* [[NiceGuy Nice Guys]]: Another key difference between ''Talk Heathen'' and ''The Atheist Experience'' is that the hosts are more cordial with the theist callers and actively want to meet them where they were at. That doesn't mean that their patience hadn't been tested.

** Nindo, a supporter of the presupposition argument, is an abrasive caller, so much so, he was banned from calling into the show. Not that it stopped him from trying to call into the show with different guises.

* TooDumbToLive: Nindo tries to slip past his ban by pretending to be named [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5IdwaG3PgE Levi]] only to expose himself and get predictably dropped.

Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: Hell is seen as this since, as the hosts point out, a punishment is meant to be a learning experience. Hell, however, is an eternal punishment devoid of a chance for those sent there to learn from their mistakes.


Added DiffLines:

* HellOfAHeaven: In one episode, Eric asks a caller if he'd be happy in Heaven knowing that those he knew personally were suffering in Hell simply for not believing in God.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodAtheist: Much like other shows in the ACA, one of ''Talk Heathen's'' objectives is to subvert the assumption that most people become atheists because of being angry at God.
* {{Jerkass}}: Quite a few callers up to and including:
** Hamish, who constantly tries to catch the hosts in a logical trap and deliberately speaks slowly to kill time.
** EF, otherwise universally known as Darth Dawkins, is an irritable KnowNothingKnowItAll who vehemently tries to bend the talk show to his whims and is dismissive of the hosts oftentimes desiring to speak uninterrupted.

Added DiffLines:

* EasyEvangelism: Many callers try to pull this on the hosts to no avail.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Most of the hosts, such as Eric Murphy, are considerably nicer than their counterparts from ''The Atheist Experience'', but if given the circumstance, they can swiftly become angered. One example is when a repeat caller called into the show to discuss [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0qVSu_Gh_k bible codes]] only for Eric to become incensed when the caller attempted to claim that he had the right information, but others did not due to them "being afraid."

* FlatEarthAtheist: Much like ''Atheist Experience'', they are often accused of being this, though the response more often than not amounts to if a god appears to them, they would no longer be an atheist, but it would not mean that they would worship them.
