Zachrilege Cast #137 — Matthew James, author

April 2, 2018

I had Matthew on two years ago to promote his first book Only an Atheist Can Help God Save the World. I know this is a shock to most, but God failed so in Jesus Returns, Jesus takes the baton on world-saving. Why is Jesus such a player and why don't the Gospels mention this? Find out.

Zachrilege Cast #136 — No Religion Required Exit Interview

March 21, 2018

It’s over. 184 episodes and there will be no more NRR. Bobby and Ashley come on to discuss the show that was, how the show helped Ashley out of religion, why her joining the show made it a show, the cavalcade of co-hosts, how Ashley brought Alex out of a bar to pray for her mother, a NaNoCon 2018 review, how Bobby got to marry off Callie and Celes and whose hair led them to continue this podcasting life.

Zachrilege Cast #135 — Jen Aldrich of Not Another Atheist Podcast

March 15, 2018

I stayed up until 11 to record this one so don’t say I have no idea about sacrifice. I had on Jen of Not Another Atheist Podcast since that Canadian co-host didn’t make it. We talked about a show three years in the making, what it was like to talk to Matt Dillahunty three days before the Buzzfeed article and what it’s like in the Clarksville, Tennessee atheist scene.

Zachrilege Cast #134 — Trav Mamone of Bi Any Means Podcast

March 8, 2018

Trav hosts the Bi Any Means and co-hosts the Biskeptical podcast. That’s right, they get around, podcast wise. Trav will be presenting at the Nashville Nones conference. They will speak on activist burnout, and I’ll probably need some of that healing after talking about #metoo comment on Twitter.

Zachrilege Cast #133 — Patrick Horst of Nashville Nones

February 26, 2018

In episode 86 I talked with Patrick about his conversion from being a Mennonite to a nononite and how he started the Nashville Nones conference two years ago. Today we talk about the third iteration of the conference, how the “Consensuall” label is his reaction to all of the issues the secular movement is having with some of their biggest stars, and why this year’s Nashville None’s conference in Nashville on March 17 promises to be the best of all.

Zachrilege Cast #132 — Amy and Nadya of The Ginger Snaps

February 21, 2018

Amy and Nadya do a bi-weekly podcast from two trans atheists who like to educate and science the crap out of things. They “met cute” playing D&D (Dungeons and Dragons)

Online and decided to dive into things. They’ve talked about the trans-positive movie Boy Meets Girl, explained some of the medical concerns a trans woman has, and tells you all about something called Titty Skittles.

Zachrilege Cast #131 — Chrisiousity

February 16, 2018

Chrisiousity is a left-leaning youtuber which isn’t quite as rare as you might think. Her recent video series on Mythicist Milwaukee explains the rise of the alt-right sympathizers pretty well. You’re going to learn about feminism through the lens of I Dream of Jeannie, a smart move as watchers don’t have an emotional attachment so her points are well made. She’s been dogpiled on Twitter and the subject of a few response videos, but keeps on trucking and we are better for it.

Zachrilege Cast #130 — Jesse Rabinowitz

February 7, 2018

Jesse is a clinical psychologist and father of Aaron Rabi aka he’s in touch with his Void. We talked about diagnosing a President, how he decided to do a one-man show on Allen Ginsberg and how an atheist can embrace spirituality.

Zachrilege Cast #129 — Secular Yakking exit interview

January 30, 2018

It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to a beloved podcast with a lovely couple like Robert and Amy Ray. The good news is they aren’t leaving us completely, as Robert wants to devote more time to his Original Motto project. We talked about how the show started, how getting Amy on made all the difference, the stories they told, Robert’s OM project and attempts to do secular invocations, plus a little bit about the current state of the movement.

Zachrilege Cast #128 — Deborah Smith

January 26, 2018

Deborah Smith is wicked smart. Jeanne suggested her as a guest and if I lose Jeanne, I lose like 25% of my audience. We talked about her journeys with her son in Columbia, the lovely combination of Lyme disease and opioid crisis that made her think Florida would be better than New Jersey, traveling to her first atheist convention and why podcasts are important to her.
