I'm talking about proton-electron romantic relationships on Australian public radio

Here I am discussing "Divine Fine-Tuning vs. Electrons in Love" with Joe Gelonesi of The Philosopher's Zone! It's downloadable as a podcast if you'd like to listen that way.

The paper is about how the metaphysical possibility of romantic relationships between otherworldly protons and electrons defeats the fine-tuning argument for God's existence. It's now out in APQ. That and "Possible Girls", also discussed in the interview, are my contributions to discussion of metaphysically interesting romantic relationships. I didn't expect that it'd be such a media-friendly topic when I started working on it, but it kind of makes sense.
