Once upon a time, a shoemaker had the fun idea of creating a line of shoes that would allow a person to declare themselves an atheist. So the shoemaker put his idea up on Kickstarter. Lots of people loved the idea, supported the Kickstarter, and got the fun shoes. Everyone lived happily ever after.
If the idea of a successful, openly atheist businessman selling blatantly atheist products sounds a bit like a fairy tale, that may be because you live in the United States. David Bonney, who created the Meaningful Shoe Company, lives in Germany. Join us this Sunday as we talk to him about his business and what it’s like being an atheist in a country where religion has much less political sway.
