In this week’s episode, we talk with our friend Porter about recent protests in the Middle East. We spend a lot of time talking about Islam – the first show in which we’ve spent a lot of time talking about that particular faith. We talk about the idea of wanting to kill someone in the name of what amounts to an imaginary friend and we get pretty riled up about it. Then Porter answers our five questions and when he gets to his sandwich, we get riled up about that too. Because who doesn’t get riled up about BACON? Except Nick, of course, because he can’t eat bacon. Oh well…more for the rest of us.
Show notes below the fold:
In case you don’t know anything about “The Innocence of Muslims,” here is a link. It’s only 13 minutes long and about the worst filmmaking you’ll ever see.
We talked about some information Neil Gaiman posted about the situation on his blog.
We also talked about atheists being arrested for their views in other countries. This is a link to a petition working to help free Alber Saber, an atheist who was arrested in Egypt during the riots.
For more information about the films we discussed during the five questions, here’s a link to their IMDB pages:
And finally, here’s a picture of Porter’s deep fried bacon (in the colander on the right)!
