  • 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!


  • Episode 189 – Mini Geek Debates

    Who_is_your_favourite_Star_Trek_captain_We couldn’t decide what to talk about for this week’s episode so we decided to debate all the geek things ever!  Molly acts as moderator for several popular geek debate topics including “Star Trek” vs. Star Wars, Our favorite Doctor, our Favorite “Star Trek” captain, and more!  We know you are geeks so you have opinions.  So do we.  And this episode was all about some of them.  If you enjoyed the episode, we encourage you to submit your own geek debate topics.  Maybe we’ll do this again!


  • Episode 188 – All the Podcasting

    71d1aad089fa51b525316bb37dab8718This week, we are joined by guest Evan Pedersen 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.

  • Episode 186 – TV Boners

    daredevil-netflix-marvel-renewed-season-2__oPtWe have a new geeky boner episode filled with jokes about erections!  We talk about the stuff that has us super excited right now. 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!
