Richard Dawkins, Francis Collins at "Fresh Air"
"Fresh Air" with Terry Gross at National Public Radio (NPR).
Two separate interviews, repeats from about a year ago.
Richard Dawkins: An Argument for Atheism - 28 minutes.
Francis Collins: A Scientist's Case for God - 11 minutes.
See "Listen Now" below speaker and title.
The entire show can be downloaded as an MP3 here. This may not be available for long.
I thought both were quite good.
Added by edit on 3/12/08: The above links are apparently only good until the next "Fresh Air" happens. The MP3 is now gone, but the other feed in now available at Page Not Found : NPR.
Edited by Minnemooseus, : Added updated audio link in green block.
