  • 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!

  • Episode 55 – CONvergence Wrap-Up

    1074728_10201522778977559_322258114_oWe had a great time at CONvergence 2013 and we wanted to take some time to tell some stories from the weekend.  If you check the show notes, you will find links to a lot of different panels you may have missed because you were doing other stuff at the convention or you didn’t actually go to the convention.  It was a great year for all of us.  We look forward to next year’s con and to another year of Geeks Without God!  We also look forward to your favorite CONvergence stories!  Please share in the comments! We also read off Robin Raianiemi’s answer to our five questions.  Her movie selection sounds positively awesome!

  • 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!
