Zachrilege Cast #116 — Mel Rice of (even more) Normalize Atheism

October 19, 2017

I caught up with Mel Rice (original interview/back story episode 97) about the recent controversy regarding Normalize Atheism, her work with that campaign and the Secular Domestic Violence Survivor Support Network, how we can make atheism better through beer, cats, and her recent motorcycle woes.

Articles mentioned in the episode

Another fun National Review article, this time suggesting that Biblical morality (like in the Christian mom article, oddly not defined in any way) would help with all the sexual scandals. There’s no irony implied even though the tweet the author used as inspiration is most likely from a Catholic.

Zachrilege Cast #113 — Fred Sims of ORly Radio

September 29, 2017

Fred’s another ships in the night person who I may have breezed by at ReasonCon and it was a major miss on my part. He talks about the relationship that got him a co-hosting slot on ORly Radio, being a corrections officer and how scoring too highly on a Wonderlic test cost him, talking as a monogamous person with the polys, and his love of 80s horror movies.

Zachrilege Cast #111 — Michael Schaffer of Reasonable Risk

September 15, 2017

He's been a literary agent, poker pro, real estate mogul and now does a podcast about skepticism without making fun of marginalized people -- how refreshing. We covered his podcast history, how he met Hemant Mehta in a previous life, and what other religions haven’t yet learned from Jewish people.

Zachrilege Cast #109 — Dustin Dark on alt right culture

August 23, 2017

Dustin Dark of the newish Everyones Wrong Podcast had a recent interview with an alt right activist who went to the Unite the Right protest. Dustin had Hunter rate the races, talk about secession, and the usual exciting right-wing talking points. We also introduce Everyone’s Wrong, which features most of the cast of Wayward Atheists going more political.

Zachrilege Cast #108 — David Fitzgerald of Jesus Mything in Action

August 16, 2017

It's hard to pin prolific author David Fitzgerald to one thing, but since I read the trilogy Jesus Mything in Action we need to go deep on the most important potentially fictional character in history. We talked about how he fell in and out of love with Jesus, the impetus of writing a mythicism book that reads like fiction (Nailed), how atheists led him to go deeper with his recent three-volume Jesus: Mything in Action and how he’s a well-rounded dude in love of stouts and science fiction.

Zachrilege Cast #107 — Wendy Marsman of Women Beyond Belief

August 9, 2017

Wendy has transferred 40 years of evangelical Christian experience into a new podcast that focuses on women and their experiences as they leave the church. She talks about being a missionary in Brazil, getting out of an abusive relationship and finding her high school sweetheart more than 20 years later. Her family joined her in getting out of religion and her daughters are part of the podcast. It’s an important show.
