No, it seems the people being talked about are always the last to know. Not only am I not head of the British Humanist Association, I am not even a member, nor do I ever refer to myself as a Humanist.

Where did you find that?

I do run the UK branch of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science. But that, as you'll know, is a completely different organisation from the BHA.

The reason "I" know is that I listened to the audio, about the 19 minute point of the second one. A small caveat about the audio....I was unable to 'drag' the cursor back to the 19 minute point. It needs a click to make it jump about 5 seconds each time. Quite tedious. Do I get a prize for being the first to report it ? A t-shirt would be nice. Nudge, nudge.

I hate flash players, better to just download the mp3 files and use your own instead:

I thought that Andy's arguments on this radio show were far better articulated than than the presentation that he did on You Tube a while back and far more convincing too. I have the book gathering dust in my to read stack. It's just made it to the top of the pile after this.
