  • Episode 241 – Connectedness

    People NetworkThis week, our guest is Riki Robinson of the Tortuga Twins.  We’ve had his compatriot, Ronn Bauman, on our podcast numerous times so we felt we needed to spread the love.  Riki isn’t actually an atheist.  We don’t want to put words into his mouth, but he’s more of a deist.  Kind of.  He says he believes in “connectedness,” which is pretty cool as far as we’re concerned.  He’s also works with Islamic Relief USA and we talk about that.  If you want to hear more about that work, check out the podcast What a Relief!  He’s also the host of the Success Freaks podcast.  Enjoy!


  • Episode 240 – Schooling on the Road

    674d5574339105a988627de1c08ac771This week, we are joined by eleven time guest Ronn Bauman (he’s the one who brought it up)!  After listening to our episode about Home Schooling with Jeremy and Vanessa Messersmith, he has a chat with us about his experiences as he home schools his daughter on the road as a Renaissance Festival performer.  As one might expect, he doesn’t spend a lot of time on her religious studies.  But he makes a lot of other interesting decisions and it is a good insight into the options out there for those of us who are looking for non-traditional school options for our secular kids.


  • Episode 239 – Punching Nazis

    Adolf_Hitler_(Earth-81223)_from_What_If_Age_of_Ultron_Vol_1_4_0001This week, we are joined by frequent guest Eric Knight to discuss the hot topic of punching Nazis.  Is it OK to punch a Nazi?  If so, when is it OK?  As you might expect, we get a bit political here.  The sound issues we experienced with episode 238 continue with 239.  No wonder as we recorded both episodes back to back!  Again, we think we have sorted out the problem for now and things should sound better going forward.  We didn’t want to try to recapture the passion of this episode so we felt it was better if we posted it and we hope you can tolerate the poor audio.  If not, come back next week!


  • Episode 238 – Hamilton Boners

    photo-10This week, we take a look at some raging boners that all, surprisingly, relate back to the musical “Hamilton.”  In the cast of Molly, it doesn’t relate so much as it is actually “Hamilton.”  It is a pretty silly episode but we’ve gotta tell you, the audio is really bad.  There is a lot of skipping and repeating and, unfortunately, it’s all in the source file.  If you chose to listen and can handle the audio weirdness, we think you’ll like it.

    Tim is trying to figure out the problem.  He always watches the file as we record and these kinds of issues are not obvious.  Once the episode is recorded we either need to post it or give it up for lost.  We didn’t want to miss a week.

    So this episode and the next one are pretty choppy.  We are sorry and we’re going to figure out why this is happening so we can make sure it doesn’t happen again.


  • Episode 237 – DC Movies

    batman-v-superman-art-wbThis week, we take a look at Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad.  We have been pretty good at addressing most Marvel movies but we’ve fallen a little bit short when it comes to the DC side of the equation.  We gave both of these films a decent shot and, in the end, we really didn’t like either one of them.  We do our best to articulate why we think both of them fail so you, our atheist nerdy friends, will understand that we don’t hate DC.  We just hated these movies.  Sorry, Ronn.

    Note: There is some skipping on this episode.  We apologize for the technical errors.  Tim watches the recording as we are talking and it did not appear there were problems.  Nor is it the entire episode.  Just the really funny parts.  Sorry.


  • Episode 236 – Rogue One

    landscape-1460032284-star-wars-rogue-oneThis week, we take a look at the newest addition to the storied Star Wars franchise, Rogue One!  The film has been out for a while now but as is our tradition when we discuss nerdy movies, we spoil the shit out of everything.  If you are anxious to see the movie without spoilers, this is not the podcast for you!  Otherwise, listen on as we discuss our thoughts on this stand alone mission movie and where it ranks compared to other Star Wars films.  At least in our completely arbitrary opinion.


  • Episode 235 – Doctor Strange

    Benedict_Cumberbatch_as_Doctor_StrangeThis week, we are excited to welcome the co-screenwriter of Doctor Strange, C. Robert Cargill, back to Geeks Without God!  With a successful film on screen, Cargill can talk to us about the process of creating the film and some of the choices he and the other creators made to bring Strange to the screen.  It is, sadly, a conversation that only touches on what made the film work (at least for your humble hosts).  Cargill also gets to ask us five questions!


  • Episode 234 – Fuck 2016

    eff_2016_iconMost folks felt 2016 was a shit show of a year.  We pretty much agree.  For our first episode of 2017, we take a look back at the horror of 2016 and, yes, we finally talk about the election for a little while.  Not long.  It is likely we’ll have a great many more opportunities to talk about the it-would-be-a-bad-sitcom-if-it-wasn’t-actually-real Trump administration.  We look at movies, dead celebrities, and more.  We even talk about Debbie Reynolds as being alive even though the news of her death was breaking while we recorded the episode!

    PS:  Thanks to Vilification Tennis and Jessica Thompson for the art!


  • Episode 233 – Woo

    773157202247829319This week, we are joined by frequent guest Pat Wick, who wanted to talk about woo.  What is “woo,” you ask?  Well rationalwiki tells us it is a “term for pseudoscientific explanations.”  So stuff like homoeopathy, acupuncture, and magnet bands.  Basically all sorts of bullshit stuff that doesn’t work but people want to sell you anyway.  We all get pretty worked up about the topic so this episode is kind of long because we have THINGS TO SAY!  Once we are all done, Pat gets to ask us five questions!


  • Episode 232 – Xmas Movies

    Die-Hard-Christmas-Now-I-Have-a-Machine-Gun-Ho-Ho-Ho-642x362With Christmas just around the corner, we take an episode to discuss our favorite movies about the best secular holiday around!  We know – a lot of people don’t think it is a secular holiday but those of us without religion know that Christmas love everyone, no matter what they believe!  We have a good time talking about the movies we like to watch around this time of year.  If we hit on some of your favorites (or missed one), mention it in the comments!
