Mark Oppenheimer has a Ph.D. in religious studies and teaches at Yale. His magazine writing appears in The New York Times Magazine, GQ, and elsewhere. His Times Magazine stories have included a cover profile of Dan Savage, major pieces on urbanism and city life, and, most recently, a piece about Bart Campolo, the former evangelical preacher who has “come out” as an atheist and is now working to build the secular humanist movement. Oppenheimer has written about rock music for The Wall Street Journal, books for The Nation, and, for two years, about fatherhood for The New Republic. He is editor-at-large for Tablet, for which he also hosts the podcast Unorthodox—an irreverent, no-holds-barred weekly show about “the news of the Jews,” which has become the world’s most popular podcast on Jewish issues (over half a million downloads in two years).
