  • Episode 160 – Making Tabletop Sausage

    imagesFor this week’s episode, we were joined once again by comedian Joseph Scrimshaw!  Joseph recently appeared on Tabletop with Wil Wheton and we wanted to talk to him about what it was like making reality show sausage. He tells us how he found himself on the series and all about what it was like to produce an episode.  He also gets a crack at our brand new five questions!


  • Episode 159 – Transgender in the News

    caitlyn-jenner-joins-twitterThis week we are joined once again by Miranda Richards.  She recorded with us in the luxurious hotel room studios at CONvergence 2015.  With all the big GLBT news including Caitlyn Jenner and the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, we decided to talk about that for the majority of the podcast.  However, Miranda was also one of the first people to answer our new five questions!

    P.S: Tim identifies Miranda as “Miranda Richardson” in the opening credits.  Because he’s a dolt.

  • Episode 158 – Goodbye Buffalo

    San-Francisco_Top-10For our second episode recorded live at CONvergence, we sat down with our good friend Rebecca Watson to talk about her move from Buffalo to San Francisco.  In case you’re wondering, she is pleased with the choice.  We only had about 25 minutes so we barely scratched the surface of the awesomeness of San Francisco.  Once we finished the with the San Francisco love fest, we gave Rebecca the first shot at answering our BRAND NEW five questions! What??? Something on Geeks Without God has changed?  Anyway, Rebecca is funny and charming and you should listen for those reasons alone.  The new questions are just a bonus.

  • Episode 157 – Evangelism and Death

    jennifer_ouelletteIn the first of our flurry of podcasts recorded at CONvergence 2015, we hosted Guest of Honor Jennifer Ouellette!  Jennifer is a science author and blogger and we talked to her about being brought up in an evangelistic home.  We also talked about how her family processed her brother’s death and the differences between the atheist experience and the deeply religious experience of her parents.  It’s a three hanky Geeks Without God and that doesn’t happen very often!

  • Episode 156 – Puppet Robot Scientists

    23031_1_largeThis week, our guest is star of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Trace Beaulieu!  We get to talk to him about the origins of MST3K and his new series on Yahoo, Other Space.  He also talks a bit about Vermin, which is a project he is working on with Tim.  Look for Trace and Tim at CONvergence this weekend where they will be re-launching their Kickstarter. It launches this Saturday so help them out!

  • Episode 154 – CONvergence 2015

    Connie-as-Redshirt-web-290x300This week, we take a look at all the stuff we’ll be doing at CONvergence 2015 and boy, it’s a lot.  If you somehow miss us at the convention, it is because you are actively avoiding us.  We have a really packed schedule and we spend most of the episode telling you about what we have going on at the convention.  We also read five answers from a listener.  Sharp eared listeners might hear an edit and that’s only because there is one.  We aren’t going to tell you what we edited.  Please provide us your conspiracy theories in the comments!

    Want to know our schedules?  We can do that!

    Here’s a schedule for Molly.

    Here’s one for Nick.

    And one for Tim.

  • Episode 108 – Atheist Comedians

    imagesThis week we are joined by our good friend Joseph Scrimshaw.  Joseph is a professional comedian and we have noticed over the time we’ve been recording this podcast that there seem to be a large number of comedians who are atheists and agnostics.  While we completely fail to provide any data supporting this theory, we talk about it anyway.  We also talk about some religious comedians and how Tim has watched them and doesn’t think they are very funny.  As a repeat guest, Joseph also asks us five exciting and very important questions!  Please note there is a wonderful opportunity for some new fan art at the end of the episode.  Go to town people!

  • Episode 106 – Game of Thrones

    iron_throne_by_twilight5694-d5a8hbj-e1357180993266The second episode recorded live at CONvergence 2014.  Our guest was Rebecca Watson, who joined us way back in Episode 4.  It may have taken us over 100 episodes to get her back but the wait was worth it as we try to cram as much Game of Thrones geekery into 30 minutes as we possibly can.  Because we talk books and TV series, it is fair to say that we don’t get very far.  Even so, a spoiler warning is certainly warranted.  Once we ran out of time to talk Game of Thrones, Rebecca had five questions for us to answer.  One of them made her giggle a lot.

  • Episode 105 – Jessica Fletcher is a Serial Killer

    jessicafletcherToday’s episode was recorded live at CONvergence 2014.  We even got the audience to sing our theme song.  Our guest was Raychelle Burks, better known as Dr. Rubidium!  Ray is a chemist so we spent the entire episode talking about Chemistry!  Actually that was the plan.  We ended up spending quite a bit of time talking about “Murder, She Wrote.”  We did eventually get to Chemistry, though, so if that’s your thing, just hang in there.  Ray also got a crack at our five questions.

    It’s a little early but we are all excited because we have had a look at our schedules for CONvergence and we want to talk about our plans for the convention.  While schedules are subject to change, this episode covers what we’re looking forward to at the con this year as well as some costume plans Nick and Molly are putting together.  We also spill some information about the live podcast we’ll be doing at the convention! If you aren’t going to CONvergence, we hope that you feel really bad about it after listening to this show!
