Dogma Debate is a fast-paced talk radio show that averages 145,000 listeners per month, and topped over 2.4 million podcast downloads. The topics range from politics and religion to science and comedy, but it’s a favorite among people of all ages and backgrounds. Some notable guests on Dogma Debate have been Neil deGrasse Tyson and Lawrence Krauss. The show is known as a platform for liberal and conservative believers to defend their faith and political views with respectful challenges by those who disagree. It may upset you, it will make you laugh, but most importantly, it will make you think. http://dogmadebate.com/
