The Godless Spellchecker Podcast

The Godless Spellchecker Podcast is an award winning weekly sceptical show in a conversational, interview format hosted by Stephen Knight. We hear from leading public figures as well as people without a public profile that have equally valuable experiences and ideas to share. The goal is to amplify good ideas and scrutinise bad ones. I think we've all learned something here today.

This week The #GSPodcast brings you a panel discussion from The Battle Of Ideas featuring Stephen Knight, Ed Husain, Helen Pluckrose and Simon McCrossan. ‘From Bakers to Burqas: Religious Freedom Today’. Historically, religious freedom was considered an essential right, associated with freedom of conscience, and the eighteenth century saw significant philosophical and practical expansion of the right of individuals to practise different religions as they saw fit. Today, we often see religious freedom pitted against other basic liberties like free speech and gender equality. Can these freedoms coexist? Moderated by Jon O’brien.
