506: When to tell people you’ve deconverted, and 2 other questions

On this Q&A episode of the podcast, we take 3 questions in a row!

Question 1 is about why Bart decided to tell his parents he wasn’t a Christian anymore at the time he did, and how the calculation would have been different if he wasn’t a ‘professional Christian’. Questions 2 is about starting humanist communities like Caravan in Cincinnati. Bart talks about Caravan and how one may go about using it as a template for new communities. Question 3 is about the impulse to avoid hanging with old friends one doesn’t see much anymore, who you suspect may want to change your mind and get you back into your old life.
