The Godless Spellchecker Podcast is an award winning weekly sceptical/atheistic show in a conversational, interview format hosted by Stephen Knight. We hear from leading public figures as well as people without a public profile that have equally valuable experiences and ideas to share. The goal is to amplify good ideas and scrutinise bad ones.

An interview for this week was done and ready to be sent to the editor. Everything was moving along as usual but then: Technical difficulties. The bad kind.
