Zachrilege Cast #250 — Alison Gill

April 19, 2021

I didn’t plan to have a somewhat extensive conversation about Richard Dawkins’ poorly thought out tweet about trans people, but you have to report the news. Alison Gill is the Vice President of Legal and Policy at American Atheists. She has managed state-level advocacy on issues such as conversion therapy, bullying prevention, education discrimination, health and wellness, youth homelessness, and data collection. Looking for a Dungeons and Dragons Dungeon Master? You’ve come to the right place.

Zachrilege Cast #249 — Neil the 604 Atheist

Zachrilege Cast #249 — Neil the 604 Atheist

April 9, 2021

What’s the 604 all about? Is it the number of hot peppers this guy needs to be satisfied? Neil started as a Christian raised by Jews, took the side road to paganism and ended up in our camp. We talked about his background, meeting his birth family, the conferences that helped him in the community and doing three hour post shows.

Zachrilege Cast #248 — Trevor Poelman

April 5, 2021

Trevor started as an evangelical and ended up an atheist content creator. On youtube of all places. Youtube! You should see the ads. In any case, he went from a believer to poking holes by doing a podcast and later video essays, and he’s built a nice following. We talked about his transition, deciding to do an expose on the John 3:16 guy, and why tuxedo cats are the best.

Zachrilege Cast #247 — Jessica Bluemke Greiff

March 25, 2021

Once I had Hemant on, I had to complete my The Friendly Atheist podcast set. Jessica convinced Hemant to start a podcast and they have been happily recording every week. We discuss the transition of the show from strictly interview based to story based, how she started a podcast with her husband, the critical issue of who is super straight, and what it’s like to record a God Awful Movies episode.

March 15, 2021

With a rare opportunity for secularism to make big gains in America, we have one organization that can help. Casey Brinck is the Director of Policy and Government Affairs for the Secular Coalition for America. We talked about his religious upbringing, being an atheist in a foxhole and being an atheist in Republican congressional staff.

Zachrilege Cast #245 — Hemant Mehta

Zachrilege Cast #245 — Hemant Mehta

March 8, 2021

So he sold his soul but that’s not totally accurate, and he did win on Jeopardy but he’s not the best trivia nerd and he doesn’t do karaoke. What does Hemant Mehta do? Sometimes he regrets creating the Friendly Atheist tag but it has stuck from visiting churches in the 2000s (first decade) to his podcasting/youtubing/blogging life to 2021.

Zachrilege Cast #243 = Let’s Get Podunkadunk With Chris and Lyman

February 26, 2021

Chris returns and Lyman returns (eventually) to talk black ice, the Biden administration, mint chocolate chip ice cream, and the Capitol insurrection. Which state is meaner and or dumber, Tennessee or Georgia? It’s a tough one.
