This interview was recorded on July 2nd, 2018

In this episode, I recorded a conversation I had with Tracey. I first met Tracey when she was a co-host of a podcast that interviewed me last summer.

Since then, we have become online friends and we have both been through a similar experience with the atheist movement over the past year. During our Skype call, we talk about leaving the atheist movement and skeptical community.

There are no atheist churches on every corner. There are very few physical locations to go to interact with people who are part of the atheist and skeptical communities. The majority of the community is online, so the quantity of social media increases as you get more involved and vice versa. And so, Tracey and I discuss what it’s like to take a break from social media.

Tracey has a blog called Godless Mama which she has had for over 8 years which was about the time she first became a part of the skeptical and atheist movement.

I was going to interview her when I still had the Women Beyond Belief podcast but that was postponed after I ended up cancelling the podcast under that name. Then, Tracey started her own podcast this past spring where she interviewed me in her Episode 3. So we have finally been able to coordinate our schedules and record our skype call.

I really respect Tracey and it’s so good to have a friend to be blunt and honest with. Tracey is a good example of a Resilient Woman.
