This episode we interview Kristin Wintermute, Executive Director of the Humanist Institute about their mission and educational program.

In August 1982, forty-five humanist leaders gathered at the University of Chicago to form the North American Committee for Humanism.  This new alliance was a response to the urgent need to defend humanism against the assaults of its adversaries and to find an effective way to bring the message of humanism to a wider public.  At this meeting the committee voted to establish the The Humanist Institute.  Since that time, fourteen classes have graduated from the program, providing over a 100 skilled leaders to the humanist community and the larger world.

This is particularly interesting for interviewer Han Hills as he is to join class 18 later this year.
