  • 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.

  • Episode 137 – Die Laughing Preview

    0001069793_10This week’s episode brings back guest Matt Allex from the Apropos of Nothing podcast.  Matt is one of our cohorts over at Fearless Comedy so he joined us to discuss the second annual installment of Die Laughing.  In addition to talking about all the cool stuff we’ll be doing at the event, we also announce this year’s fundraiser challenge and it is a doozy – if we can raise $1000 for Fearless, we’ll all get a Scientology audit!  Details are in the podcast but if you want to donate, links are below.

    If you follow the link to Die Laughing, you will see a donate button at the top right hand of the page.  Donations are accepted from now through the end of the event.  If you want to donate to our challenge, make sure you put a comment in your donation that it is for the Geeks Without God Scientology challenge.

     


  • Episode 100 – Grace Megachurch

    photo-7Wow!  We’ve made it to 100 episodes without a single week missed.  Take that all you podcasts that didn’t do that!  For our 100th episode, we went to Grace Evangelical Free Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.  We sat in the pews, watched and participated in the service, and then went back to Molly and Nick’s house to talk about the experience.  It was, to say the least, eye opening.  The podcast explores our responses to the service and to the people we saw there.

    We’d like to thank everyone who donated to Fearless Comedy Productions so we would be forced to attend this service.  We didn’t enjoy ourselves but at least Fearless made $666 off of our pain!

  • 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.


  • Episode 92 – Motherf**king Tarantino

    This week’s episode was recorded live at Die Laughing just a few short days ago.  We invited comedian Patrick Ryan Bauer on stage with us to talk about the films of Quentin Tarantino.  We didn’t just talk about Tarantino films, of course, because that would have involved the ability to stay on topic that none of the four of us possessed.  Not only did we have a great time talking with Patrick, we apparently offended someone so much, they asked for their money back with a statement somewhat akin to “I won’t stand for that sort of thing.”  That might not have been our fault.  But we choose to believe it was because we feel that would be kind of awesome.

    Note: This episode was recorded live so the sound quality might be different than you expect.  Change is good.

     


  • Oh God, We’re Going to Church

    10154934_10100814656908460_8505862338927593150_nThanks to the generous support of fans like you, the three of us were able to raise $666 for Fearless Comedy Productions this last weekend.

    As you may recall, Tim and Nick promised to shave their heads if we reached $333.  You an see photographic evidence we reached that goal.  In the twelve hours after their heads were shaved, no fewer than ten people didn’t recognize Tim.  One of those people was Molly.

    For $666, we promised to go to mass at Grace Church in Eden Prairie.  We are going to go attend quietly and respectfully.  We will not troll the church with atheist T-shirts or anything like that.  When we are done with the service, we’ll go home and record our 100th podcast about the experience.

    When we record the podcast, there is a decent chance we’ll be less than respectful.

    If you’d like to know more about the church, here’s what they believe.

    Thanks again for your generosity.  We may not be looking forward to going to church but at least we are suffering for a good cause!


  • Camp Quest Fundraiser: Huge Success!

    Thanks so much for your help in making this a success. With you, we were able to more than DOUBLE our goal, raising enough to sponsor two kids to Camp Quest Minnesota.

    You’re all amazing; we couldn’t have done it without you.

    Hopefully we’ll see some of you at the Die Laughing marathon, be sure to introduce yourself to us if you attend so we can thank you in-person!


  • Episode 52 – Public Bumming

    CONvergence is less than a week away and even though we’ve already spent an episode geeking out about the con, we decided to do it again!  This time we try to focus on what we love about the convention including some stories from past years and full details about the costumes that Molly and Nick plan to be wearing over the course of the weekend. There is also an unusual amount of discussion about anal sex for our podcast.  By “unusual,” we mean “more than none.”  We also read off five answers from a gay science teacher in Indiana.

  • Episode 45 – Politics and Atheism

    Way back in January, there was a silent auction at the Fearless Launch party.  One of the items up for bid was a guest spot on Geeks Without God.  Months later, we finally got the winner of the epic bidding war on the podcast.  Eric Jacobson, the big winner, joined us to talk about his experiences in local politics and we get to talking about what it will take to get atheists into a position where they can actually have an impact on the political process.  We also talked about the (then upcoming) historic vote for marriage equality in Minnesota. For his donation, of course, Eric also got a crack at our five questions.

  • Episode 28 – Rangers Like Buzz Lightyear

    This Weeks Episode was recorded live at the Fearless Comedy Launch party and featured local podcaster and comedian Aric McKeown.  Aric became a born again Christian in high school and we talk with him about what made him choose that path as well as how he found his way to atheism.  We also talk about his comedy podcast The Mustache Rangers. And, of course, he gets to answer our legendary five questions.  We also give a brief preview of next week’s episode!
