    Here is a fantastic listen that works brilliantly alongside the massively popular The Atheist's Guide to Christmas. This Guide was edited by Ariane Sherine, who has managed to compile a wonderful concoction of the world's most entertaining writers, scientists, comedians, and philosophers to read, perform, and narrate pieces that they had all written for the print book version.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    If you could take any character from The Stupidest Angel out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Roberto the Fruit bat because he is interesting
