What a small world!  I listen to all those except Godless Bitches.  I need to check that one out.  I heard of that one.  I like Ardent Atheist too, but I have not seen new episodes recently.

It was very interesting and freaky.  I like the term  Jehovahweenie. ha!

They seem to be one step worse than Mormons or Scientology (going from what I heard on this podcast).  That is why I was hoping someone who was a JW would listen to this and confirm whether or not this is pretty accurate.

Sheri-

Funny, I listened to it on the way in to work today!  I usually download The Thinking Atheist, Godless Bitches, The Atheist Experience and The Non-Prophets on weekends so I can have some listening material on the long drive to and from school each day.

I also found it very interesting.  Coincidentally, last week the social committee at school was asking everyone about their birthday and the media specialist said "I don't celebrate birthdays".... BINGO. Jehovahweenie. 

My wife was married to the son of a JW for a few years and left him.  His mother is still in the Church.  They are nucking futz.

I found this podcast to be REALLY interesting!  I am trying to remember which lady in our group was a former JW.  Sorry - at work and can't remember off hand.

Anyway, I am a little more than half way through this and there is already tons of info. Just got past the funeral part.  Wow....

It would be nice to see if there is any exaggeration said here.  If there is NOT, this religion is one of the most messed up with their way of thinking.
