"Religion is a ball-and-chain for your mind. Being able to actually get out is something that deserves a great deal of respect"
In part 2 of my interview with Gerardo, he tells his parents he's agnostic. He was not expecting their surprising response.
I absolutely love his quote (which I used at the beginning of the episode) where he talks about something he experiences now, that he would not have as a catholic. His answer is the experience of raising his kid. Awaking his child's mind. Love that!
He makes some great references to Interstellar and The Matrix in our conversation. He also compares his catholic-self with his skeptic-self.
He's got a great personality and was a lively and entertaining guest. I had a great time interviewing him.
