The Atheist Experience is a live, call-in, public-access TV program sponsored by the Atheist Community of Austin (ACA). It airs on Sundays from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. Central Time on Austin's Time Warner Cable Channel 10. Past episodes of the show have begun to air in other cities, as well; see the website for details.

Format of the show

The show is usually hosted by Matt Dillahunty, current president of the ACA. He is joined each week by one of a handful of regular cohosts, including Don Baker, Jeff Dee, Russell Glasser and Tracie Harris.

After regular announcements of ACA events, the cohost usually talks about a predetermined topic for about half an hour, then calls are taken from viewers. The calls need not stick to that show's topic, allowing the discussion to wander into many different areas, including what atheism is and what atheists "believe in" (a question usually asked by Christian callers), the difference between atheism and agnosticism, the possibility of secular morality, the scientific viewpoint (especially the validity of evolution and the Big Bang), life after death, and other topics.

Upcoming and past episodes

A list of upcoming episodes, including scheduled cohosts, can be found at the official website. The site also contains an archive of the last year of episodes in several different digital formats, including MP3 and Ogg/Vorbis. Older episodes can be purchased on DVD. Videos of the show can also be found on Google Video.
