Ask an Atheist is a live call-in radio show based in Lakewood, WA, and currently broadcast on KLAY AM 1180 Tacoma. Episodes are also available as a podcast or on YouTube after the live recording. The show was originally a public access TV show, but had to be reorganized for radio after the Seattle public access studio was closed down. However, the show won several awards given out by Seattle public access during its tenure on TV, among others for "Favorite Religious, Spiritual, or Faith programming."[1]

The show usually discusses a topic brought in by the hosts, but has open lines for callers. Regular segments that have also been featured include "The Countdown to Backpedaling,"[2] a countdown to the next foretold Rapture as prophesied by Harold Camping, or "Scripture Says… What?" in which certain passages of various holy texts are examined.
