  • Episode 158 – Goodbye Buffalo

    San-Francisco_Top-10For our second episode recorded live at CONvergence, we sat down with our good friend Rebecca Watson to talk about her move from Buffalo to San Francisco.  In case you’re wondering, she is pleased with the choice.  We only had about 25 minutes so we barely scratched the surface of the awesomeness of San Francisco.  Once we finished the with the San Francisco love fest, we gave Rebecca the first shot at answering our BRAND NEW five questions! What??? Something on Geeks Without God has changed?  Anyway, Rebecca is funny and charming and you should listen for those reasons alone.  The new questions are just a bonus.

  • Episode 154 – CONvergence 2015

    Connie-as-Redshirt-web-290x300This week, we take a look at all the stuff we’ll be doing at CONvergence 2015 and boy, it’s a lot.  If you somehow miss us at the convention, it is because you are actively avoiding us.  We have a really packed schedule and we spend most of the episode telling you about what we have going on at the convention.  We also read five answers from a listener.  Sharp eared listeners might hear an edit and that’s only because there is one.  We aren’t going to tell you what we edited.  Please provide us your conspiracy theories in the comments!

    Want to know our schedules?  We can do that!

    Here’s a schedule for Molly.

    Here’s one for Nick.

    And one for Tim.


  • Episode 151 – Fury Road

    mad-max-fury-road-tom-hardy-charlize-theron-01This week, we spend some time gushing over Mad Max: Fury Road.  Obviously we spoil the movie pretty significantly.  Not that you can spoil much when the movie is basically a two hour car chase.  Sometimes you just have to admire a nerd film done right and Fury Road is most definitely that.  We also talk about whether or not it is a feminist movie.

  • Episode 148 – Doubt

    doubt_diceThis week, we are joined by our friend Bill Stiteler, who is an agnostic.  We talk with Bill about doubt and the question of whether or not we can ever be really certain if god does or does not exist.  As usual, we get sidetracked and talk about a whole lot of other stuff because it isn’t like we can stay on topic.  Or maybe we can.  Who really knows for sure?


  • Episode 147 – Atheism on CNN

    0033fec1_mediumIn case you missed it, a few weeks ago CNN aired a special report on atheists entitled Atheists: Inside the World of Nonbelievers. We watched the special report, took notes and then sat down to share a small percentage of those notes with our listeners.  Parts of the report we just fine.  Other parts were annoying.  Overall, it was a mixed bag.  Keeping in mind that it was made to help believers understand the world of those who do not, we thought it was definitely worth the watch.

  • Episode 146 – Stealth Atheism

    10885180_10153063462703083_3140499189187810927_nThis week our guest is Claire Alexander, who is a sign language interpreter for the Deaf.  As part of her job, she is expected to act as a conduit for her client and that means she needs to communicate for them without making her own opinion known.  We talk to her about how that works when she is interpreting for someone who believes in something vastly different than she does.


  • Episode 145 – Scientology

    scientologycultYou, dear listeners, paid for this episode!  As a result of your generous donations, all three of us visited the Scientology center in downtown St. Paul and took their personality test.  It might surprise you to learn that all three of us had problems only Scientology could solve!  Other than that, our experiences were surprisingly different.  We hope you enjoy our conversation about the world of Xenu!  By the way – if the three of us disappear in the near future, you’ll know why!

  • Episode 140 – Pratfalls of Atheism

    4b69d1f36462257020a88d256eebfa88This week’s episode was recorded live at Die Laughing 2015!  We sat down with Levi Weinhagen, who is something of a podcasting expert.  His current slate includes Pratfalls of Parenting, Regret Labs, and Reason Gone Mad.  He is also one of the minds behind the spectacularly funny Comedy Suitcase, a company devoted to making smart comedy that is accessible to all ages.  We talk with Levi about his podcasts and then get into the meat of our conversation – the challenges of being out as an atheist.  We also make a lot of inappropriate jokes about Bill Cosby.
