  • Episode 151 – Fury Road

    mad-max-fury-road-tom-hardy-charlize-theron-01This week, we spend some time gushing over Mad Max: Fury Road.  Obviously we spoil the movie pretty significantly.  Not that you can spoil much when the movie is basically a two hour car chase.  Sometimes you just have to admire a nerd film done right and Fury Road is most definitely that.  We also talk about whether or not it is a feminist movie.

  • Episode 150 – Ultron Boners

    Ultron_Empire_textlessHard to believe we have done this for 150 straight weeks but here we are!  This week features the three of us talking about our latest geeky hard-ons and making dick jokes.  Must be a geeky boners episode!  Tim talks about a play he wants everyone to watch, Molly talks about her job and Nick addresses the spectacle that is Avengers: Age of Ultron.  We also very briefly celebrate our 150th episode.  We didn’t have cake.  So that sucked.

    If you want to know more about Tim’s show, “Jenny Bandage vs. The Unpronounceable A.K.R.O.N.Y.M,” you can go to the Fearless Comedy web site.  Tickets are available for pre-sale at Brown Paper Tickets.

  • Tim and Nick on Atheists Talk

    In case you missed Tim and Nick’s appearance on Atheists Talk this week, we have a copy of the show so you can listen NOW!  They were part of a panel of atheist and skeptic podcasters from the Twin Cities and spent most of their time talking about how Molly wasn’t there.


  • Episode 149 – Daredevil

    daredevilThis week, we bring in Marvel expert Mark Sherman to talk about the Netflix Daredevil series.  We don’t know if you’ve seen it yet but we all really liked it and think you should give it a try.  If you haven’t seen it, please be aware this is one of those “spoil the shit out of everything” episodes.  You’ve been warned!

    Also, today is Tim’s 25th wedding anniversary.  We didn’t mention it on the episode or anything but it’s kind of important.  To him anyway.


  • Episode 148 – Doubt

    doubt_diceThis week, we are joined by our friend Bill Stiteler, who is an agnostic.  We talk with Bill about doubt and the question of whether or not we can ever be really certain if god does or does not exist.  As usual, we get sidetracked and talk about a whole lot of other stuff because it isn’t like we can stay on topic.  Or maybe we can.  Who really knows for sure?


  • Episode 147 – Atheism on CNN

    0033fec1_mediumIn case you missed it, a few weeks ago CNN aired a special report on atheists entitled Atheists: Inside the World of Nonbelievers. We watched the special report, took notes and then sat down to share a small percentage of those notes with our listeners.  Parts of the report we just fine.  Other parts were annoying.  Overall, it was a mixed bag.  Keeping in mind that it was made to help believers understand the world of those who do not, we thought it was definitely worth the watch.

  • Episode 146 – Stealth Atheism

    10885180_10153063462703083_3140499189187810927_nThis week our guest is Claire Alexander, who is a sign language interpreter for the Deaf.  As part of her job, she is expected to act as a conduit for her client and that means she needs to communicate for them without making her own opinion known.  We talk to her about how that works when she is interpreting for someone who believes in something vastly different than she does.


  • The Nihilist Inning

    Hi there GWG fans!  Just thought you might enjoy this audio comedy written by Tim and featuring both Molly and Tim on voice work.  Also featured are friends of the show Charles Hubbell, Windy Bowlsby and Geoffrey Brown as well as Dawn Krosnowski and Don Cosgrove.  Sound effects were also provided by friend of the show Salsa Sterling.

    This script was presented as part of Big Fun Radio Funtime in March and since Baseball season just opened, it seemed appropriate to post it.  Tim wrote this thinking “I don’t believe in god, but I *do* believe in hot dogs.”

    Thanks to Jerry Stearns for some great post production work!


  • Episode 145 – Scientology

    scientologycultYou, dear listeners, paid for this episode!  As a result of your generous donations, all three of us visited the Scientology center in downtown St. Paul and took their personality test.  It might surprise you to learn that all three of us had problems only Scientology could solve!  Other than that, our experiences were surprisingly different.  We hope you enjoy our conversation about the world of Xenu!  By the way – if the three of us disappear in the near future, you’ll know why!

  • Episode 144 – Path to Enlightenment

    6837071_origThis week, we are joined once again by Charles Hubbell, who takes us on a spiritual journey.  We start with Catholicism, work through born again Christianity, Buddhism and finally we find our way to atheism.  Along the way, we talk about Chiropractic medicine, miracle berriess and Tim’s stripper name.  Is it any wonder this ended up being our longest episode ever?  And that’s even after we edited out Molly’s pee break!
