  • Episode 248 – Logan

    20161021_n_nerdistnews_logantrailer_1x1This week, we take a look at the latest installment in the X-movie franchise, Logan. This partial adaptation of the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics is reported to be Hugh Jackman’s final appearance as Wolverine and before you listen to the episode, we will warn you that we are going to spoil the shit out of the film. If you don’t want to know what happens, there are other fine episodes in which we don’t discuss this film and, as a result, we don’t spoil any of it.  Check those out.  After discussing our thoughts on the movie, we really for sure this time read off the last of the answers to our old five questions.  Next week, we debut a new five questions so you can look forward to that!


  • Episode 246 – No Sternum for Schumer

    6c5d8739cdf488daf970bc36c1a403fcOn this week’s episode, we take a look at Amy Schumer’s Leather Special on Netflix.  We all watched it and in spite of being fans of Schumer’s comedy, we all came away dissatisfied.  We use the special as a window into a conversation about comedic theory, which is something comedians won’t shut up about.  We also make a shocking announcement about our five questions!  What is the shocking announcement?  You’ll have to listen to find out!

    PS: Amy’s response to some of the negative reviews of her show is here.  We are all fans of her previous work so this response doesn’t really apply to us.  But it is interesting.


  • Episode 245 – O.A.F

    956e0342f5be216eeeaa9f42f0148521This week’s guest is our good friend Justin Ropella.  We talk with Justin about how he is Out as Fuck about everything in his life including his atheism, being queer, liberal, and even being monogamous.  We talk about this idea of being completely 100% committed to being entirely who you are to everyone all the time.  He then gets the opportunity to ask us five questions, which we answer in a thoughtful and intelligent fashion.


  • Episode 243 – The Rise of the Alt-Right

    maxresdefault-e1464888685807-800x430This week, we are joined by returning guest Nathan Gerber, who brings with him the topic of the rise of the alt-right.  By alt-right, of course, we mean white supremacists.  You can also call them racists, bigots, or even fucking Nazis.  Recent political events have given a lot of visibility to this rather ugly portion of our society and we talk through all of that.  Then Nathan asks us five really horrible questions we hope we never have to answer again.  Thanks a lot, Nate.


  • Episode 242 – Spring 2017 Coming Attractions

    thumbnail_25047For this week’s episode, we take a look at some geek movies coming up from this week through the end of May.  We start with Logan, which opens this Friday.  Tim has been constantly bragging he’s seen the first forty minutes of the film and come Friday, everyone will have seen the whole thing and he can finally shut the hell up.  We also look a lot of other interesting titles including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and a film we simply call the “Guy Ritchie King Arthur Movie!”


  • Episode 241 – Connectedness

    People NetworkThis week, our guest is Riki Robinson of the Tortuga Twins.  We’ve had his compatriot, Ronn Bauman, on our podcast numerous times so we felt we needed to spread the love.  Riki isn’t actually an atheist.  We don’t want to put words into his mouth, but he’s more of a deist.  Kind of.  He says he believes in “connectedness,” which is pretty cool as far as we’re concerned.  He’s also works with Islamic Relief USA and we talk about that.  If you want to hear more about that work, check out the podcast What a Relief!  He’s also the host of the Success Freaks podcast.  Enjoy!


  • Episode 240 – Schooling on the Road

    674d5574339105a988627de1c08ac771This week, we are joined by eleven time guest Ronn Bauman (he’s the one who brought it up)!  After listening to our episode about Home Schooling with Jeremy and Vanessa Messersmith, he has a chat with us about his experiences as he home schools his daughter on the road as a Renaissance Festival performer.  As one might expect, he doesn’t spend a lot of time on her religious studies.  But he makes a lot of other interesting decisions and it is a good insight into the options out there for those of us who are looking for non-traditional school options for our secular kids.


  • Episode 239 – Punching Nazis

    Adolf_Hitler_(Earth-81223)_from_What_If_Age_of_Ultron_Vol_1_4_0001This week, we are joined by frequent guest Eric Knight to discuss the hot topic of punching Nazis.  Is it OK to punch a Nazi?  If so, when is it OK?  As you might expect, we get a bit political here.  The sound issues we experienced with episode 238 continue with 239.  No wonder as we recorded both episodes back to back!  Again, we think we have sorted out the problem for now and things should sound better going forward.  We didn’t want to try to recapture the passion of this episode so we felt it was better if we posted it and we hope you can tolerate the poor audio.  If not, come back next week!


  • Episode 238 – Hamilton Boners

    photo-10This week, we take a look at some raging boners that all, surprisingly, relate back to the musical “Hamilton.”  In the cast of Molly, it doesn’t relate so much as it is actually “Hamilton.”  It is a pretty silly episode but we’ve gotta tell you, the audio is really bad.  There is a lot of skipping and repeating and, unfortunately, it’s all in the source file.  If you chose to listen and can handle the audio weirdness, we think you’ll like it.

    Tim is trying to figure out the problem.  He always watches the file as we record and these kinds of issues are not obvious.  Once the episode is recorded we either need to post it or give it up for lost.  We didn’t want to miss a week.

    So this episode and the next one are pretty choppy.  We are sorry and we’re going to figure out why this is happening so we can make sure it doesn’t happen again.
