Becky, Dan, and Josh ponder personhood for non-human animals, and the meaning of justice.

Ask An Atheist is a weekly radio show dedicated to atheism, skepticism, Secular Humanism, and issues of separation of church and state. AaA was conceived in 2010 by community members Mike Gillis, Casey Doran, Sam Mulvey, and Jeremy Whitman. Each brought different talents to the project, which quickly attracted volunteers from across three counties.
WARNING: Squid Ink may cause congressional diversity, government shutdowns, vice presidential embarrassment, or Stephen Miller’s receding hair line. In this episode, Sam, Luke, and Justin decry northwest white supremacists and make fun of Satan-fearing police officers. They celebrate newly elected officials and laugh at Pence. Then, Warb joins Sam, and they finally explain Squid Ink.

Sam, Tom, Dave, and Ramtho close out the year by responding to listener inquiries about AI, cloning, and genetic modification.

This is incorrect! Ramtha is not a deceased Aztec warrior; Ramtha is a deceased LEMURIAN warrior. Lemuria is a legendary island that has since vanished from the earth, like Atlantis.

We forgot to do an episode this week. Well, we didn’t forget exactly, but we had a lot of things going on that blocked our ability to record this week. It’s uncommon, but given that we were getting equipment together to build the studio for KTQA, you can imagine why it was worth doing. Don’t worry though, we’ll be back to it this weekend! If you want the details, you can check out the podcast. But just for proof: I’m disassembling stuff. About the “Ask An Atheist” Podcast
