  • Episode 236 – Rogue One

    landscape-1460032284-star-wars-rogue-oneThis week, we take a look at the newest addition to the storied Star Wars franchise, Rogue One!  The film has been out for a while now but as is our tradition when we discuss nerdy movies, we spoil the shit out of everything.  If you are anxious to see the movie without spoilers, this is not the podcast for you!  Otherwise, listen on as we discuss our thoughts on this stand alone mission movie and where it ranks compared to other Star Wars films.  At least in our completely arbitrary opinion.


  • Episode 235 – Doctor Strange

    Benedict_Cumberbatch_as_Doctor_StrangeThis week, we are excited to welcome the co-screenwriter of Doctor Strange, C. Robert Cargill, back to Geeks Without God!  With a successful film on screen, Cargill can talk to us about the process of creating the film and some of the choices he and the other creators made to bring Strange to the screen.  It is, sadly, a conversation that only touches on what made the film work (at least for your humble hosts).  Cargill also gets to ask us five questions!


  • Episode 234 – Fuck 2016

    eff_2016_iconMost folks felt 2016 was a shit show of a year.  We pretty much agree.  For our first episode of 2017, we take a look back at the horror of 2016 and, yes, we finally talk about the election for a little while.  Not long.  It is likely we’ll have a great many more opportunities to talk about the it-would-be-a-bad-sitcom-if-it-wasn’t-actually-real Trump administration.  We look at movies, dead celebrities, and more.  We even talk about Debbie Reynolds as being alive even though the news of her death was breaking while we recorded the episode!

    PS:  Thanks to Vilification Tennis and Jessica Thompson for the art!


  • Episode 233 – Woo

    773157202247829319This week, we are joined by frequent guest Pat Wick, who wanted to talk about woo.  What is “woo,” you ask?  Well rationalwiki tells us it is a “term for pseudoscientific explanations.”  So stuff like homoeopathy, acupuncture, and magnet bands.  Basically all sorts of bullshit stuff that doesn’t work but people want to sell you anyway.  We all get pretty worked up about the topic so this episode is kind of long because we have THINGS TO SAY!  Once we are all done, Pat gets to ask us five questions!


  • Episode 232 – Xmas Movies

    Die-Hard-Christmas-Now-I-Have-a-Machine-Gun-Ho-Ho-Ho-642x362With Christmas just around the corner, we take an episode to discuss our favorite movies about the best secular holiday around!  We know – a lot of people don’t think it is a secular holiday but those of us without religion know that Christmas love everyone, no matter what they believe!  We have a good time talking about the movies we like to watch around this time of year.  If we hit on some of your favorites (or missed one), mention it in the comments!


  • Episode 231 – Elementary Boners

    lvbuffy20f-3-webOur geeky units are engorged and we need to podcast some relief!  This week, Tim and Molly are both taking long, hard looks at some television shows and Nick is talking about an operation.  We don’t want to spoil the episode but Nick’s operation is super appropriate given this is a geeky boner episode.  Wink Wink.  We also read off another listener’s answers to our five questions!


  • Episode 230 – The Faithless Feminist

    Basic RGBThis week, we are joined my remote guest Karen Garst to discuss her book “”  We had a really great conversation about why she put the book the book together and about many of the women who contributed their stories.  Please note that on this particular recording, we encountered some audio issues on our end.  You can still understand everything but there is a bit of an echo.  Hooray for technology!  We linked to Karen’s book on Amazon above.  You can also purchase it through her website, The Faithless Feminist.

    It is a very good read and we recommend you check it out!

  • Episode 229 – Cripple Talk

    invacare-forearm-crutches-842For this week’s episode, we sat down with our friend Timmy Iverson, AKA “Timmy the Cripple.”  We talk to him about living with a disability and how many times someone has tried to lay hands on him.  It is an enlightening conversation about how one’s life experiences can be quite different when you have a visible handicap.  It is also a great example of how some people have absolutely no boundaries. Timmy is totally cool with being called a cripple, by the way. He likes it.

     


  • Episode 228 – The Atheist Delusion

    dvd_the-atheist-delusion-300x300Back on Sunday the 6th of November, the three of us joined Brianne Bilyeu on Atheists Talk radio to discuss Ray Comfort’s film The Atheist Delusion.  You can listen to that episode here.  Thing is, we couldn’t swear (full disclosure – Nick swore).  And this is a movie that completely deserves some serious time devoted to swearing.  If you want to watch the movie, you can see it for free on YouTube.  We want to be really clear, though: You don’t want to watch it.  Here’s a link, but don’t watch it.  Listen to us bitch about it.  That should be enough.


  • Episode 227 – Omegacon Games 2016

    castles-mad-king-ludwig-board-gameWe just spend the weekend playing board games at OmegaCon!  We’ve talked about the con several times before.  It’s a chill relaxacon in rural Wisconsin.  Pretty much, everyone spends the weekend wearing pajamas and playing board games.  As is our tradition, we sat down at the end of the con to discuss some of our favorite gaming experiences from the weekend.  You might just be inspired to try out something we played! A few highlights: The Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Dream House, and A Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne.
