Atheist / Secular Humanist Podcasts


  • American Freethought - The purpose of American Freethought is to serve freethinkers of every stripe: atheists, look agnostics, skeptics, secular humanists, brights, rationalists, or whatever else you wish to call yourselves.  This publication casts a wide net.  In addition to perennial concerns like reason vs. religion and separation of church and state, it will also cover topics that any thoughtful reader should find interesting: science, politics, philosophy, the arts, and social issues.
  • Ask an Atheist - A Call-In Radio Show featuring Atheists from the Tacoma/Seattle Area
  • Astronomy Cast – takes a fact-based journey through the cosmos as it offers listeners weekly discussions on astronomical topics ranging from planets to cosmology. Hosted by Fraser Cain (Universe Today) and Dr. Pamela L. Gay (SIUE), this show brings the questions of an avid astronomy lover direct to an astronomer. Together Fraser and Pamela explore what is known and being discovered about the universe around us.
  • The Atheist Experience - The Atheist Experience is a weekly cable access television show in Austin, Texas geared at a non-atheist audience. Every week we field live calls from atheists and believers alike, and you never know what you’re going to get! Sometimes it can get quite feisty indeed! You don’t want to miss it.
  • Atheist News – the title pretty much says it all (I think defunct now but past episodes available)
  • Chariots of Iron - Chariots of Iron is a weekly podcast featuring news and topical discussions on atheism, humanism, skepticism, science, religious history, scriptural criticism and (of course) wacky religious antics. There is a news segment in which we discuss current events pertinent to the “Atheiskeptihumanists”.

  • Good God/No God (no link – check in ITunes) – One atheist and one theist discuss major issues from differing perspectives
  • Dogma Free America - Science, Medicine, Pseudoscience, Religion, and the Law
  • For Good ReasonFor Good Reason is the interview program hosted by D.J. Grothe, promoting critical thinking and skepticism about the central beliefs of society. Interviews often focus on the paranormal, pseudoscience and the supernatural. Each episode of For Good Reason also features an audio essay by Jamy Ian Swiss, The Honest Liar. The show is produced in association with the James Randi Educational Foundation. (one of Ian’s favorites)
  • Freethought Radio – The Podcast of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (another favorite)

  • Irreligiosophy - “Irreligiosophy” means “the wisdom of irreligion.” Tired of the special place religion has in our society? We try to bring it down a peg by humor, logic, insight, or — if we have to — actually reading the Bible and biblical scholarship and bringing that to you (Funny and insightful….if you can get over Layton’s occasional misogyny)
  • Point of Inquiry – The official podcast of the Center For Inquiry (yet another favorite)
  • Parenting Within Reason – Topical subjects important to parents.
  • A Ration of Reason – Science, Nature and Skepticism
  • Rationally Speaking - Rationally Speaking is a blog maintained by Prof. Massimo Pigliucci, a philosopher at the City University of New York. The blog reflects the Enlightenment figure Marquis de Condorcet’s idea of what a public intellectual (yes, we know, that’s such a bad word) ought to be: someone who devotes himself to “the tracking down of prejudices in the hiding places where priests, the schools, the government, and all long-established institutions had gathered and protected them.
  • Reasonable Doubts - Reasonable Doubts is an award winning radio show and podcast for people who won’t “just take things on faith.” RD’s mission is to investigate the claims of religion from a fair-minded yet critical perspective. In addition to interviewing the top minds in skepticism, RD offers regular segments on religious apologetics, psychology of religion, biblical criticism, and mythology. RD is a production of WPRR Reality Radio (Grand Rapids, MI) and was the winner of the 2009 Peoples Choice Award for Best Religious/Inspirational Podcast.

  • Skepticality - The official radio show and podcast of Skeptic Magazine and the Skeptics Society for the promotion of critical thinking, science, and the elimination of supernatural thinking.
  • Skeptically Speaking - With humour, enthusiasm and a lot of curiosity, Skeptically Speaking guides you through the fascinating world of science and critical thinking. We interview researchers, authors and experts to help listeners understand the evidence, arguments and science behind what’s in the news and on the shelves. A basic understanding of science, combined with a little bit of skepticism, goes a long way.
  • Token Skeptic - With Kylie Sturgess – Why do we believe weird things? What does feminine intuition really mean? How do you become an effective activist for science and reason? Are you ready for a fortnightly show that poses these questions and more? Tune into the Token Skeptic for a slightly more skeptical look at stories in the news, urban legends, good science, pseudoscience, and what makes popular culture pop.
