The 50-minute Center for Inquiry podcast on accommodationism between Chris Mooney and P. Z. Myers, theoretically moderated by Jennifer Michael Hecht, is now available (click on upper right at the link). It’s actually not bad—save for the moderator’s interruptions—so you should ignore P.Z.’s advice to skip the piece.
Unfortunately, Hecht is totally annoying and self-promoting (in the panel discussion in L.A., which she was also supposed to moderate, she was equally self-promoting, constantly touting her books). A moderator’s role is to keep the discussion on topic or flowing in productive directions, as well as asking good questions, but Hecht simply acts as a discussant, and not a very good one at that. Her statements are time-wasting digressions. And, as P.Z. noted, she joins with Mooney in an attempted pile-on, decrying the counterproductive stridency of Gnu Atheism. I say “attempted” because it’s not successful. P.Z. does a good job, while Mooney is pretty much what we’ve come to expect. It may be germane that Hecht, like Mooney, had Templeton funding; she was a Templeton Research Fellow in 2008).
Start at 20 minutes in if you want the meat. There’s a particularly good bit starting at 47:20.
