Recovering from Religion


Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.

Friends at Secular Sexuality, I am happy to announce the official launch of my new podcast, Secular Sexuality. This is like no other sexuality podcast. I deal openly with all sorts of issues but most importantly, I hit religion and religious sexual programming head on. The first three episodes are up now with two more up soon. It is available on iTunes, Spreaker and soon on iHeart Radio. Please give a listen and let others know and please rate it on iTunes. I think you will find it unlike any other sex and sexuality podcast.
