  • 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 140 – Pratfalls of Atheism

    4b69d1f36462257020a88d256eebfa88This week’s episode was recorded live at Die Laughing 2015!  We sat down with Levi Weinhagen, who is something of a podcasting expert.  His current slate includes Pratfalls of Parenting, Regret Labs, and Reason Gone Mad.  He is also one of the minds behind the spectacularly funny Comedy Suitcase, a company devoted to making smart comedy that is accessible to all ages.  We talk with Levi about his podcasts and then get into the meat of our conversation – the challenges of being out as an atheist.  We also make a lot of inappropriate jokes about Bill Cosby.

  • Geeks Without God at Die Laughing

    0001069793_10Hey Everyone-

    Die Laughing is this weekend and our Geeks Without God schedule is all set to go!  All times are Central Standard Time.  You can come out to see us at the DoubleTree in Bloomington or you can stream us online!

    At 12:00 noon, we will be talking with comedian, podcaster, and writer Levi Weinhagen.  We’ll be talking with him about the baggage that comes with identifying as an atheist.

    At 9:0o PM, we will have Comic book writer Z.M. Thomas, writer of “The Bible 2″ and “Abe the Aborted Fetus.”  He will talk to us about his work and about a new project coming out soon!

    Remember, if we can raise $1000 by the end of our 9:00 podcast, the three of us will go to a Scientology center and be audited.  We will then record a podcast about our experience so you can all share in our pain!

    You can make an online contribution at dielaughingmarathon.com or in person at the event.

    ALSO, the silent auction will feature a guest spot on our podcast!  If you’ve ever wanted to be a guest but we just haven’t gotten around to asking you, come out and bid!  Last year, a few out of town folks made bids by proxy so we’ll be happy to help with that.


  • Episode 93 – Lady Parts and Gay Issues

    This week’s episode was recorded live at Die Laughing.  It features comedian Elizabeth Ess talking about the Supreme Court and Hobby Lobby.  They sell yarn, in case you didn’t know.  They also really don’t want to be “forced” to provide certain kinds of contraception to their employees.  While we were talking to Elizaabeth about serious legal issues, we were also trying to raise money for Fearless Comedy.  You can hear how we did on those challenges, if you didn’t already know.

    There is some editing of the podcast during times when we were having really exciting conversations with people in the back of the room.


  • There Might Be Pain

    We here at Geeks Without God have been partners with Fearless Comedy since their coming out party last January.

    In April, Fearless is going to do something truly crazy – a 50 hour comedy marathon!  From April 4th – 6th, they will make comedy happen non-stop.  And we’ll be there to help.

    We’ll be doing two live podcasts during the weekend.  The first will be on Friday, April 4th from 11:00Pm – Midnight.  Our scheduled guest is comedian Patrick Bauer.

    The second podcast will be from 1:00AM – 2:00 AM on Sunday, April 6th.  Our scheduled guest is comedian Elizabeth Ess.

    We hope you will join us for these events live or streaming on the web at the Die Laughing home page.  We also hope you will donate to Fearless Comedy.

    To that end, we have created a challenge for ourselves.  Our goal is to make $666 during our two live appearances.  If we do, we’ll do something horrible.  We even made a video about it.  Check this out!

    We can’t get the thing to embed so…shit.  The video is really funny but here’s the practical details:

    If we raise $333 over our two shows, Nick and Tim will shave their heads.  That weekend.  You’ll be able to see them being bald for the rest of the show.

    If we raise $666 over the weekend, we will go to Sunday services at Grace Megachurch in Eden Prairie and then record a podcast about our experience.  We will not attend the services as angry atheists.  We won’t wear buttons or T-shirts.  We will respectfully attend the service.

    Here is your chance to make Geeks Without God go to church!  Please join us in April and be prepared to give generously.


  • Listen to our Appearance on Atheists Talk!

    A couple of weeks ago, we were guests on the Atheists Talk Radio Program.  Our house was friend of the show Brienne Bilyeu.  We talked about the genesis of the podcast, some of our favorite episodes and all sorts of other fun stuff.  Want an mp3 of the show?  Done!

    If the player below doesn’t work for you, you can always find the episode on the Minnesota Atheists web site!

     

     

     


  • Episode 54 – Therefore Hitler

    For the second of our live CONvergence reocordings, we were joined by PZ Myers from FreethoughtBlogs. PZ has been sporting a Geeks Without God sticker on his iPad case since last year’s convention and we were excited we could finally thank him for taking our sticker all over the world.  We talked with PZ about the evidence for evolution and how you can establish a beachhead with Creationists. PZ, of course, was also asked our five questions.  Hard to believe he was able to give us only one answer when we asked him about the stupidest thing anyone has ever said to him about his atheism.  We could probably do an entire podcast with PZ about that one question.  Perhaps someday we shall.

  • Episode 53 – Arm Rest Etiquette

    Well, we managed to complete a full year of episodes without missing a single week.  This episode marks the beginning of our second year.  We celebrated our anniversary by bringing back our first guest, Melissa Kaercher and recording the show live at CONvergence 2013.  A packed room of geeks joined us as we talked about being raised in and out of faith and how that impacts our view of the world now.  Melissa also asked us five questions, one of which led to an extensive discussion about the proper etiquette of arm rest usage on airplanes and in movie theatres.

    Thanks to all of our listeners for a great first year!  We can’t wait for what will happen in year two!


  • CONvergence is here!

    Just in case you have missed the two podcasts in which we talked about CONvergence, we wanted to offer a quick rundown on places you can see all of us at the convention!

    All three of us will be in the Opening Ceremonies Sketch at 7:00 PM on Thursday, July 4th.  Opening ceremonies takes place on Main Stage so we’ve hit the BIG TIME!

    On Friday at 3:30, the three of us will be improvising conspiracy theories with our friend Jeremy Stomberg on It’s a CONspiracy!  That will be in Atrium 4.

    At 8:00 PM on Friday, we’ll be hosting the Fearless Comedy Room in room 224!  Stop in and try to win the Left Behind Board game, enjoy a specially selected Geeks Without God alcoholic treat and pledge to support Fearless Comedy Productions!

    And on Saturday at 5:00, we’ll be celebrating our one year anniversary by recording two live podcasts!  The first will be with our innauguarl guest, Melissa Kaercher and the second will be with noted atheist blogger PZ Myers!

    Of course all three of us will also be a part of Vilification Tennis on the Main Stage at 10:00 PM Saturday.  That is, of course, a very R rated show so if that isn’t your thing, we have no idea why you listen to our podcast!

    We’re also doing many other panels separately so if you want to know what we’re up to, here are links to Molly, Nick and Tim’s schedules!

    We hope to see you at the con!


  • Episode 48 – CONvergence 2013!

    This week we spend the entire episode geeking out about our favorite convention, CONvergence, where we recorded our first two episodes.  The convention starts exactly one month from the posting date of this episode! We try to talk about all the cool stuff we’ll be doing there this year but there is just too much.  We have to sum up.  If you’re interested in learning about the convention and finding out about opportunities to see us at the con, this is the episode to listen to!  Come join us for nerdy-gras!
