  • Episode 165 – The Satanic Temple

    0MEchYtThis week, we are joined by John Wreisner, Minneapolis chapter head of the Satanic Temple. We talk about the mission and ideals of the Satanic Temple, which are actually pretty cool.  We also learn a lot about some seriously messed up shit taking place in a Minnesota School district.  John was a really great guest and this episode is really terrific.  We hope to work with him and The Satanic Temple  in the future!

    Note: There is some weird stuff going on with the sound on this one.  I’m not sure what caused it but I’ll be looking into it so it will not become an issue on future podcasts!  Sorry if you have trouble understanding anything! – Tim

    Here is a link to their Facebook page!


  • Episode 163 – Bible TriBond

    $_35Good friend and frequent guest Brianne Bilyeu was at a garage sale recently and she came across an unopened copy of Bible TriBond.  Knowing, as she does, our interest in lame Christian board games, she bought the game and gave it to us as a gift.  We re-gifted her by having her join us for a podcast where we play the game!  TriBond, by the way, is not the best designed board game to begin with.  When you slap the Bible on top of it, it doesn’t get better.  While by no means as awful as Left Behind: The Board Game, we certainly can’t recommend this game to anyone.  And we aren’t just saying that because we’re atheists.  If you want to borrow the game to try it out yourself, though, Tim still has it.  For now.


  • 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 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!

    Go check out her website and buy her books!


  • 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 152 – When Kids ask Questions

    10344812_10152836903433155_4426762725123735037_nThis week we are joined by comedian, improvisor, and dad Joe Bozic.  We talk about dealing with questions like “is there a god” and trying to explain religious holidays in a secular household.  We also talk about comedy because that’s the sort of thing that happens when you get three comedians (and Tim) in a room together.

    Here’s a link to Joe’s Tumblr.


  • Episode 146 – Stealth Atheism

    10885180_10153063462703083_3140499189187810927_nThis week our guest is Claire Alexander, who is a sign language interpreter for the Deaf.  As part of her job, she is expected to act as a conduit for her client and that means she needs to communicate for them without making her own opinion known.  We talk to her about how that works when she is interpreting for someone who believes in something vastly different than she does.


  • Episode 144 – Path to Enlightenment

    6837071_origThis week, we are joined once again by Charles Hubbell, who takes us on a spiritual journey.  We start with Catholicism, work through born again Christianity, Buddhism and finally we find our way to atheism.  Along the way, we talk about Chiropractic medicine, miracle berriess and Tim’s stripper name.  Is it any wonder this ended up being our longest episode ever?  And that’s even after we edited out Molly’s pee break!


  • Episode 143 – Awkward Family Moments

    DanceDevil2This week we have another episode recorded at Die Laughing.  After the Epic Lip Sync battle, we sat down with dancer, choreographer, and improvisor Erin Sheppard to talk about those awkward family moments that arise when you are an atheist.  We discuss things like being asked to lead prayer, talking about shows with religious themes and other awkward experiences that are common to being a non-believer in a world of believers.  Of course, Erin also gets a crack at our five questions!
