To Be Alive Is An Extraordinary Gift
Strong religionists… weak religionists… after religionists… which one are you? “Religion is one of our most extraordinary creations; we can learn much about ourselves by interrogating it” believes Richard Holloway, formerly Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church. This is our last day with Richard, who must now be frantically busy being guest director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
“To be alive at all is an extraordinary gift”, he says. “It’s a bit daft to use the one life you’re given to trample on the lives of others.” Richard has been challenging people all his life to examine how they live theirs – the paperback of his most recent book, “Between The Monster and the Saint”, is on sale now – if you enjoyed your time with Richard this week, buy it!

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
