208 - Maybe Jordan Peterson is an Asshole

June 1st, 2018

00:0000:00
We had a bunch of stories lined up that we were going to talk about, but a glance at Facebook derailed the entire show because we decided to chuck most of our plans out the window in order to talk about Jordan B. Peterson.

 

If you're unfamiliar with Peterson's body of work, you've probably spared yourself a lot of time and confusion. He's a Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, a YouTube sensation, a darling of the alt-right, a purported champion of free speech, and now a best-selling author.

 

He's also a ginormous asshole who couches his sexism, racism, misogyny, and a host of other Victorian-era ideals in a word salad of pseudo-intellectual and pseudo-scientific verbosity that would put Deepak Chopra to shame.

 

You can read more about Peterson on this RationalWiki site: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Jordan_Peterson

 

Aside from picking apart some of Peterson's more troublesome ideas, we also talked about:

  • Ireland repealed its abortion ban
  • Alex Jones says "The Boy Scouts of America is a pedophile induction center" 
  • PATRONS ONLY - Dave Daubenmire: Royal wedding was a "psy-op" to promote "the blending of the races"
  • PATRONS ONLY - Dave Daubenmire: The deep state will carry out another 9/11 to distract from the DOJ’s IG report
  • PATRONS ONLY - Dave Daubenmire: The deep state will carry out "false flag" attacks with "MK Ultra shooters"

207 - Shannon Inglet: Big Love, Big Lie - Growing Up In Polygamy

May 30th, 2018

00:0000:00
We were delighted to have Dr. Shannon Inglet join us in-studio to talk about her life growing up in a polygamist sect here in Utah.

 

When people learn that Shannon grew up in a polygamist home, they immediately lean forward and say something like, “That is so interesting!” And it was. But it was also terrible. And, in retrospect, it was ludicrous to the point of hilarity.

 

Shannon Inglet was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She earned a doctorate degree in Pharmacy from the University of Utah and currently practices as a medication safety specialist for a large Utah hospital. Her favorite people in the world are her wonderful husband and adorable two year old son; her favorite canine is a Doberman named Tesla. Shannon enjoys travelling, cooking and eating, and running marathons (which facilitates more cooking and eating).

 

Also in this episode: 

  • Update on the falling-out between The Satanic Temple - Arizona Chapter and the YWCA - it's all good now
  • Deadpool 2 is awesome
  • PATRONS ONLY - Why Trump hates the Iran deal
  • PATRONS ONLY - Mitt Romney calls Robert Jeffress a "religious bigot"
  • PATRONS ONLY - 257 dead in Algerian plane crash
  • PATRONS ONLY - Golden State Killer / Nightstalker was caught using DNA evidence

We're trying out a new audio recording service and had some technical issues that resulted in some audio issues, but we cleaned it up pretty well and had a fantastic time talking with Mandisa. We'll definitely need to get her on the show again sometime soon!

May 10th, 2018

00:0000:00
It's a bit hard to believe we're starting season five of the show. Honestly, we didn't have any idea we'd be doing this for so long, or that we'd have such an incredible base of support from our wonderful listening audience. If anybody asks why we do what we do, we're happy to blame all of you.

200 - 200

April 5th, 2018

00:0000:00
Thanks for your patience while we worked to get this episode out. Dan has been SUPER busy lately and wasn't able to get this out as quickly as he wanted. We hope you all got a bit of a laugh out of the April Fool's Day release of the "fake" episode #200. We look forward to telling you more about how that happened.

 

As we prepare to wrap up season four (FOUR!? Holy crap!) of the Godless Rebelution, we have also hit the 200 episode milestone. That's one helluva lot of content, especially when considering the length of each show.

 

Matt went through and pulled clips from a bunch of episodes that make up about half of this one. We also cover a few other news items and reminisce about the history of the show for a bit.

 

Our Patreon patrons get to finally hear the incredibly awkward question Ryan asked our guest, Michael Rupp, at the end of episode #120.

 

Finally, we'd like to thank you from the bottom our godless hearts for all of the support you've provided over the last four years and two hundred episodes. We wouldn't be doing this if it weren't for you, our incredible listeners.

197 - Thoughts and Prayers

March 12th, 2018

00:0000:00
******************************
SPECIAL NOTE:
The deadline for sending us your comments is Sunday, March 18!

 

We're only three episodes away from 200, so be sure to send your thoughts to us at godlessrebelution@gmail.com so we can play them on the show!
******************************

 

We know "thoughts and prayers" is roughly equivalent to a shrug and a sigh, but Florida State Senator Kelli Stargel (R) says they "are really the only thing that’s gonna stop the evil from within the individual who is taking up their arms to do this kind of a massacre.”

 

Other stories include:

  • Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz says the Florida school shooting survivors "need a belief in God and Jesus Christ"
  • Utah politics makes another embarrassing entry as we talk about a recent letter sent by Utah Governor Gary Herbert pleading with "religious leaders" to pray for desired weather
  • The social contract between police and citizens
  • We finish up the regular portion of the show talking about Jana Riess' recent post on Rob Porter, Mormonism, and siding with the abuser
  • PATRONS ONLY -  Things Trump has said and done that make him unfit to be President of the United States

196 - Joey Tophat

March 5th, 2018

00:0000:00

 

** SPECIAL NOTE **

 

We're only four episodes away from 200, so be sure to send your thoughts to us at godlessrebelution@gmail.com so we can play them on the show!

 

We spend the bulk of the show going through this terrible bit of garbage from the LDS Living website.

 

We also talk about:

  • "As a Christian," how can any god allow horrific evil like the Florida school shooting?
  • A woman claims she saw Bigfoot, and she's suing the state of California to "prove" it.
  • Georgia's Lt. Governor warns Delta that he'll block tax legislation benefiting airlines unless Delta reverses its decision to stop offering discounts to NRA members
  • PATRONS ONLY -  Our conversation drifted into the dark and disturbing world of serial killers (feel free to blame Ryan). As part of this conversation, Dan read a letter from Albert Fish to the mother of one of his victims. It's fucking dark. It's also the first time we've felt compelled to offer a trigger warning ahead of the segment.

January 31st, 2018

00:0000:00
Lucien Greaves had to reschedule with us at the last minute (he'll be on the show again very soon!), so Atheists of Utah's Kevin Neumann joined Dan, Ryan, and Matt in-studio to talk about the upcoming conference for the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) with Sarah Ponto Rivera, Grey Faction's Director, and Chalice Blythe, National Director for The Satanic Temple's After School Satan Club.

190 - Kissing Hank’s Shithole

January 24th, 2018

00:0000:00

We were delighted to speak with James Huber, author of "Kissing Hank's Ass." James' parable has been used as the basis for several different short films which expose (in a very humorous way) some of the problems with religious beliefs.

 

You should definitely watch the "Kissing Hank's Ass" video before listening to the show. The version with the best production quality is probably this one from 2013: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaFZQBb2srM

 

We also talk about Trump's "shithole" comment, the missile warning in Hawaii, and Pornhub's viewership stats during and after the missile warning.

Patrons also get a lot more information about what Matt has been dealing with during his absence.

187 - A Cold, Frankensex, and Moore

January 3rd, 2018

00:0000:00

Is it too late for a Three Wise Men-themed title?

 

Once again, Grant Larimer had nothing better to do on a Friday night than to eat pizza, drink alcohol, and talk about shit with Ryan and Dan - but that sounds like a goddamned good time anyway, right?

 

Anyway, Dan is getting over a head cold, we talk about Al Franken, GMOs, Sweet Cakes, Roy Moore, libertarianism, and a Utah teacher who got fired for... well, shit... we're not sure why they were fired.

186 - In the Name of Jesus, Go See a Doctor!

December 27th, 2017

00:0000:00

We can hardly believe it's been a whole year since we didn't become better people. Oh, well. Maybe next year.

 

It's the last show of the year, and with literally negative fifteen minutes notice, Grant Larimer was kind enough to fill in for Matt again this week as we cover the top ten (or so) posts made by Right Wing Watch this year.

Christopher Hitchens died six years ago last week. Out of The Four Horsemen, he was Dan's personal favorite.

 

Matt wasn't able to join us tonight, but fear not! The Purple Dragon (AKA Grant Larimer) joined us in-studio to talk about a bunch of things going on in the news.

 

Patreon subscribers get a bit of a behind-the-scenes look at the show this week. We included some off-the-air commentary on a range of things, including flat-earthers, Ryan's short film contest entry, and much more!

183 - Flynn Pleads Guilty

December 4th, 2017

00:0000:00

Did you have a good holiday break? We certainly hope so!

 

We were supposed to record on Tuesday, but Ryan is sick and Matt was unavailable. With all that happened in the news today, it turned out to be a good thing Dan wasn't able to record until this afternoon.

 

This episode deals with a lot of pretty heavy stuff - from the murder-suicide committed by an atheist activist early this week, to today's news of Michael Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the FBI.

 

Dan flies solo for an entire show for the first time since we started the Godless Rebelution almost four years ago. Strap in... it may be a bumpy ride.

182 - The Illusion of Free Will

November 20th, 2017

00:0000:00

Is free will an illusion? Is the illusion of free will an illusion itself? Tune in to hear Matt and Dan expand more on their thoughts about free will. Matt finally decided what his position is.

 

Ryan is glamping in Goblin Valley, and we'll be taking a break next week for Thanksgiving, but we'll all be back in the studio in a couple weeks.

 

We hope you have a great holiday!
