minnesota


Minnesota atheists are taking their message to the air waves with a radio program that will debut in January on Air America Minnesota — KNTF-AM.

Called "Atheists Talk" — the same name as a show the organization airs on cable access television — the live broadcast featuring news, interviews, listener call-ins and special guests is believed to be the first show of its kind in Minnesota, August Berkshire, a spokesman for the Minnesota Atheists, told The Minneapolis-St. Paul Star-Tribune.

The show will air ironically on Sundays from 9-10 a.m. starting 1/13 when Oxford professor, evolutionary biologist and renowned atheist Richard Dawkins will be the featured guest. The weekly shows also will be streamed live on the radio station’s website and made available as a podcast.

Berkshire told the paper he will sell advertising to show sponsors that include the American Humanist Association, Humanists of Minnesota, the Secular Coalition for America, EvolveFish and Camp Quest of Minnesota.
