Hemant Mehta is the editor of Friendly Atheist, appears on the Atheist Voice channel on YouTube, and co-hosts the uniquely-named Friendly Atheist Podcast. He is a former National Board Certified high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago, where he taught for seven years.
Hemant has appeared on CNN and FOX News Channel (really). He has served on the board of directors for Foundation Beyond Belief (a charity organization targeting non-theistic donors) and was the chair of the board of the Secular Student Alliance (which creates and supports college atheist groups nationwide).
He is the author of three books, including I Sold My Soul on eBay (WaterBrook Press, 2007) and The Young Atheist’s Survival Guide (Patheos Press, 2012).
Nearly every day, Hemant scours the internet for anything and everything related to atheism, some amusing and some horrifying. We appreciate his work, and enjoy his superbly written articles!
