  • Episode 113 – Someone is Wrong on the Internet

    afThis week we recorded our episode on site at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival with Byron Miller, proprietor of Broomhilde, where you can get handmade brooms, walking sticks, and wands.  We talked with Byron about getting into arguments on the internet.  Specifically, we talked about what we will argue about and what arguments we choose to avoid.  When Byron got a crack at our five questions, we were able to talk about Guardians of the Galaxy again!

  • Episode 110 – Sunday Assembly

    sunday-assembly-edmonton-58Our guest this week is Hertzey Hertz, who joins us to talk about Sunday assembly, a secular gathering for atheists/agnostics/nones who are looking for a community.  While we talk a lot about the Twin Cities chapter, there are assemblies popping up all over the world.  Many of the people we’ve talked to over the last two years have mentioned that the loss of a community is one of the major obstacles to shedding religion.  The Sunday Assembly movement is a new movement that attempts to fill that void for some people.  Of course Hertzey also gets to answer our five questions!

     


  • Episode 109 – Reality Boners

    RamsayThis week’s episode is a brand new installment of our Geeky boners!  As always, we spend the entire episode nerding out about our latest obsessions.  Molly’s latest obsession is actually a fairly old one that takes the form of a well read book.  Nick has been playing the beta of a new game.  Tim has been binge watching…well…a whole lot of different stuff.  Once we all get our nerd on, we read five answers from Australia.


  • Episode 108 – Atheist Comedians

    imagesThis week we are joined by our good friend Joseph Scrimshaw.  Joseph is a professional comedian and we have noticed over the time we’ve been recording this podcast that there seem to be a large number of comedians who are atheists and agnostics.  While we completely fail to provide any data supporting this theory, we talk about it anyway.  We also talk about some religious comedians and how Tim has watched them and doesn’t think they are very funny.  As a repeat guest, Joseph also asks us five exciting and very important questions!  Please note there is a wonderful opportunity for some new fan art at the end of the episode.  Go to town people!

  • Episode 107 – Transgender Issues

    transgenderToday’s guest won a guest spot on our podcast at our Die Laughing silent auction.  It was a hotly contested prize but Miranda Richards was our winner.  We sat down to record with her in an echo chamber of a hotel room at CONvergence 2014.  Miranda is transgender and we spent our time with her discussing her transition, the response of her family and a lot of other issues.  Nick also talked about his brother, who is also transgender.  Since we have read Miranda’s five answers on the air, she also got the opportunity to ask us her own five questions!  It was a very interesting conversation about a topic far outside many peoples’ consciousness.

  • Episode 106 – Game of Thrones

    iron_throne_by_twilight5694-d5a8hbj-e1357180993266The second episode recorded live at CONvergence 2014.  Our guest was Rebecca Watson, who joined us way back in Episode 4.  It may have taken us over 100 episodes to get her back but the wait was worth it as we try to cram as much Game of Thrones geekery into 30 minutes as we possibly can.  Because we talk books and TV series, it is fair to say that we don’t get very far.  Even so, a spoiler warning is certainly warranted.  Once we ran out of time to talk Game of Thrones, Rebecca had five questions for us to answer.  One of them made her giggle a lot.


  • Episode 105 – Jessica Fletcher is a Serial Killer

    jessicafletcherToday’s episode was recorded live at CONvergence 2014.  We even got the audience to sing our theme song.  Our guest was Raychelle Burks, better known as Dr. Rubidium!  Ray is a chemist so we spent the entire episode talking about Chemistry!  Actually that was the plan.  We ended up spending quite a bit of time talking about “Murder, She Wrote.”  We did eventually get to Chemistry, though, so if that’s your thing, just hang in there.  Ray also got a crack at our five questions.

  • Episode 103 – Directing the Fringe

    w5qpk9This week we are joined by Jeff Larson, Executive Director of the Minnesota Fringe Festival.  Tim calls him the Managing Director and the Artistic Director at various points because he can’t get anything right. We talk with Jeff about how our local Fringe is run as well as his experiences visiting other Fringe Festival’s around the country and around the world.  He also tells us a story about installing a something in Grace Evangelical Church.  Later, Tim got to ride in his Porche.  It was a good episode!

  • Episode 101 – Second Generation Atheism

    This week we are joined by Megan Culverhouse of the Ridiculous Puppet Company!  We’ve had a lot of puppeteers on of late.  Probably just a coincidence. Megan is a second generation atheist, raised by an atheist and an agnostic.  Because her experience differed from our own, we spend a lot of time exploring how that experience shaped her.  We also hear some very interesting stories from her dad’s time in Vietnam!  It’s a really heart warming episode!
