The Atheist Experience is an American live, weekly televised webcast based in Austin, Texas. Listeners—theists and atheists alike though theists are preferred—are encouraged to call in to discuss the existence of God and related topics. Calls from theists are usually given priority, as the aim of the webcast is to encourage theists to question their theistic beliefs and thus, theists are often asked to explain what they believe, and why. Following the webcast, each episode is made available on YouTube, as well as in an audio-only podcast format.

The Atheist Experience is a production of the Atheist Community of Austin (ACA), an educational non-profit organization based in Austin, Texas, which has as a central goal the promotion of positive atheism and the separation of church and state.[3]
