  • Episode 264 – Spider-Man: Homecoming

    thumbnail_25242This week, we sit down to discuss the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Spider-Man: Homecoming!  If you are looking for all of us to disagree about a movie, this is not going to be the one.  We all loved it.  While we don’t make any bold arguments that this is the best Spider-Man film, we may well have considered going there had one of us chosen to ask the question.  As with all of our movie-centric episodes, we must warn you we spoil the shit out of the film so if you haven’t seen it yet, and you care about such things, consider yourself warned!


  • Episode 263 – Life After Death and Austria

    main-thumb-t-18145-200-vVlpOpOFKDnRmNEBrxSzORsf2E7S48fiThis week’s episode was recorded live at CONvergence 2017 for our fifth birthday!  We are joined by frequent guest Joseph Scrimshaw who tells us all about his work with a video game company in Austria.  We also talk about the idea of what we’d like to see in an afterlife and our concerns with the concept of an afterlife segregated into good and evil.  You may also hear an occasional word or two from Laura Okagaki-Vraspir!  We don’t totally remember.  We had cake flavored vodka.


  • Episode 262 – Death with Doctor LOV

    cancer-101-s1-what-is-cancer-cellThis week’s episode was recorded live at CONvergence 2017 with our good friend Laura Okagaki-Vraspir or, as we call her because of her initials, Doctor Lov!  You might remember her as one of our first guests way back on episode 8 when she talked about zombie fungus.  She’s back to talk to us about cancer!  Specifically, she talks to us about facing a potentially terminal disease as an atheist.  It is a super touching Geeks Without God in which we have a serious conversation – and also make jokes – about cancer.  Joseph Scrimshaw also says the occasional word or two.


  • Episode 261 – Collectable Cards and Cookies

    BrianDurkin1This week we are joined by Philadelphia comedian and podcaster Brain Durkin.  Brian was in town for a little while and we sat down with him to talk about his history making money playing collectable card games, his thoughts on religion, and his podcast Full Belly Laughs. We had a great conversation with him and hope you enjoy it!


  • Episode 260 – CONvergence 2017

    Connie-as-Rosie-the-Riviter-e1396674236605This week, we are getting ready for our annual trip to CONvergence!  Our podcast debuted there five years ago and we all have very personal connections to the convention.  We talk about our schedules for the con, some of our favorite things, and even some things that we don’t enjoy quite as much.  If you are coming to the convention, we hope we get a chance to see you there.  If you aren’t someone who attends CONvergence, maybe the episode will get you thinking about a local sci-fi con of your own!

    Note: We are aware there are some audio issues with this episode starting around the 22 minute mark.  The problem is not the same as issues we’ve encountered on previous episodes but it is, unfortunately, in the source file.  As always, we’ll do some checking to figure out how we can prevent such issues in the future!

    Show notes below the fold!

  • Episode 259 – Mooks is in the House!

    Mooks is in the HouseThis week, our guest is Saymoukda Vongsay, the Refugenius!  She is a poet and playwright who is going to be a Guest of Honor at CONvergence 2017.  We have a far ranging conversation with her that covers her experiences as a refugee, her buddhist roots, her play “Kung-Fu Zombies” and just about everything else!  If you are coming to the convention this year, she is definitely going to be a guest you want to find and we hope our conversation helped to put her on your radar!

  • Episode 258 – Luke Cage & Iron Fist

    Luke Cage & Iron FistThis week, we take a look at the latest original Marvel series on Netflix – Luke Cage and Iron Fist.  We are joined by our favorite Marvel expert, Mark Sherman.  Luke Cage, we all agree, isn’t perfect but is still pretty darn good.  Iron Fist, however, is a series about which none of us could find anything to recommend.  We compare the two shows and try to figure out what Luke Cage got right and what Iron Fist got so horribly wrong.  We do spoil some shit about both shows but take our word for it – Iron Fist was pretty much spoiled already.

  • Episode 257 – Outdoor Alien Boners

    Outdoor Alien BonersThis week’s episode is another round of geeky boners!  Molly basically talks about how much she likes to be outside.  Tim talks about watching a “new” TV show even though it isn’t actually new.  Nick talks about playing a “new” video game even though it isn’t new either.  Basically, the three of us are playing catch-up on cool stuff we didn’t get to the first time around.  Except for Molly.  She’s just happy she gets to go outside.


  • Episode 256 – Wonder Woman

    Wonder WomanThis week, we talk about the newest installment in the DC Cinematic Universe – Wonder Woman!  As with most films, we are going to spoil the shit out of it so if you haven’t seen it yet, listen no further!  One of the hardest things about a property like Wonder Woman is all the expectations people carry with the character and your gentle hosts are no different.  In the end, we all concluded this is a good film that also has a great deal of cultural importance.  Also, Tim takes an opportunity to call out AMC for some shitty customer service, we thank some brand new Patreon supporters, and we say nice things about the post office!


  • Episode 255 – Murmurs of Doubt

    perf6.690x9.610.inddFor this week’s episode, we got a sneak preview at the new graphic novella, Murmurs of Doubt, by writer/artists Rebecca Fox.  The book will be out the middle of June and available for purchase via Rebecca’s web page and also on Amazon.  It is twelve explorations of the moment when someone first experiences that moment of doubt that could lead to the loss of faith.  All three of us found different stories that really connected with who we are and with our own journeys to atheism.  We were very excited to get an advanced look at this book and recommend it highly.  Rebecca is a long time listener so you should definitely show some solidarity and take a look at her work!
