Dale McGowan – Naked Diner Ep 126

This week Jack and Andy talk with Dale McGowan about music (not Atheism, not Satan, not Foundation Beyond Belief, not any of that …. MUSIC), because music is Dale’s first love and the subject of his new podcast How Music Does That, which Dale describes as his “favorite parts of teaching” to get people excited about music and musicology.

McGowan graduated from University of California, Berkeley in 1986 with a double major B.A. in anthropology and music theory. In 1991 he received an MA in Instrumental Conducting from California State University, Northridge. In 1999 he received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in music theory and composition.

From 1991 to 2006, he was associate professor of music at St. Catherine University, a Catholic women’s college in Minneapolis/St. Paul. His experiences at the college are satirized in his 2002 novel Calling Bernadette’s Bluff and the 2010 sequel Good Thunder. In 2012 he began writing Atheism for Dummies for the popular For Dummies book series.

In 2014 McGowan became National Director of Ethical Education at the American Ethical Union and is a former director of engagement at the multi-faith website Patheos.
