  • Episode 36 – Creationist Science Fair

    Our guest this week is Rob Callahan, writer and journalist.  He joins us to talk about his visit to a Creationist Science fair.  He tells us about the creationist scientific method (yes – there is one) and how well some of these kids did adhering to it.  He tells us about his experience coming out as an atheist in order to write his article about the fair as well.  Most people would probably be surprised to learn his coming out experience is fairly typical.  Of course, he also gets a crack at our five questions.  Enjoy!

    And hey!  Some publisher out there should help Rob write about the Twin Cities Creation Science Association!  Help a writer out!

  • Episode 34 – Who’s an Atheist?

    This week we are joined by guest Matt Savelkoul, who is quite the expert on Doctor Who.  We begin by discussing his journey to atheism but then we get to the important question – is The Doctor an atheist? Or, rather: Does god exist in the Doctor Who universe?  Both Matt and Nick even prepared notes on the subject!  After spending far too little time on the subject of Who, Matt gets a crack at our five questions.

  • Episode 16 – Vote No

    Our guest this week is Tony Miller, who plays Shamus the Insulter at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival (as well as other festivals around the country).  He was raised in the Menonnite church but moved away from it when he was in his thirties, eventually resolving that he was an atheist.  As we talked about his reasons for leaving the church, we found ourselves turning to the upcoming ballot initiative to limit the right to marry in Minnesota.  It was a pretty emphatic conversation and if you can take anything from it, we hope it is the desire to convince just one person you know to change their vote to “no.”  Tony then answered our five questions and his choice of sandwich will excite those of you who are not vegetarians.

  • Episode 14 – Helllllllo Islam!

    In this week’s episode, we talk with our friend Porter about recent protests in the Middle East.  We spend a lot of time talking about Islam – the first show in which we’ve spent a lot of time talking about that particular faith. We talk about the idea of wanting to kill someone in the name of what amounts to an imaginary friend and we get pretty riled up about it.  Then Porter answers our five questions and when he gets to his sandwich, we get riled up about that too.  Because who doesn’t get riled up about BACON?  Except Nick, of course, because he can’t eat bacon.  Oh well…more for the rest of us.
