Oh dear, the podcast features the comedian Alister E. McGrath. I tire of his routine: "I've discovered religion to enormously powerful and transformative." And then he goes on for many, many punch lines, none of which find my funny bone. He describes religion as if it's a kind of alcoholic Superman, who has the "capacity to do very very bad things as well as very good things ... and my real point is simply this, if you single out the bad acts of drunk superman it is easy to condemn him."

I must go re-read PZ's parody of McGrath which is truly funny.
