We go all operatic this week on The #GSPodcast, with my wonderful guest, Kevin Malone (@OpusMalone).  Kevin is behind the superb ‘Atheist Opera’ entitled ‘Mysterious 44‘.  We’ll be hearing a number of his compositions throughout our conversation as we talk about his upbringing, visiting Richard Dawkins at his Oxford home, his musical tribute to 9/11 and religious hymns.  Make sure you say hello to him on Twitter @OpusMalone.
