  • Episode 103 – Directing the Fringe

    w5qpk9This week we are joined by Jeff Larson, Executive Director of the Minnesota Fringe Festival.  Tim calls him the Managing Director and the Artistic Director at various points because he can’t get anything right. We talk with Jeff about how our local Fringe is run as well as his experiences visiting other Fringe Festival’s around the country and around the world.  He also tells us a story about installing a something in Grace Evangelical Church.  Later, Tim got to ride in his Porche.  It was a good episode!

  • Episode 102 – True Detective

    This week’s episode is another spoiler filled review of a show the three of us really enjoyed.  If you haven’t seen HBO’s “True Detective” yet, go and watch it.  This episode will be here when you get back.  If you’ve seen it or if you don’t care about spoilers, then listen away!  We talk about what we enjoy about the series and also some parts that we find kind of frustrating.  In the end, we give the show three thumbs up with only minor reservations.  And yes, there is an atheism angle so we didn’t sacrifice our godless cred.  Tim doesn’t remember if he mentioned that the theme song kick’s ass so he wants everyone to know that the theme song kicks ass.


  • Episode 101 – Second Generation Atheism

    This week we are joined by Megan Culverhouse of the Ridiculous Puppet Company!  We’ve had a lot of puppeteers on of late.  Probably just a coincidence. Megan is a second generation atheist, raised by an atheist and an agnostic.  Because her experience differed from our own, we spend a lot of time exploring how that experience shaped her.  We also hear some very interesting stories from her dad’s time in Vietnam!  It’s a really heart warming episode!

  • Episode 100 – Grace Megachurch

    photo-7Wow!  We’ve made it to 100 episodes without a single week missed.  Take that all you podcasts that didn’t do that!  For our 100th episode, we went to Grace Evangelical Free Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.  We sat in the pews, watched and participated in the service, and then went back to Molly and Nick’s house to talk about the experience.  It was, to say the least, eye opening.  The podcast explores our responses to the service and to the people we saw there.

    We’d like to thank everyone who donated to Fearless Comedy Productions so we would be forced to attend this service.  We didn’t enjoy ourselves but at least Fearless made $666 off of our pain!

  • Episode 99 – SIR Ben Kingsley

    This week’s guest is actor, puppeteer, and movie star Charles Hubbell!  Charles joins us to talk about many things but primary among them is his work on Walking with the Enemy, a film currently playing in theaters!  If you can find it in your area, you should to see it if only because we know a guy who is in the movie!!!  Charles was a fascinating guest.  He shared some stories about working with Ben Kingsley and even got around to answering our five questions.  You should listen!  He even did a little bit of Count LeShoc for our on our outro!!!


  • Episode 98 – CONvergence 2014

    It’s a little early but we are all excited because we have had a look at our schedules for CONvergence and we want to talk about our plans for the convention.  While schedules are subject to change, this episode covers what we’re looking forward to at the con this year as well as some costume plans Nick and Molly are putting together.  We also spill some information about the live podcast we’ll be doing at the convention! If you aren’t going to CONvergence, we hope that you feel really bad about it after listening to this show!

  • Episode 97 – The Munchkin Czar

    This week we sat down with Molly’s cousin Andrew Hackard.  He works for Steve Jackson Games and has the awesome title of Munchkin Czar!  Given that fact, you’d think we’d spend the entire episode taking about Munchkin.  Why would we do that?  That’s his day job!  Instead, we talk about the latest board games we’ve been playing.  Are you tired of hearing us talk about Legendary?  We hope not!  To be fair, we talk about a whole bunch of other games as well.  Also, since we answered Andrew’s five questions on the podcast many moons ago, we have to answer five questions that he brought to us!

  • Episode 96 – Captain America Boners

    This week’s episode is another installment of Geeky boners!  We have a lot of big ones and a few small ones.  Tim spends time yakking about his latest writing projects, Molly yaks about a game she is playing, and Nick yaks about home pass. Then everyone starts yakking about the awesomeness that is Captain America: Winter Soldier.  Finally, we talk about the impact of the film on “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” and how the show is growing on us.

  • Episode 95 – The Soft Touch

    1412712_10152041656681639_1502255680_oThis week’s episode was recorded over the long Die Laughing weekend so if your co-hosts sound a little tired, it’s because we’d gotten very little sleep.  In between live recordings with Patrick Bauer and Elizabeth Ess, we snuck up to Tim’s hotel room to record an episode with Ben San Del.  Ben is an atheist and he’ll sometimes talk about his beliefs in his comedy.  Other times, though, require the soft touch.  We talk with him about using a soft touch to get his audience thinking about what they blindly believe and possibly getting to think critically about other things they have accepted without question.

    As promised, here is a link to Ben’s web site!

  • Episode 94 – Cosmos

    This week, we talk about the Cosmos, old and new.  Tim remembers watching the original “Cosmos” with his dad back in the 80′s and remembers Carl Sagan’s simple question of “why not save a step” as one of the many influences on his road to atheism.  We talk mostly about the new series starring Neil Degrasse Tyson.  We discuss our favorite parts of the series and how happy we are that Tyson continually makes subtle digs at religion and superstition.
