“My pursuit of love took me to Christianity and it took me past it. Most people would admit that one of the most powerful things about Christianity is not God, it’s community”
-Cass Midgley, creator of the Everyone’s Agnostic podcast.
Today I finally had the privilege to meet Cass Midgley!
His podcast (Everyone's Agnostic) was the first podcast I found that shared deconversion stories. This has been so encouraging to me through the years and played a big role in helping me process my deconversion.
He's an open book and a straight shooter. The longer you listen to Cass, the more you'll discover an incredibly insightful, compassionate and generous human being.
Cass Midgley earned his Masters in Theological Studies from Vanderbilt University in 2013…as an atheist. Cass started the Everyone's Agnostic podcast in 2014 with friend and former co-host Bob Pondillo. Everyone's Agnostic podcast now has over half a million downloads!
As a boy, Cass knew there was a God; the two were close, personal friends. Born and raised in Oklahoma, Cass walked right into Christianity. Christianity gave him a great life: purpose, friends, community, hope, etc.
In 2004, at age 38, he left the church and began thinking and reading things he would not allow himself to while a Christian.
When not uniting the deconvert community, Cass also enjoys his daily crossword puzzle, watching college basketball, and drinking cheap gin & tonic with lots of lime. Cass is also a Humanist Chaplain who officiates non-religious weddings and funerals for all genders and orientations.
