  • Episode 207 – Safe Spaces and CONvergence

    Connie-as-Redshirt-web-290x300Well, CONvergence is just a few days away and that means it is almost time for our birthday celebration!  For those that are new to our podcast, we debuted at CONvergence four years ago and it is a bit of a homecoming for all of us.  We spend a bit of time talking about what we’ll be doing at the convention this year but we also take a look at the question of safe spaces as it pertains to Vilification Tennis.  Does a convention that claims to be interested in creating safe spaces have an obligation to ensure that if something finds something offensive, it shouldn’t be allowed at all?  Obviously, we have some opinions!

    Come find us at the con this year!  We have badge ribbons!


  • Episode 206 – Utah Boners

    IMG_1686This week, we explore our latest geeky boners!  Tim took a big trip with his family and gets unnaturally excited about a lot of the stuff he saw including double arch, which was a filming location for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (pictured here).  Molly and Nick pretend to care.  Molly is playing a new Game of Thrones video game and loves it to death.  Nick is in the middle of a really good book by Joe Hill.  We also talk about CONvergence, which is coming up in just a couple of weeks!  We say it’ll be only one week because Tim still doesn’t know how to read a calendar.


  • Episode 205 – The Way of the Heathen

    Greta-christinaThis week, we are joined by Greta Christina, writer, blogger, and founder of The Orbit. Greta joined us to talk about her new book “The Way of the Heathen.”  The book was released on June 1st and it looks at how atheists live their lives without god.  Greta joined us remotely and things went pretty well.  There are a few places where the call got a little bit glitchy.  The book is a quick, easy read and available in just about every format you can imagine.  So pick up a copy and give Greta that legendary Geeks Without God bump!


  • Episode 204 – Book of Mormon

    015_AUS_1314_Season_LogosThis week, we are joined by Tim’s wife Pat Wick to discuss the Tony award winning musical “The Book of Mormon.”  The four of us went to see a touring production of the show and we share our observations about the show as well as some experiences during the show.  Is the play anti-Mormon?  Does it pull punches?  Is it funny?  Why did we wait so long to see it?  We answer very few of these questions but you will probably wish we had!  Pat, though, finally gets a shot at our NEW five questions and she DOES answer them!


  • Episode 203 – Civil War

    captain-america-civil-war-02082016This week, we take a spoiler laden look at the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Captain America: Civil War.”  We spend time comparing the film to the original storyline that took place in the comics. We all agree the film is very good but are maybe not quite as excited about it as other parts of the Marvel Universe.  We also all agree there is a wrong answer to the question #teamcap or #teamironman.  What is the wrong answer?  YOU SHOULD ALREADY KNOW!  Also – did we mention there are spoilers a-plenty?


  • Episode 202 – Theater and Paganism

    2546This week we have another live episode recorded at Die Laughing!  We sat down with Ariel Leaf, who is a actress, designer, and director in the Twin Cities.  We talk about her theater career and we also spent a little time exploring the pagan phase that all of us had in common.  The conversation covered a lot of ground and was very interesting.  Enjoy!


  • Episode 201 – Contemporary Christian Music

    Recorded live at the Bryant Lake Bowl for our 200th episode celebration, we are joined once again by Barb Abney and Jeremy Messersmith!  Jeremy was home schooled and has a lot of experience with Contemporary Christian Music so he brought in some samples for all of us to “enjoy”.  We get clips from Amy Grant, The Newsboys (who we discussed when we watched God’s Not Dead), and more!  Listen to our horrified responses to this amazing musical salute to Jesus.  To help cleanse our palette, Jeremy then performed his song “The Return of Jesus Christ” for the first time EVER! It was a whole lot of fun – or at least as fun as it can be when you are listening to Contemporary Christian Music.

     


  • Episode 200 – The Music of our Lives

    Our fabled 200th episode has arrived!  Recorded live on stage at the Bryant Lake Bowl, we are joined by Barb Abney and Jeremy Messersmith to talk about the mix tapes of our lives.  All five of us go through a list of songs that sort of tell a story about who we are.  There’s a lot of music and we probably should have put together playlists that we could link to but at this point, you should probably just go look all of this music up for yourself.  Unless you already own it.  Then good for you!

    Technical note: Molly’s microphone was going in and out during the recording of this episode so she can be a little difficult to hear.  For those of you who know Molly, it is definitely not because she is too quiet.

    We also launched our Patreon campaign the day we recorded this episode!


  • Episode 199 – Episode 199

    Geeks Without GodIn this week’s redundantly named episode, we take a look back at almost 200 episodes of Geeks Without God.  We talk about some of our favorite episodes, guests, and memories from nearly four years of podcasting.  We also take a look back at our original five questions to see how (and if) our answers have changed over the last several years.  It is a belly button gazing extravaganza where we take a look backwards before taking a look ahead!

    And hey!  Don’t you wish you could have listened to this episode last week? If you were a $2 supporter of our Patreon campaign, you could have! For just $24 a year, you get episodes as soon as Tim edits them, which is an average of a week early.  You’ll also help us improve the quality of our podcasts!


  • Episode 198 – Materialistic Boners

    q7watch4-500x500As we move closer to our fabled 200th episode, we have time to get in one last geeky boner episode (for now)!  Molly is super excited about her birthday and all the stuff she has gotten and will get to celebrate, including a new iWatch.  Nick is playing a whole lot of The Division.  And Tim is excited because in spite of his busy schedule, he wants to add something else to it!

    As you listen, please think about becoming a patron of our podcast.  We have some great plans for what we can do with your money and we promise we won’t tithe a single penny we make to the church.
