In this episode I speak with historian Dr. Nathan Alexander about his new book, Race in a Godless World: Atheism, Race, and Civilization, 1850-1914.

We talk about what Christianity and secularism have each done to engender and stem racist ideas and policies. We also discuss the peculiar resurgence of scientific racism in recent years, particularly among self-described atheists, skeptics, and freethinkers.

Please buy and read Dr. Alexander's book, Race in a Godless World. More info here: https://nyupress.org/9781479835003/race-in-a-godless-world/
