Friendly Atheist Podcast Episode 60: Dianna E. Anderson, Purity Culture Critic

Our latest podcast guest is Dianna E. Anderson, author of Damaged Goods: New Perspectives on Christian Purity, all about the intersection of the church and sexuality.

Anderson grew up in South Dakota. After stints as an English teacher in Japan and a radio producer in Chicago, she’s turned her focus to writing. Damaged Goods is her first book.

We spoke with her about why sex is often seen as shameful in parts of Christianity, what conversations the broader evangelical culture is having about sex, and whether the church can ever become sex-positive. Lots of sex. #Sex
