153 - Dr. Karen Garst

April 24th, 2017

00:0000:00

We were delighted to have Dr. Karen Garst as our guest for this episode. She joined us to talk about her book, Women Beyond Belief: Discovering Life Without Religion. Her book contains stories from 22 women who share their stories of what led them to leave behind their various forms of religion and the lives they now lead after moving away from supernatural beliefs. We were lucky enough to even have her read a couple excerpts for us!

 

It's a bit difficult to believe, but this episode completes three full years of us recording the Godless Rebelution podcast! As such, the rest of the show is a lot more loose than our usual fare and has only been very lightly edited for continuity and sound quality. You'll notice it's a bit more rambling and raw than what you've heard from us for a long time.

 

In addition to our interview with Dr. Garst, we covered the following items:

  • Openly atheist Arizona state representative Athena Salman delivers godless invocation which led a Republican colleague to remind her that prayers are supposed to mention a "higher power"
  • Ryan educates us on some of the finer points of firefighting
  • Kevin Swanson says pastors with gay children must resign
  • Rick Wiles exposes himself as an anti-semite during rant where he calls Ivanka Trump a "Kabbala practicing, evil woman"
  • We wax philosophical throughout the other stories, talk about the last three years of doing the show, and hint at what's next

Patreon subscribers get extended outtakes and early-release content for this episode. We've also got some items from the last couple episodes that ended up on the cutting-room floor that we'll be releasing as patron-only content in the next few days.

151 - Steve Bannon - Part 1

April 10th, 2017

00:0000:00

Due to some unforeseen circumstances (namely, a pant-load of news surrounding him), we decided to break our coverage of Steve Bannon into two parts. Alexander Scholl put a ton of work into giving us a comprehensive and frightening look into what makes Steve Bannon tick.

 

Other circumstances forced us to spend quite a bit longer editing the show this week, so there aren't any extras BUT our patrons are still receiving the show more than a day before everybody else.

 

We also cover the following news items:

  • Liberty High School in Texas sets aside a room for prayer
  • LDS Church leader Thomas Monson hospitalized
  • Christian nurse fired for pestering patients with prayer
  • Arizona State University changes teaching of evolution to not upset religious believers
  • The University of Utah is researching through brain scans the physical science of what makes church and religious adherence appealing

150 - Brewmaster Jason Stock

April 3rd, 2017

00:0000:00

We had a great time talking to Jason Stock, who is the Brewmaster at Squatters Pub Brewery in Salt Lake City. He is also the first openly atheist person Dan ever met, and was a huge influence on Dan identifying as an atheist himself.

 

Jason is smart, funny, and one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. We could have talked to him for several more hours, but all good things must come to an end.

 

Patreon subscribers get more than 30 extra minutes of our interview which were edited out to keep the regular show as close to two hours as possible.
