Freethought Radio, co-hosted by FFRF directors Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor, began in 2006. It later became part of the Air America Network weekend lineup for more than two years.

Since Air America folded, Freethought Radio has aired in Madison, Wis., where it is originally broadcast, in Anchorage, Atlanta, Monterey, and Grand Rapids, Mich., as well as having 10,000 regular podcast listeners.

“We don’t want to just preach to the deconverted,” jokes Gaylor. “You can turn on the radio or TV 24/7 and be preached at. We want to reach the public, and educate them about the views of nontheists,” one of FFRF’s two express purposes. FFRF is also a major state/church watchdog.

“This is radio for the rest of us,” says Barker, who bills himself as “the friendly neighborhood atheist of the airwaves.”

This week’s show highlights young nonbelievers, with guest Jesse Galef, who works with the Secular Student Alliance.

Freethought Radio originates in the studio of The Mic. 92.1, Madison, Wis., Saturdays 11 am to Noon Central, also streaming live. Its broadcasts will continue in four other venues:

Ada/Grand Rapids, MI: WPRR AM 1680 and 95.3 FM Public Reality Radio, Airs Weds 3 pm, Thurs 3 am
Anchorage: KUDO AM 1080, Sat 9-10 am, Sun 11 am-noon
Monterey-Salinas, CA: KRXA AM 540, Sun. 7 pm
Atlanta: Green AM 1640, 1 pm, repeats Sun. 3 pm
