Zachrilege Cast #168 — Alex Moreschi

November 9, 2018

What does this minister and chaplain do after the end of No Religion Required? Well he’s constantly on the lookout for community and he’s still banging the drum (or a beer bottle) for the atheist community. We talked about his upbringing, becoming a chaplain, why community is important, what’s more important than listening (not much) and what faith communities can learn from non-faith and vice versa.

Find Alex Moreschi on Facebook. He’ll friend you. Even you, weird but awesome people.

Zachrilege Cast #167 — Jen and Shea of Waiting 4 Wrath

November 1, 2018

Waiting 4 Wrath is a news, beer, more news, more beer, and generally four people having a great time. I had on two of the hosts a long, long time ago and I'm finally getting to complete my set with Shea and Jen. We'll talk Wyoming politics, how you should mix your beer with your podcasting and how to influence people and make friends in the atheist podcasting community.

Zachrilege Cast #166 — Mickey Dubrow

October 24, 2018

Mickey Dubrow is the author of the recently published American Judas. In this happy tale we see America shattering the wall between church and state. I know, even more than in our current reality. Mickey’s been in the writing game for a while and this is his first traditionally published book. Please support him and get it because it’s a quality read. We talked about his thoughts as a Jewish person about the term Judeo Christian, I’m not quite sure he liked my comparison of the Old Testament as Twilight and the New Testament as 50 Shades of Grey but I’ll keep workshopping that one.

Zachrilege Cast #165 — Unapologetix

October 16, 2018

It’s refreshing to hear new voices. Unapologetix is Nikki and Brent, a couple living in Florida (one of our most “American” states), do a bi-weekly show that’s ⅓ atheism, ⅓ humanism and ⅓ nerd. I think they might be 35% nerd at least. We talked about how they met cute, becoming atheists together and how true nerds afford the current comic book movie craze.

Zachrilege Cast #164 — ReasonCon RIP

October 13, 2018

This week we heard that ReasonCon, an atheist convention in Hickory, North Carolina would not return next year as promised. I attended the second and third versions of the conference, after hearing about the first one on No Religion Required. It was a great gathering in which I met a lot of my online friends and now we need to find a new place to get together. I can't track down that recording at the moment but if I find it, I will add it to the notes.

I included the link to the Chrisiousity/David Smalley discussion on sexual assault allegations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBuyDcQN5P4&t=2353s

October 5, 2018

I met Delissa aka Your Majesty at a Black Nonbelievers meeting in Atlanta. We'll talk about her work with financial ministry, how she found out exactly where in the Bible it says you should tithe, and what it's like to be the nonbeliever in her family

Zachrilege Cast #162 — Karen Garst

September 27, 2018

I bring back The Faithless Feminist Karen Garst. You knew I wouldn't be able to fight the urge to talk about the 2018 Mythicist Milwaukee conference. I hope they call it something else next year. Karen was on stage this year with Karen Straughan and Melissa Chen so we'll talk about the "evolution" of the conference from her POV and what was it like being on the stage. Plus we'll talk about her new book Women v Religion.

Zachrilege Cast #161 — Aron Ra

September 20, 2018

I have never felt worse for shortening the interview portion to 45 minutes than this week. Aron Ra created his nom de plume as a nod to the original monotheistic god of wind, air, but not volcanoes because that’s Yaweh’s corner. He was raised in a family that was Christian and Mormon and never fell for it. He became an activist about 20 years ago and turned a popular youtube series into a book I recently read, Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism. Is Aron afraid of bats? You will find out.

Zachrilege Cast #160 — The RFK Tapes

September 14, 2018

For a radical change I thought I would bring on someone to talk about another podcast. The RFK Tapes is a podcast based on some conspiracy theories about the assassination of RFK. Do we believe them? Were there multiple guns? Can I find a polka-dot dress to wear for the live recording? We'll find out.

Zachrilege Cast #159 — My 9/11 Personal Journey

September 11, 2018

I wrote something for the Atlanta-Journal Constitution in January and since it’s about 9/11, I thought it would be interesting to read it. So check out my whole near-death experience, how it changed me and why not to enter a dirty garage apartment in South Carolina.
