  1. I was thrilled to have a new LAF podcast episode. And, Ms. Winnell was incredibly insightful.

    Thank you so much for all your efforts at continuing this podcast.

  2. I just watched Dr. Winnell's talk at the Texas Freethought Convention(2010, split into 4 parts on YouTube). It's a very powerful talk, and well worth the time. It really gives a sense of what folks coming out of religion are facing.

  3. Excellent show and very informative about religious trauma. Rich's interview, as a sufferer of RTS, was very human and compelling.

  4. Top stuff guys! Keep the podcasts coming.

  5. This podcast was one of my favorites to date. I've listened to it twice already. Thank you. I didn't know anything about RTS, but it really hit home for me.

  6. Thank you. This was one of the best I've ever heard. So much makes sense now.

  7. Dear Rich and Deanna Joy,
    You two are amazing. I know this work is a labor of love and I for one understand how much it is needed since I see how much people have been harmed by authoritarian religion. It will be a while before this suffering is no longer under the radar of awareness in our society, so thank-you for taking us forward in that direction. Keep up the good work. Marlene Winell

  8. Nice to see you back.

  9. Really good to see you guys back. I always worry about you when you disappear for a long time.

  10. I have listened to this podcast 6 times. I suspect that I could listen to it another 6 times. Thank you. Luke :)
