Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept guest submissions / are you looking for writers?
Absolutely. We do ask that you make your writing available under the Creative Commons as we have all done for the public good. Submit your writing via the Contact link and we’ll get back to you!
Why is swearing censored on the broadcast?
The show is re-broadcast on terrestrial FM stations and we are bound to the bylaws of the FCC, which outlines outrageous fines for even harmless utterances of swear words.
Do you offer additional formats for the podcast feed besides MP3?
In support of the free software movement, we offer an Ogg Vorbis feed, starting with Episode 58, at http://anamericanatheist.org/?feed=podcast_ogg. Episodes before 58 do not have a lossless version of the audio to convert from, though we can make them available via a lossy-compression from the original MP3 if requested (use the Contact link at the top of the page).
Is there a difference between ‘An American Atheist’ and the ‘American Atheists’?
Yes. ‘American Atheists’ is the civil liberty group founded in the 1960s and ‘An American Atheist’ is this publication and corresponding broadcast. Though the writers and pundits at An American Atheist tend to support the causes of the American Atheists, we are not affiliated with their organization in any way.
