New Humanist Advent Calendar Podcasts (link to list)

From Monday, 1 December 2008 to Wednesday, December 24th, these were posted up day by day. There's a short entry and an embedded player in the blog, or you can listen directly to the MP3 file. Each interview subject was asked to pick a scientist or philosopher or writer who they'd suggest be commemorated by an annual day, rather like Christmas, and also any invention through history they'd like for a Christmas present.

Few could be called 'atheist screeds' (tho' the song's pretty strong). The idea of an Advent calendar is small happinesses on opening the doors. Interviewees were asked to nominate a scientist, writer or philosopher they'd like commemorated annually, like Jesus at Christmas, and to choose anything from all time around the world they'd like for a Christmas present. (Main post edited to add info.)

They're mainly British personalities (obvious exceptions Ann Druyan & PZ Myers). I recognise only 6 or 7 names. Many are comedians – some say Stephen Fry is God, I'd grant the possibility of Demiurge-ness – tho' some of those give serious answers, e.g. Josie Long & Dara O'Briain.
