  • Episode 188 – All the Podcasting

    71d1aad089fa51b525316bb37dab8718This week, we are joined by guest Evan Pederson of the Fancy Pants Gangsters podcasting network.  He has been podcasting for a long time and he talks with us about some of the shows he has produced.  After a little while, though, we just start talking about all sorts of different things but we’re gonna say this podcast is about podcasting.  But it’s about a lot more than that.  You should listen.


  • Episode 187 – Politics!

    PoliticsWith the caucus/primary season coming up, we spent this week talking about politics!  As you probably expect, the three of us are fairly progressive so much of our conversation centers around the Hilary Clinton/Bernie Sanders camps.  There is actually a fair amount of disagreement there.  We do spend a little bit of time talking about our reasons for rejecting the Republican party and it has a lot to do with our non-religious roots.  So if you are a conservative listener – that’s cool.  But you might want to check back in with us next week.

    Show notes below the fold:

Tim and Molly have a couple of mini boners to share and Nick has a gigantic boner for the spring slate of TV shows coming out.  Meanwhile, Tim is looking at maps and molly is playing Tomb Raider.  Because we’re geeks.  It’s right there in the title of the podcast.


  • Episode 185 – GMOs

    635831413901537734-183607684_gmo-1This week, we welcome back our first ever guest, Melissa Kaercher!  Melissa gets together to talk with us about GMO crops, Monsanto, pesticides, and organic foods.  We navigate the tricky waters of not liking Monsanto while recognizing that we should hate them for stuff they actually DO rather than stuff we THINK they do.  It’s a lot to cram into a 30ish minute podcast but we do our best!

    Disclaimer: While Melissa works for General Mills, she is not appearing on the podcast as a representative of the company and her opinions are her own.  Please don’t sue us.


  • Episode 184 – Spoilers!

    filepicker-8w8n1fNFQ4iomLKdZRJ8_SpoilerThis episode, we talk about spoilers.  Don’t worry – we don’t spoil anything for you.  At least not much of anything.  Instead, we talk about the concept of spoilers and what the protocol should be around them.  When is it OK to stop worrying about spoiling something for someone?  And what constitutes a spoiler anyway?  Seriously – we do talk spoilers on a few recent movies and TV shows (including Game of Thrones and Star Wars) so if you don’t want us to spoil anything for you, we’ll catch you next week!

    We talk about John Kovalic’s spoiler blame game post so here’s a link!

  • Episode 181 – A Star Wars Christmas

    star-wars-the-force-awakens-poster-05_493.0You may have heard about a big geek movie that was released this week.  And no, we aren’t talking about Chipwrecked. You might as well know now that we spoil the ever loving hell out of The Force Awakens.  We’ve warned you here and we’ll warn you again at the beginning of the podcast.  Then we’ll get into it and we will seriously spoil everything!  So if you still haven’t see the film, take a break from our podcast and GO SEE THE MOVIE!  Then come back and listen to the three of us engage in a calm and thoughtful geekgasm about the movie.


  • Episode 180 – Cult Living

    Waco_Branch_Davidians_FlagThis week, we sit down with our friend Kyle Dekker to discuss his experiences growing up in some creepy cult-like churches. Among other things, he was a Branch Davidian!  He even learned how to pretend to speak in tongues.  These days he’s managed to break free from that craziness and he makes internet videos like Super Academy.  We have a far reaching conversation with him and then give him a crack at our new five questions!

     


  • Episode 179 – Terrorism

    IMG_6289Note: This episode was recorded prior to the attack in San Bernadino, California last week.

    This week, the three of us sit down and talk domestic and international terrorism.  We talk about racism and how we have difficulty identifying white people as terrorists.  We also look at the question of whether or not some actions of the anti-abortion movement can be defined as terrorism.   We look at mental illness as a scapegoat as well.  So it’s pretty serious over here in the basement studios.
