"Gandhi and The Hulk... Good Combo" July 14, 2017
Harvard University chaplain Greg Epstein is a minority in his field: He's a humanist, meaning he sees a path to a meaningful and ethical life without the guidance of a higher being. And if you look at the numbers, it makes perfect sense that a university would hire someone like him. More than a third of adult millennials have no religious affiliation.

Humanizing Pastoral Care July 14, 2017
Bart Campolo is a former evangelical pastor who no longer believes in God, but still prays. Jason Callahan says his faith fell away when he left home for college. Today they work as humanist chaplains, one with students, the other with hospital patients. They discuss what they believe, why they chose this line of work, and why they think they are just the tip of the iceberg in their field.

'Coming Out' as an African American Atheist July 14, 2017
Jamila Bey was 19 years old when she told her mother she was agnostic. Since an overwhelming majority of African Americans say they believe in God with “absolute certainty,” that didn’t go over very well. In this interview that originally aired in 2012, two black atheists talk frankly about why being a non-believer is a cultural taboo.
