I was on Cork Campus Radio this afternoon for about an hour discussing the blasphemy law and secularism. I think they will podcast it in the next few days.

I'll be sure to listen in and I'll nab the recordings as their happening.

As long as their not all the exact same questions each interview (I'm guessing there will be a bit of overlapping though), I'll upload them to my channel. If you want any of them for the Atheist Ireland channel any of the people who can edit the channel can just get in contact with me and I'll upload them somewhere.

There was a typo (now corrected) in the first post on this thread.

Global Village on Newstalk is at 7 pm on Saturday, not Sunday.

This should be an interesting discussion, because we have a few Atheist Ireland members being interviewed.

Loved the global village show on Saturday- thought it was too one sided tho! Best advertisement for atheism is having a religious delusional stutter and paraphrase when faced with reality! The song was hilarious but it was b4 the watershed and was a bit out of order in fairness! The presenter didn't understand the eh, terminology of the chorus!

Well apparently there was a difficulty finding anyone who was willing to defend the blasphemy law!

Well done Michael. I don't know what else I expected from Duffy & O'Brien, but I didn't expect him to be quite so adversarial from the get go. He opened the discussion by saying Dublin City Council was considering removing Arch Bishop Ryan's name from Merrion Square and in the course of asking the councillor (can't remember her name) either the 1st or 2nd question he asked a long-winder accusatorial question which ended with something like 'Arch Bishop Ryan still has relitives alive, why are you trying to deliberately insult them?'

That quickly gave me the slant of the programme.

Breda O'Brien was suitably hilarious. She seemed agaisnt the way in which Atheist Ireland went about highlighting the ridiculousness of the new blasphemy law because people on the forum of this site use the word 'fuck' a lot.

I suppose she was speaking to an audience she knows well. I don't see all that many non-catholics, let alone non-religious people watching a religious programme hosted by Joe Duffy on a Sunday afternoon.

As for the 2nd discussion on IVF, the chap on the programme said that left over embryos should be given up for adoption. Wow!

I enjoyed the Spirit Level discussion although Duffy only asked for Michaels comments on 3 or 4 occassions I think.

He seemed more obsessed with the renaming of Merrion Sq than anything else.
