  • Episode 198 – Materialistic Boners

    q7watch4-500x500As we move closer to our fabled 200th episode, we have time to get in one last geeky boner episode (for now)!  Molly is super excited about her birthday and all the stuff she has gotten and will get to celebrate, including a new iWatch.  Nick is playing a whole lot of The Division.  And Tim is excited because in spite of his busy schedule, he wants to add something else to it!

    As you listen, please think about becoming a patron of our podcast.  We have some great plans for what we can do with your money and we promise we won’t tithe a single penny we make to the church.


  • Episode 197 – Daredevil Season 2

    1990This week we take a look at Season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix.  We take a look at their interpretation of The Punisher, Elektra, and The Hand with our resident Marvel comics expert, Mark Sherman.  As with episodes of this nature, we spoil the shit out of the show so if you haven’t watched it yet, you should wait on this episode until you’ve had a chance to enjoy the twists and turns of the season on your own time.  We’ll be here when you get back.

    And hey – we just launched a Patreon campaign.  We’d like to be able to improve our recording equipment, our web platform and maybe even take some road trips to places like the creation museum.  You can help!  For just $2 a month, you can get our episodes early!  If you’ve been enjoying our podcast, please consider supporting us.


  • Episode 196 – Love and Marriage

    12961564_10207513512109199_2359234324343271175_nThis week we were recording live from Die Laughing, a 50 hour comedy marathon.  Immediately prior to this episode, the three of us were privileged to participate in a unique improvised wedding ceremony as three of seven officiants. It was extremely silly.  We were then joined by the bride, regular guest Melissa Kaercher and her new husband, Fes.  We spend most of the episode talking about the wedding, which will probably make you wish you were there.

    Congratulations, Melissa and Fes!


  • Episode 195 – Joy and Death

    flat,800x800,070,fThis week we tackle the question of death and celebration.  As atheists, we view death as the end of existence.  Does it naturally follow that all death is a tragedy?  If we allow ourselves to feel some amount of pleasure in the death of someone we abhor, is that behavior abhorrent?  We start with some recent deaths and then look at some people whose deaths would, in general, be considered an absolute good.  Philosophy and ethics abound in this thoughtful episode.


  • Episode 194 – Prog Rock

    prlogosquare9This week, we have our second Vermin Kickstarter supporter – Mark Monforti!  Mark tells us a little bit about how a Catholic teacher turned him into an atheist and then we talk about Progressive (Prog) Rock!  Molly totally nerds out on this topic.  Nick and Tim do their best to keep up.

    Note: this episode was recorded remotely.  That means there is are a few weird pauses and instances where we talk over each other.  In a few spots, one of the speakers was silenced so the conversation flowed better.

  • Episode 194 – International Women’s Day Boners

    IMG_6337This week we have some more geeky boners to share!  Our recording took place on International Women’s Day so we try to come up with a lady parts equivalent to “geeky boner” and that takes a surprisingly long amount of time.  We also talk about Zootopia, Crazy Ex Girlfriend and some productivity and exercise apps the three of us are currently using.  And Tim takes off his wedding ring!  Scandal!!!!

    Take a look at the characters from Zootopia and from Robin Hood.  Coincidence????

     

     


  • Episode 193 – Caucusing

    rev_CAUCUSThis week we talk about our experiences at the Minnesota Presidential caucuses!  It was a chaotic mess but we took part in the Democratic process.  Tim stayed through the whole thing so he can talk a little more about how caucuses differ from primaries.  We also talk a little bit more about our political opinions and the ramifications of the recent death of Antonin Scalia.  Because we are twelve, we also make way too many obvious dick jokes.

     


  • Episode 192 – Growing up Secular

    warholbarbie2This week marks an exciting new era for Geeks Without God – we have our first remote guest! Felicity Kusinitz joins us all the way from Massachusetts via Skype and talks with us about growing up in a predominantly secular household and how that impacted her early encounters with religion.  She also gets to answer our five questions and there is a brief conversation about McRibs.  Because these things happen on our podcast for reasons best left unexplored.

    Note: There might be a few more long pauses in the podcast due to the delay using Skype to record.  Also, there are a couple times where we all start talking over one another because we didn’t realize someone else was still talking.  Overall, though, this is pretty exiting!  Our Australian listeners might be able to guest one day!

  • Episode 191 – Deadpool

    38876_104This week, we once again take a deep dive into spoiler territory with Deadpool! We cover all the facets of the movie we really enjoyed and make a lot of dirty jokes.  Because when you are talking about Deadpool, you really need to make a few dirty jokes.  ALSO, we announce some information about our upcoming 200th show!  You can come watch us record live onstage with a bunch of special guests.  We’ll probably break the fourth wall all over the place so it makes sense we’d use this episode to announce the big event.


  • Episode 190 – Disney vs. Universal

    Epcot-Vs-Universal-620x330This week, frequent guest Matt Allex joins us and he brought his son along.  Along with Tim the three of them go through the process of explaining the plusses and minuses of going to either Walt Disney World or Universal Studios when they have only one day to spend in Orlando.  Things go pretty well for a while until Matt’s son says something about Splash Mountain that he can’t take back.  Really, kid?  That’s what you think?  Well too bad for you that someone else writes the intros for these episodes!
