I knew of your show, but never watched it until this week. You are now one of my heroes. I'm in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (Close to Toronto).
But you do have a problem when you do your show -- your problem is in this…"
"Hey Matt. Remember me? Are you still willing to fight the atheist corner on UK's Premier Christian Radio? Here is the e-mail address to contact the presenter. It would be so cool if you would do it.

I love the Atheist Experience and Non-Prophets. I look forward to downloading and listening to every podcast. I also credit your show for finally giving me the courage to declare that I am an Atheist. I was born Catholic, but I've always questioned my faith and felt guilt over my lack of faith.

I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
