Have you heard of the Secular Jihadists podcast? http://secularjihadists.libsyn.com/
Ex-Muslims talking about their lives, and I personally find it very interesting.
this is a great podcast i would like to point at episode 22 where they talk about Raif Badwi whom is sentenced for 10 years for his great forum "the saudi liberal network" and this is what we suffer from in saudi arabia the suppression of freedom of expression and criticism. thanks mate

According to SBS last night , there is a secret society of Ex-Muslims in Australia. having heard of what happens to ex-muslims in the UK, I'm not surprised they want to be secret.
