Charlie Hebdo takes this year's Secularist Of The Year Award. I was at the event in London to bring you some exclusive content. We'll hear President of The National Secular Society (@NatSecSoc), Terry Sanderson, tell us why there can be only one winner this year. We'll be hearing Cartoonist Martin Rowson's speech as he accepts the award on Charlie Hebdo's behalf. #JeSuisCharlie
Joining me on this week's #GSPodcast will be comic book writer Sean Michael Wilson (@SeanMichaelWord). He'll be telling me all about his book 'Goodbye God? An Illustrated Exploration of Science vs Religion'. We'll be getting some insight into the process behind producing a comic and I'll be asking Sean how one goes about drawing Hitch. Also: Kindle or Physical copy?
The hilarious comedian Daniel Sloss (@Daniel_Sloss) will be joining me for The #GSPodcast's 50th episode! We have a sweary discussion about stand-up and how effective it can be at challenging bad ideas. We also talk about the brilliant reaction to some of Daniel's godless material. We touch on the importance of context, being a time Nazi, leaving an eternal digital footprint, Twitter spats and the greatest sectarian conflict of all: PS4 or Xbox?
I'm very pleased to have Emily Dyer (@ErDyer1) on the podcast this week to coincide with International Women's Day. Emily is a Research Fellow for The Henry Jackson Society and specialises in Women's rights and Islamism. She recently wrote a report on the problem of Honour Killing in the UK. Some of you may have seen her owning it on the BBC's Big Questions recently too. We discuss ISIS, Islamism, Honour Killing, Apologism, 'Jihadi Brides' and rape victim blaming.
