Bonus Episode – We Haven’t Given Up

Carissa Banner

There are religions that make you question, am I worthy of God’s love and approval? Am I worthy of the church’s love and approval? And contrary to that I think, um, is religion worthy of my love and approval?

Out today on the God Help Us feed is a preview of a very special bonus episode marking one year of the podcast! Annie connects with Carissa Leone, her original guest from episode 0 to talk about what Annie’s learned from her conversations on the podcast and to discuss what to do with our rage. 

Carissa Leone is a writer, comedian, feminist, life-long agnostic, and liberal Democrat. Find more content from her at In this episode, she recommends Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice by Dr. Willie Parker and Annie recommends Notorious RBG by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik.

To listen to full 70 minutes, visit and become a contributor at any level from $2 to $50 per month. You’ll get access to this bonus episode, as well as content from the past six months and new bonus content every month moving forward.
