The Atheist's Guide to Christmas is a collection of essays by Richard Dawkins, Phil Plait, and other prominent people from the atheist community.

It's tough for an atheist on Christmas. Everyone's a-ho-hoing or a-ring-a-linging, and it's an obstacle course these days trying to avoid long shopping lines and at-capacity parking lots. When even the gas stations have nativity scenes and the elevators play Christmas music, where is an atheist to turn? Why to The Atheist's Guide to Christmas, a collection of essays by Richard Dawkins, Phil Plait, and others, of course! Patt talks to two of the contributors to gain some insight - Neal Pollack, the satirist and journalist who wrote Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude, and Emery Emery, film maker, author, and prominent voice for the atheist cause.

Guests:

Emery Emery, stand-up comedian, writer & producer; contributor to The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas

Neal Pollack, author & journalists; contributor to The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas
