New: The Pod Delusion Extra feed is a bit like ITV2 for people with a triple digit IQ. Here’s where we post extra bits and pieces that we don’t have room for on the main show – extended interviews and the like, as well as completely new podcasts of special events that we’ve recorded, such as the debate between Richard Dawkins and AC Grayling about evidence for the supernatural.
