A professional video producer and host of one of the most popular atheist communities on the internet, Seth Andrews brings a polished format, a relaxed environment and a rage-free challenge to the religious beliefs that defined his youth.

SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR: http://www.naturebox.com/thinkingatheist Gretta Vosper has been an atheist for many years, and she preaches/teaches from the perspective of a Bible skeptic, a rationalist, a humanist, and a non-believer in a literal god. Now, the United Church of Canada is considering her removal from church leadership because of her atheism. In this broadcast, we talk with Gretta personally and ask: Why does an atheist minister belong in a Methodist church?
