Laurie Taylor on apocalyptic religions and the French trouble with the veil

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Our commissioning editor Laurie Taylor's Radio 4 show, Thinking Allowed, steps firmly into New Humanist territory today as he talks to Nicholas Guyatt, author of Have a Nice Doomsday: Why Millions of Americans are looking forward to the end of the world. We reviewed Guyatt's book back in July last year, and he'll be discussing apocalyptic cults with Laurie this afternoon.

His other guest will be Joan Wallach Scott, author of Politics of the Veil, who'll be discussing the the controversy over the wearing of the veil in France.

It's on Radio 4 at 4pm today, but if you miss it you can also listen again online or download a podcast.
