Very interesting listening to those broadcasts. Apart from the Radio Devon person, all the others seemed to have a preconceived idea of what the research was about and wanted to attack, he was the only one, imo, who actually wanted to engage with Paula and get her perspective on what the research was showing.

It was also interesting that all of the other 3 concentrated on their view that this research was just about telling christians that they weren't christians, or how christians should be. Paula had to pick them up on this each time and show that this research was more about how christians viewed things and wasn't RDF trying to impose anything on them.

All in all, a good series of interviews. I think Paula came across very well and if anyone, after listening to those interviews, wants to try to say that atheists are shrill and strident, then they quite obviously weren't listening.
