We chat with PZ Myers about his new book The Happy Atheist. He was named Humanist of the Year in 2009 by the American Humanist Association and received the International Humanist Award in 2011 from the International Humanist and Ethical Union. He has lectured throughout the world on biology, evolution, atheism and skepticism. And he writes the acclaimed science blog Pharyngula.

We also speak with Trisha and Stephen Shaskan. Trisha has written over 40 books for children, her newest being Truly We Both Loved Beauty Dearly: The Story of Sleeping Beauty as Told by the Good and Bad Fairies. Stephen's new book is Three Triceratops Tuff. He is also the author/illustrator of A Dog is a Dog, named in the top 100 read-alouds by the NY Public Library.
