  • Episode 276 – Joshua Humphrey is the Law

    ufynR8cD9EPk2CYbDEMDSF-480-80It has been quite some time since we have been joined by Joshua Humphrey on our podcast. In that time, he has attended and graduated law school. So we sat him down to talk about law school in these interesting times. He hasn’t passed the bar yet so we can’t call him our resident lawyer. But when he does pass the bar, we are definitely going to start doing so.  Joshua also gets to answer our newest set of five questions!


  • Episode 274 – Dating Christians

    christian-dating-etiquetteWe have one more episode recorded in the trailer studio on a hot September day!  Speaking of hot, we get together with our friend Nathan Gerber to talk about his experiences dating Christians. He’s dated outside his lack of faith a lot and has some good tips on how to have a relationship with someone who believes something you really don’t.


  • Episode 273 – Evil Demon Queen and the Dick Missiles

    6uFyKThis week, we return to the luxurious trailer studios to revisit Christian privilege with frequent guest Tony Miller.  We take a look at the current state of politics in our country as it pertains to Christian power as well as taking a look at how online interactions tend to favor those with religion.  We also come up with a great name if Molly ever becomes the lead singer of a death metal band. Tony also gets a crack at our newest set of five questions!


  • Episode 272 – Saving Christmas

    v1.bjs0NzcyNDM7ajsxNzQ2NTsxMjAwOzk5Mjs1NTgUgh.  We are joined once again by our good friends Ronn Bauman, Byron Miller, and Tony Miller to watch another Christian apologist film.  This time it is Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas.  We thought the movie might be more fun than our previous experiences with the God’s Not Dead series.  Wow were we wrong.  Cameron blamed atheists for the failure of this film.  He really should have blamed himself. Is every Christian apologetic film this bad?  There have to be some good ones, right?  We’ll keep looking because this wasn’t it.  As a bonus, we subjected Ronn’s daughter and Tim’s son to the entire horrific affair.  Their responses are more eye-opening than you would expect.  Just stay away, friends.  Stay away.


  • Episode 271 – Blind Spots

    AAEAAQAAAAAAAAbnAAAAJDBiZTVjYTFjLTVhYzQtNDBmNi04ZjBmLTQzNTU2MmVjNjY5MAWe are joined by regular guest Ronn Bauman inside the beautiful trailer studios to talk about Blind Spots.  What are things that we all simply refuse to see an understand about ourselves and the world around us.  In a political climate that seems designed to create blind spots, how do we become aware of them enough to avoid them? Ronn also gets a crack at our newest set of five questions!

    This week, we talk to our friend Melissa Kaercher and Laurie Richardson Sweep about their trip to Wyoming to watch the recent solar eclipse.  We learn all about their experiences at a truck stop with extra eclipse glasses, some eclipse scalpers, and pie.  If you didn’t manage to experience the totality for yourself, you can live vicariously through our guests!  We even learn what a “diamond ring” is (spoiler – look at the picture on the post for the episode). Laurie and Melissa also both get a crack at our new five questions!


  • Episode 268 – John Dick Winters

    38_EdpFor this week’s episode, we are joined by Pittsburgh comedian John Dick Winters.  He was on tour and contacted us about appearing on our podcast.  We said yes because it meant we didn’t have to do nearly as much work.  John talks to us about how he came to atheism and his twin daughters, who were exposed to evangelical thinking as they were growing up but ended up atheists anyway.

    You can find John on all the social media like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.


  • Episode 266 – God and Evolutionary Psychology

    brainThis week’s episode features guest Matthew Kessen.  Matt is a monster expert so naturally, he came on the podcast to talk about evolutionary psychology and how that ties into the possible benefits of religion.  We spend the podcast mostly listening to Matt talk about all the reasons humans are kind of wired to believe in god.  Belief in god and the development of religion may have been unavoidable offshoots of the evolution of our brain.  Or not.  What the hell do we know?  As you will hear, we clearly don’t know as much as Matt.


  • Episode 263 – Life After Death and Austria

    main-thumb-t-18145-200-vVlpOpOFKDnRmNEBrxSzORsf2E7S48fiThis week’s episode was recorded live at CONvergence 2017 for our fifth birthday!  We are joined by frequent guest Joseph Scrimshaw who tells us all about his work with a video game company in Austria.  We also talk about the idea of what we’d like to see in an afterlife and our concerns with the concept of an afterlife segregated into good and evil.  You may also hear an occasional word or two from Laura Okagaki-Vraspir!  We don’t totally remember.  We had cake flavored vodka.
