This month we feature: Seth Andrews, creator and host of The Thinking Atheist Podcast, video producer and author.

About the talk: Especially on social media, we're confronted by compelling headlines and (supposedly) sourced information that often strikes our sense of injustice. With his signature brand of storytelling, Seth Andrews examines just a few ways that even the strictest skeptics can be manipulated in the Information Age.

Seth Andrews, a video producer and former Christian broadcaster, now hosts www.thethinkingatheist.com, one of the most popular online atheist communities in the world. The Thinking Atheist is not a person. It is an icon encouraging all to reject faith and pursue reason and evidence.

Seth has authored two books. "Deconverted: a Journey from Religion to Reason" chronicles his journey out of superstition, and "Sacred Cows: A Lighthearted Look at Belief and Tradition Around the World" is a wild romp through many of the world's strangest cultures and customs. (His third book, "Ghost Stories" - a fictional romp inspired by his annual Halloween radio show - releases October 2018 on Audible.com.)

Seth hosts The Thinking Atheist podcast on BlogTalkRadio, a broadcast that has been downloaded worldwide more than 43 million times since its launch in 2010.

With a mix of humor and heart, Seth Andrews has spoken for audiences large and small in the U.S, Canada, and Australia about his former faith, the promotion of science, a Humanist love for people, and why we should all pursue a personal relationship with reality.
