This week, Jesse and Andy talk to Ryan Connell, who studies topics of religion and faith diligently in his post-apostasy and writes about it on his blog, The Holy Apostate. The group talks about why these topics are so compelling from the perspective of someone who has moved away from the world of religion, what is unique about American religions, and where American religion appears to be heading. In the segment "What in the World is Happening in the World?," the team talks about the documentary "Sand Wars," and how we are running out of usable sand around the world. Finally, the team talk through Ryan's upcoming spiritual journeys as he travels around the country exploring these ideas.
