Episode Description

Kathryn interviews Championship-winning soccer star Robbie Rogers on his book “Coming Out to Play”. In February 2013, when Rogers came out as gay via a letter that he posted online, he made sports history. After having kept his sexuality a secret for 25 years, he became the first openly gay man to compete in a major North American professional sports league. Rogers shares the story of the turbulent years leading up to that landmark decision, and the profound ways in which his life changed.

Kathryn interviews bestselling author and political commentator Frank Schaeffer on his book “Why I’m an Atheist Who Believes in God: How to Give Love, Create Beauty and Find Peace”. Are God and science at war? Somewhere between ultra-right wing fundamentalists and the New Atheists are millions of Americans trying to find the balanced middle ground between rational science and deep spirituality. Schaeffer has appeared on Oprah, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, the Today Show, and Rachel Maddow.
