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

Zachrilege Cast #163 — Delissa McAdoo

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.

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.

August 28, 2018

Felicia is the co-host of the Utah Outcasts, feminist, ex-Catholic and her real last name is Stormborn. We talked about her appearance on Serious Inquiries Only last year and if the conservative “center” is as bad or worse now.

Zachrilege Cast #157 — Mandisa Thomas

August 23, 2018

Mandisa made the financially dubious decision to become a full-time activist recently, so please go to her patreon and donate. She is the creator of Black Nonbelievers and was recently given the person of the year award by the UU church this year and is a board member for American Atheists. We discussed creating your own community, when it’s a good time to karaoke, and an audio book project with American Atheists that sounds pretty awesome.

Zachrilege Cast #156 — Kevin Logan

August 10, 2018

Kevin’s such a weird creative dude that he gave his cat a French accent because his cat is from France. That’s so not #brexit of him. He’s a progressive Youtuber, and I’ve talked to two of them so that’s nice. He lets us know what’s happening in the Manosphere, why we should not eat Kek, and how insomnia led to him becoming a fan of American sports.
