I had a great time talking with directors Ryan Moore and Tim Banks about their upcoming documentary film 'A Year Without God' (@YWG_film). They followed ex-Pastor Ryan Bell around for a year as he set out to discover 'What difference does god make?' They share some exclusive insight into the film and tell us about their own paths to free thought.
I had a great time talking with Clive and Lola from London Black Atheists (@LndBlkAtheists). They explain the numerous reasons that necessitate a group of this kind.
