Well, that does it. I have just deleted the last of the atheist podcasts I listened to, and for the same reason as all of the others. The ludicrous liberal bent has just made it all but impossible to listen to them any longer. So to Cognitive Dissonance, a not so fond farewell.
And it’s sad because it used to be a really good podcast, but it has gotten more and more and more ridiculously liberal as time has gone on. I get why they’re doing it, the vast majority of their audience is far left and they want to make money. But that’s not me and I don’t want to hear it.
You know me, I have no problem criticizing the political right, I spent a lot of time doing it on my podcast, but they’ve crossed the line. I don’t think they can even see the line from where they are presently. Anything that isn’t far-left, they make fun of and there isn’t any actual intelligence remaining on their show like there used to be, everything is a joke, but honestly, most of it just isn’t funny.
So if anyone has any atheist podcasts that are strictly anti-religion, let me know because I really don’t know of any. Lots of them start off that way, then become more and more and more political as time goes on, to the point that they really don’t talk about religion much at all. It’s all hard left bullshit that I have zero interest in listening to. I mean seriously, Cognitive Dissonance was, until very recently, a relatively pro-gun podcast when they talked about it. Tom and Cecil are both gun owners. Now though, they’re hyper anti-gun because… liberalism. Sorry, zero interest whatsoever. But week after week, it just got worse. I’d struggle to get through an episode and would even find myself just tuning the whole thing out. Finally, I turned it off in the middle and said enough is enough, that’s it, deleted the podcast and am just finished. And you know something? Like Non-Prophets and Atheist Experience and a lot of other podcasts I’ve dropped for the same reason, I honestly don’t miss it. I used to dread having to sit through another 90 minutes of liberal stupidity. Now I don’t have to. I can find a podcast about something I actually care about. It won’t be atheism, but hey, you can’t have everything.
