Kirstine Kærn of the Babelfish podcast in conversation with Jacques Rousseau, who was never a Methodist minister [but who nearly became a different sort of priest].

In this second episode discussing God[s], Greg and Jacques discuss the difference between atheism and agnosticism, whether Jacques is going to hell, and whether we should tell him so.
