It was an interesting conversation on my end: Dan and Annie Laurie interviewed me with a blend of seriousness and lightness, taking the topic of death and grief seriously while at the same time injecting irreverent humor. If you enjoy podcasts, I hope you’ll check this one out!
Podcast fans: I’ve done an interview with Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor on Freethought Radio, the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s weekly radio show and podcast. Dan and Annie Laurie start the show talking about three recent movies with freethought connections. Then they get into the question, “How do atheists deal with death?” That’s where they interview me — talking about my new book, Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing To Do About God. Finally, they talk with Barbara Mancini, who was arrested and prosecuted for handing her terminally ill 93-yr-old father prescribed medicine that he requested, a charge of “assisted suicide” that was religiously and politically motivated, and ultimately dismissed.
Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing To Do About God is available in ebook at Kindle/Amazon (that’s the link for Amazon US — it’s available in other regions as well), Nook/Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. The audiobook is available at Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. All ebook and audiobook editions are just $2.99. And yes, I did the recording for the audiobook. (Plans for a print edition are in the works, but there’s currently no publication date scheduled.)
Greta Christina is author of four books: Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing to Do with God, Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why, Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless, and Bending: Dirty Kinky Stories About Pain, Power, Religion, Unicorns, & More.
