Podcast Ep. 221: David Ellis Dickerson, Writer for “The American Bible Challenge”

I recently spoke with David Ellis Dickerson, a former writer for the Christian game show The American Bible Challenge, which aired on the Game Show Network and can now be seen on Netflix.

Dickerson may be best known for his many appearances on “This American Life,” telling stories about growing up a conservative Christian in Tucson, Arizona. Be sure to watch his recent (hilarious) TEDArchive talk.

We spoke about how our paths inadvertently crossed about a decade ago, how an atheist gets a job writing for a Christian game show, and what “SEX DUO” has to do with the Bible.
