The character's name is pronounced Fro-hick-ee, not Fro-hike. C'mon, now. Do your research. Also, why not a Lone Gunmen focused story? Overall great

On his popular science blog, Pharyngula, PZ Myers has entertained millions of fans with his infectious love of evolutionary science and his equally infectious disdain for creationism, biblical literalism, intelligent design theory, and other products of godly illogic. This funny and fearless book collects and expands on some of his most popular writings, giving the religious fanaticism of our times the gleeful disrespect it deserves by skewering the apocalyptic fantasies, magical thinking, hypocrisies, and pseudoscientific theories advanced by religious fundamentalists of all stripes.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Happy Atheist to be better than the print version?

Maybe. Aron Ra has a pretty amazing voice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Big book of snuff porn and dinosaurs. What do you mean, "Why?"

Have you listened to any of Aron Ra’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Just his YouTube lectures. This is good in different ways. On the plus side, he does voices. On the minus side, he pronounced Wichita (which it? taaaww) as we-CHEE-ta. You can't apply latin pronunciation rules to the names of Kansas towns. We voted. Science and pronunciation rules don't matter in our state. We choose what sounds letters make and what laws of physics apply in our borders.

I'd like to hear Aron Ra do more voice work in the future.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Just discovering the author. He framed many things I've heard before in a way that had me laughing on the subway. I intend to check out his other work.
