  • Episode 38, Atheism and AA, Part 2

    This week, we are joined by Zach Nyhus, who was also “background voice #1″ on last week’s episode.  Like last week’s guest Marc (who is our background voice this week), Zach is a recovering alcoholic and an atheist.  He, however, has found a secular chapter of AA.  Atheist & Agnostic AA (4A)is a new movement within the larger AA structure that recognizes that some people don’t want to have god be on their road to recovery.  Zach even reads to us from the Big Book! And finally, even though he asked us a question from the audience on our first episode, he never got to answer our five questions…until now!

  • Episode 37 – Atheism and AA, Part 1

    This week we talk with Marc Baker about his experiences as a atheist who is also a member of Alcoholics Anonymous.  In something new for us, we recorded with next week’s guest Zach Nyhus in the room because he is also a recovering alcoholic.  Marc shares his feelings about the way AA pushes god as a part of the twelve steps and how he manages to make it work for him.  Then, because we read his answers on our Left Behind episode, Marc gets to ask us five questions!
