  • Episode 154 – CONvergence 2015

    Connie-as-Redshirt-web-290x300This week, we take a look at all the stuff we’ll be doing at CONvergence 2015 and boy, it’s a lot.  If you somehow miss us at the convention, it is because you are actively avoiding us.  We have a really packed schedule and we spend most of the episode telling you about what we have going on at the convention.  We also read five answers from a listener.  Sharp eared listeners might hear an edit and that’s only because there is one.  We aren’t going to tell you what we edited.  Please provide us your conspiracy theories in the comments!

    Want to know our schedules?  We can do that!

    Here’s a schedule for Molly.

    Here’s one for Nick.

    And one for Tim.

    Trigger Warning: we talk about rape jokes and lot of other taboo topics in this episode!

    This week we are joined by a colleague from Vilification Tennis – Kirsten Wade!  As members of a comedy troupe that specializes in offensive comedy, we talk about what boundaries we feel are difficult to cross but we also talk about why we feel that we should still cross them.


  • Episode 152 – When Kids ask Questions

    10344812_10152836903433155_4426762725123735037_nThis week we are joined by comedian, improvisor, and dad Joe Bozic.  We talk about dealing with questions like “is there a god” and trying to explain religious holidays in a secular household.  We also talk about comedy because that’s the sort of thing that happens when you get three comedians (and Tim) in a room together.

    Here’s a link to Joe’s Tumblr.


  • Episode 151 – Fury Road

    mad-max-fury-road-tom-hardy-charlize-theron-01This week, we spend some time gushing over Mad Max: Fury Road.  Obviously we spoil the movie pretty significantly.  Not that you can spoil much when the movie is basically a two hour car chase.  Sometimes you just have to admire a nerd film done right and Fury Road is most definitely that.  We also talk about whether or not it is a feminist movie.

    Show notes below the fold:

  • Episode 150 – Ultron Boners

    Ultron_Empire_textlessHard to believe we have done this for 150 straight weeks but here we are!  This week features the three of us talking about our latest geeky hard-ons and making dick jokes.  Must be a geeky boners episode!  Tim talks about a play he wants everyone to watch, Molly talks about her job and Nick addresses the spectacle that is Avengers: Age of Ultron.  We also very briefly celebrate our 150th episode.  We didn’t have cake.  So that sucked.

    If you want to know more about Tim’s show, “Jenny Bandage vs. The Unpronounceable A.K.R.O.N.Y.M,” you can go to the Fearless Comedy web site.  Tickets are available for pre-sale at Brown Paper Tickets.

  • Tim and Nick on Atheists Talk

    In case you missed Tim and Nick’s appearance on Atheists Talk this week, we have a copy of the show so you can listen NOW!  They were part of a panel of atheist and skeptic podcasters from the Twin Cities and spent most of their time talking about how Molly wasn’t there.


  • Episode 149 – Daredevil

    daredevilThis week, we bring in Marvel expert Mark Sherman to talk about the Netflix Daredevil series.  We don’t know if you’ve seen it yet but we all really liked it and think you should give it a try.  If you haven’t seen it, please be aware this is one of those “spoil the shit out of everything” episodes.  You’ve been warned!

    Also, today is Tim’s 25th wedding anniversary.  We didn’t mention it on the episode or anything but it’s kind of important.  To him anyway.


  • Episode 148 – Doubt

    doubt_diceThis week, we are joined by our friend Bill Stiteler, who is an agnostic.  We talk with Bill about doubt and the question of whether or not we can ever be really certain if god does or does not exist.  As usual, we get sidetracked and talk about a whole lot of other stuff because it isn’t like we can stay on topic.  Or maybe we can.  Who really knows for sure?


  • Episode 147 – Atheism on CNN

    0033fec1_mediumIn case you missed it, a few weeks ago CNN aired a special report on atheists entitled Atheists: Inside the World of Nonbelievers. We watched the special report, took notes and then sat down to share a small percentage of those notes with our listeners.  Parts of the report we just fine.  Other parts were annoying.  Overall, it was a mixed bag.  Keeping in mind that it was made to help believers understand the world of those who do not, we thought it was definitely worth the watch.

    If you want to see it for yourself, here is a link!

     


  • Episode 146 – Stealth Atheism

    10885180_10153063462703083_3140499189187810927_nThis week our guest is Claire Alexander, who is a sign language interpreter for the Deaf.  As part of her job, she is expected to act as a conduit for her client and that means she needs to communicate for them without making her own opinion known.  We talk to her about how that works when she is interpreting for someone who believes in something vastly different than she does.
