  • Episode 122 – Geek Morals

    1147988Tim’s wife Pat rejoins us this week to talk about Geek morality.  We look at popular geek culture and talk about the moral lessons we find there and how those moral lessons compare to those we find in other texts like – say – the bible!  We explore the grey areas that can be found in many of our favorite genre fiction including Star Trek, Star Wars and Dr. Who.  Then Pat asks us five questions!

  • Episode 69 – Star Trek Humanism

    This week we are joined by guest Scott Lohman, President of the Humanists of Minnesota and big “Star Trek” fan.  We talk about Gene Roddenberry and his beliefs and then get deeply entrenched in how those beliefs about god found their way into “Star Trek” continuity.  There is a little bit of time spent talking about Humanism but mostly we talk about “Star Trek.”  There’s a lot of “Star Trek” to talk about.  Like two hundred and seventeen seasons or something!  Scott also gets to answer our five questions because that’s one of those things we do.
