  • Upcoming live shows!

    GWGIf you are a fan of our live shows, we have three of them coming up in April!

    The first two will be at Die Laughing, a 50 hour comedy marathon produced by Fearless Comedy.  It is their annual fundraiser and as partners, we are happy to help them raise money for their production budget again this year.

    Both of our live podcasts will be on Saturday, April 9th.  The first will be at 4:00 PM and will feature Melissa Kaercher (recently heard on episode 185 – GMOs) and her new husband Fes Works.  By new, we mean that at 3:30, they will be married live on stage as part of the comedy marathon in an improvised wedding ceremony!

    The second podcast will be at 9:00 PM on the 9th and will feature Twin Cities actor, designer, writer, and director Ariel Leaf!

    Both episodes will be recorded live and you can stream them at the Die Laughing web site.

    In addition to recording the episodes, we are doing a Die Laughing fundraiser challenge! If we can raise $1000 for Fearless Comedy, the three of us will go on a “Real” Ghost Hunting tour!  Previously, we’ve had to go to a ceremony at Grace Church in Eden Prairie and had our personalities tested at a Scientology center.

    You can donate at any time (a donation button is on the Die Laughing website right now).  Just make sure you mention that this is a donation for the Geeks Without God challenge in the notes field.

    Finally, we are recording our 200th episode LIVE at the Bryant Lake Bowl on April 16th at 10:00 PM.  Our guests are radio personality Barb Abney and musician Jeremy Messersmith.  We’ll also have a bunch of other special guests and cool announcements!  You can buy tickets online through the Bryant Lake Bowl website or reserve them by calling 612-825-8949.

  • Live Podcasting Appearances!

    We love doing the live podcasting thing and in April, we’ll be recording several live podcasts for your viewing and listening pleasure.

    We’ll be Featured guests at Skep-Tech, which takes place April 5th, 6th & 7th.  You can view the schedule here.

    Currently, we are going to be hosting and recording a panel discussion about skepticism and technology featuring Tim Farley, Greta Christina, Zach Weinersmith and Maggie Koerth-Baker.   Yes, our plan is pretty much to shut up and let the rest of the panel talk.  That panel will run from 7:00 – 7:50 on Friday, April 5th.

    We also have two live podcast/interviews set up!

    At 8:00 on the 5th, we’ll be recording a podcast with Jen McCreight.  We’re going to be talking religion and Game of Thrones.


    UPDATE:  Jen has, unfortunately, had to cancel her appearance at the conference.  We’re working to secure a different guest and we’ll update this post as new information becomes available.  Hopefully we can get Jen on the podcast at a later date.

    Instead, we’ve scheduled a podcast with Greta Christina to talk about her recent book “Why are you Atheists so Angry? 99 Things that Piss off the Godless.”

    At 9:30 on Sunday the 7th, we’ll be recording with Zach Weinersmith

    Skep-Tech is a free conference so we encourage you to register and join us!

    Later in the month, the three of us will be at Omegacon Spring in Siren Wisconsin!  The fall convention was where we recorded the legendary Drunk Molly episode so who knows what will happen this time?  Date and time one this one is TBD because it is a slacker con and we’ll do it when we feel like it!

    And this year’s CONvergence marks our one year anniversary!  We’ll be recording two podcasts live.  One of them will be with our first ever guest Melissa Kaercher and the other will feature PZ Myers! The schedule for the convention will go live in a month or so so we’ll have date/time information soon.

    P.S: We’ll have time to record an extra podcast or three at CONvergence and we’d love to record with out-of-town guests.  If you are a fan of the show, have a good idea for an episode topic and you’ll be at the convention, let us know!
