  • Episode 93 – Lady Parts and Gay Issues

    This week’s episode was recorded live at Die Laughing.  It features comedian Elizabeth Ess talking about the Supreme Court and Hobby Lobby.  They sell yarn, in case you didn’t know.  They also really don’t want to be “forced” to provide certain kinds of contraception to their employees.  While we were talking to Elizaabeth about serious legal issues, we were also trying to raise money for Fearless Comedy.  You can hear how we did on those challenges, if you didn’t already know.

    There is some editing of the podcast during times when we were having really exciting conversations with people in the back of the room.


  • Episode 91 – All About Puppets

    Geeks With Green LanternsThis week’s guest is puppeteer Gordon Smuder!  He is probably best known for producing Transylvania Television, but he has worked with puppets for a large part of his adult life.  We talk with Gordon about his work in the field along with a few projects he has coming up, including one that has Tim as a writer!  He also is the second guest ever to give us swag – Green Lantern finger puppets!  All the other podcasters are jealous.

    Remember, we have two live podcasts at Die Laughing this weekend!  Join us and help raise money for Fearless.  If we raise enough money, you can send us to church!

  • Episode 90 – The Return of Arrogant Atheists

    This week, we double back to the topic we spent some time on in Episode 82.  Are atheists more arrogant that theists or agnostics or any other subset of people who choose to speak their mind?  Is using your religion as a political tool and less arrogant?  Is the simple belief that you are right about something an arrogant belief?  As you might expect, we have answers for all of these as well as five answers from another listener!

  • Episode 84 – Creationism vs. Evolution

    We recorded this episode while Bill Nye was debating Creationism with Ken Ham.  We know a lot of our listeners were watching the debate last week but we decided instead to talk about our feelings about creationism and why we didn’t think the debate was a great idea.  Response since we recorded the episode has been mostly positive but even if Nye “won” the debate, did he do more to advance his own cause or Ken Ham’s?

  • Episode 82 – The Arrogance of Atheists

    1510774_10202100240040276_281772362_nThis week we are joined by our friend Mark Lazarchic to talk about why he does not admit he is an atheist.  His reasons are not new or unique, which is not to say they lack justification.  We talk with him about the perceived and actual behavior of the atheists he knows as well as his own reluctance to identify with his beliefs.  We talk over each other a lot. Somewhere in there, we talk about other stuff like improvisational comedy, health care, Libertarianism, and the fact Mark is a big fat hypocrite.  Mark also answers our five questions.

    Pictured above: Mark demanded sparkling water and Cheetos waiting for him.  And we provided them.  Future guests shouldn’t expect the same treatment.

  • Episode 56 – Minnesota Fringe Festival

    Round Minnesota parts, the theatrical orgy known as the Fringe Festival is about to start!  Tim has been deeply involved in the festival for the last several years so we brought in former guest Joshua Humprey, himself quite the Fringe junkie, to talk about the event.  Josh and Tim get pretty nerdy with the details of the Festival while Molly and Nick do an admirable job of pretending to be interested.  Then Josh gets to drop five questions on the hosts and they are wicked hard.  Also, Tim has two shows at the Fringe so please go check them out! Actually, it turns out he has added a third show – and Nick and Molly will be in that one!

  • Episode 48 – CONvergence 2013!

    This week we spend the entire episode geeking out about our favorite convention, CONvergence, where we recorded our first two episodes.  The convention starts exactly one month from the posting date of this episode! We try to talk about all the cool stuff we’ll be doing there this year but there is just too much.  We have to sum up.  If you’re interested in learning about the convention and finding out about opportunities to see us at the con, this is the episode to listen to!  Come join us for nerdy-gras!

  • Episode 45 – Politics and Atheism

    Way back in January, there was a silent auction at the Fearless Launch party.  One of the items up for bid was a guest spot on Geeks Without God.  Months later, we finally got the winner of the epic bidding war on the podcast.  Eric Jacobson, the big winner, joined us to talk about his experiences in local politics and we get to talking about what it will take to get atheists into a position where they can actually have an impact on the political process.  We also talked about the (then upcoming) historic vote for marriage equality in Minnesota. For his donation, of course, Eric also got a crack at our five questions.

  • Episode 42 – Censorship and the Gay Agenda

    Skep-Tech/Zach WeinersmithThis week’s episode was recorded live at Skep-Tech 2013.  We sat down for a conversation with Zach Weinersmith, creator and illustrator of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.  After talking about reasons that artists shouldn’t charge $.25 per drawing at a comic convention, we moved on to censorship in the arts, Wikileaks and the Hays code. We also talked about tons of cocks.  Yep.  That happened. We even started to search for evidence of the gay agenda!  While the search was not terribly successful, it left us excited to learn more!

    It has been a while since the three of us have explored our geeky boners!  Molly gets excited about proofreading in ways that will make no sense to people who don’t care about grammar.  Nick runs through a large number of movies that he is looking forward to this year.  Tim talks about all the tabletop games he’s been playing lately, including games produced by Molly’s company and Lords of Waterdeep, which was mentioned by Brienne Bilyeu back in Episode 24.  Also, For the first time in a while, a listener (Josh Helton) gets a crack at our five questions.
