  • Episode 54 – Therefore Hitler

    For the second of our live CONvergence reocordings, we were joined by PZ Myers from FreethoughtBlogs. PZ has been sporting a Geeks Without God sticker on his iPad case since last year’s convention and we were excited we could finally thank him for taking our sticker all over the world.  We talked with PZ about the evidence for evolution and how you can establish a beachhead with Creationists. PZ, of course, was also asked our five questions.  Hard to believe he was able to give us only one answer when we asked him about the stupidest thing anyone has ever said to him about his atheism.  We could probably do an entire podcast with PZ about that one question.  Perhaps someday we shall.

    Show notes below the fold:

  • CONvergence is here!

    Just in case you have missed the two podcasts in which we talked about CONvergence, we wanted to offer a quick rundown on places you can see all of us at the convention!

    All three of us will be in the Opening Ceremonies Sketch at 7:00 PM on Thursday, July 4th.  Opening ceremonies takes place on Main Stage so we’ve hit the BIG TIME!

    On Friday at 3:30, the three of us will be improvising conspiracy theories with our friend Jeremy Stomberg on It’s a CONspiracy!  That will be in Atrium 4.

    At 8:00 PM on Friday, we’ll be hosting the Fearless Comedy Room in room 224!  Stop in and try to win the Left Behind Board game, enjoy a specially selected Geeks Without God alcoholic treat and pledge to support Fearless Comedy Productions!

    And on Saturday at 5:00, we’ll be celebrating our one year anniversary by recording two live podcasts!  The first will be with our innauguarl guest, Melissa Kaercher and the second will be with noted atheist blogger PZ Myers!

    Of course all three of us will also be a part of Vilification Tennis on the Main Stage at 10:00 PM Saturday.  That is, of course, a very R rated show so if that isn’t your thing, we have no idea why you listen to our podcast!

    We’re also doing many other panels separately so if you want to know what we’re up to, here are links to Molly, Nick and Tim’s schedules!

    We hope to see you at the con!


  • Live Podcasting Appearances!

    We love doing the live podcasting thing and in April, we’ll be recording several live podcasts for your viewing and listening pleasure.

    We’ll be Featured guests at Skep-Tech, which takes place April 5th, 6th & 7th.  You can view the schedule here.

    Currently, we are going to be hosting and recording a panel discussion about skepticism and technology featuring Tim Farley, Greta Christina, Zach Weinersmith and Maggie Koerth-Baker.   Yes, our plan is pretty much to shut up and let the rest of the panel talk.  That panel will run from 7:00 – 7:50 on Friday, April 5th.

    We also have two live podcast/interviews set up!

    At 8:00 on the 5th, we’ll be recording a podcast with Jen McCreight.  We’re going to be talking religion and Game of Thrones.

     

    UPDATE:  Jen has, unfortunately, had to cancel her appearance at the conference.  We’re working to secure a different guest and we’ll update this post as new information becomes available.  Hopefully we can get Jen on the podcast at a later date.

    Instead, we’ve scheduled a podcast with Greta Christina to talk about her recent book “Why are you Atheists so Angry? 99 Things that Piss off the Godless.”

    At 9:30 on Sunday the 7th, we’ll be recording with Zach Weinersmith

    Skep-Tech is a free conference so we encourage you to register and join us!

    Later in the month, the three of us will be at Omegacon Spring in Siren Wisconsin!  The fall convention was where we recorded the legendary Drunk Molly episode so who knows what will happen this time?  Date and time one this one is TBD because it is a slacker con and we’ll do it when we feel like it!

    And this year’s CONvergence marks our one year anniversary!  We’ll be recording two podcasts live.  One of them will be with our first ever guest Melissa Kaercher and the other will feature PZ Myers! The schedule for the convention will go live in a month or so so we’ll have date/time information soon.

    P.S: We’ll have time to record an extra podcast or three at CONvergence and we’d love to record with out-of-town guests.  If you are a fan of the show, have a good idea for an episode topic and you’ll be at the convention, let us know!

     


  • Sharing the Love

    Well, it’s been a fun first week here at Geeks Without God.  We’re very pleased at the number of people who have given our little project a try and we hope you come back and tell your friends about us.  We want to give a shout out to some folks who mentioned us this week.

    While you all probably know who PZ Myers is, we’d like to thank him for mentioning us in his Blog about CONvergence. It was most unexpected and it made Tim get off his ass and post the podcast a few days earlier than originally planned.

    Melissa Kaercher, our first guest, has a nice write up on CONvergence that mentions us.  She also gave us our own blog entry!  Sweet!

    And our friends over at the Appropros of Nothing Podcast gave us a shout out so we are shouting back.  Thanks guys!
