At the end of each podcast, we ask our guests five questions. We encourage listeners to send in their own answers and we’ll read them whenever we are doing a host only episode. The questions have changed and will probably change again but here are our current five questions:
1) What is a movie you will stop and watch any time it is on?
We aren’t asking you for a favorite movie (though it may be). Rather, we want to know what movie can draw you in no matter how many times you’ve seen it.
2) What is your Geekiest or most prized possession?
You know you own something awesome that everyone else wants. What is it?
3) Which Supernatural or all powerful being do you wish was real?
You can refer to historical deities (Thor, Zeus) or fictional ones (Cthulhu). Yes, we recognize that Thor is also fictional. Work with us here.
4) Say Religion is gone. What is the biggest problem that now faces humanity?
This question does not presume that Religion is the biggest problem facing humanity. A theist might answer this question by saying “the absence of religion.” An atheist may think religion is a big problem but still not as big as climate change. On the other hand, if religion is out of the equation, it is possible women’s rights would make huge advances. Interesting hypothetical, right?
5) What is your favorite quote?
Make sure you source it correctly! Or at least pretend you did.

Note: below are our original five questions in case you want to reminisce about the old days.
1) What is the best movie you’ve seen in the last thirty days?
This can be in the movie theater or at home, on Netflix or DVD. It can be the first time you’ve watched something or the fifteenth time. Just tell us a little about the movie and why you liked it.
2) Who is your favorite atheist character?
Yeah, this one is tricky. There aren’t a lot of them., but there are more than you think. We’ve heard about characters from books, movies, TV series, comics and even video games.
Agnostic characters are also acceptable – but kind of a cop out.
3) What is your geekiest hobby?
Which of your hobbies is so geeky, other geeks would be a little bit shocked and, perhaps, impressed?
4) What is your favorite sandwich?
Specifics are required. What kind of bread? Mayo or Miracle Whip? Toasted or cold? This stuff is important.
5) What is the stupidest thing anyone has said to you about your atheism/agnosticism?
And why do you think it was so stupid?
If you want us to read your answers on the air, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll put your answers in the queue and when it is your turn, we’ll read them on the air!
Then, eventually, we’ll post all the answers on this page. That sounds like a lot of work, though, so don’t be surprised if that takes us a while.
