In this episode, Bo interviews Chris Johnson, author of A Better Life: 100 Atheists Speak Out on Joy & Meaning in a World Without God.
From the publisher:
The myth persists. Even in our modern world, countless people believe that without God, one’s life has no purpose or meaning — that the lives of atheists are devoid of joy and happiness because they are not religious.
Starting out as one of the highest-grossing publishing projects on Kickstarter, A Better Life highlights the various ways that those who are not religious find joy, meaning, and purpose in life. Photographer Chris Johnson spent two years traveling the world speaking with and photographing atheists from all walks of life to create this hardcover photography coffee table book.
Chris Johnson is a New York-based photographer and filmmaker. He received his undergraduate degree in film production (along with a minor in religious studies) from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. His photography has been seen in The New York Times. He has spent the last two years working on A Better Life, traveling across the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland, and other countries.
