About Sam and Becky:
Sam Mulvey, Producer
Sam makes his home in Tacoma with Becky, their two enormous cats, and a great number of electronics. An atheist grown from a long line of agnostics, Sam was shocked by poor media coverage of atheists while collaborating with co-creators Mike, Casey, and Jeremy to make Ask An Atheist a reality. Besides hosting, Sam organizes AaA events in the Tacoma area and is responsible for most of the post-production on radio episodes. He sits on the board of directors of Humanists of Washington, and is a former board member of Seattle Atheists. In his imaginary off-time, he brews beer and plays with ham radio. In the Star Trek or Star Wars dichotomy, Sam chose Babylon 5. He is a collector of vinegar varieties, vintage computers, antique radios, and propaganda. Also, Sam likes puffins.
Rebecca Friedman, Asst. Producer

She participates in various humanistic and atheist groups in the Puget Sound, serving currently as programming director of Camp Quest Northwest and secretary for Humanists of Washington.
