We're back with our Atheist friends Colleen and Rebecca. We get into a conversation around communal liturgies, having community, the connection of all things, the benefits of religion, and what fills the void of religion when we leave.
We’ve had a poll circulating for a while now, and you’ve been answering it letting us know what you would like to have added to our already stellar weekly line up. What that means is, we will continue to have our long-form story episodes releasing every Wednesday along with a new additional weekly episode called, MONDAY MELTDOWN, on a Tuesday.
What’s it all about? It’s about you! You wanted it, so we’re giving it to ya! Check out this episode to get the details and start contributing your comments, questions, and personal meltdowns.
Every year, Jen joins me on our Annual Holiday Card Episode! This year we get personal as always.
What do we believe these days? Will we have kids? What’s going on in Therapy? How is the show funded? Why haven’t we done more live shows? Will we do more? Why doesn’t Zac want to talk about God? Religious and societal pressures around marriage, children, and parenting. What’s next for the podcast in 2018?
We jump right back into it with Grace continuing her story of what it was like letting her Christian friends know about her relationship with Dave, the baby eating Atheist.
What’s so beautiful about their story is how their differing beliefs created a safe space for them to each ask the hard questions of each other and not only compromise but grow together...
A man loves a woman, so an Atheist marries a Christian. Grace (a Christian) meets Dave (an Atheist), they work through their differences, become friends, fall in love, and get married. Is that allowed? Does it matter? How did they do it? What about their families?
One evening in Whittier California, Dave and Grace had me over for dinner and drinks at their place to talk about their relationship, marriage, and story of joining despite their different beliefs...
Ron Smith is a 6'8" pleasure to be around. We converse around punk rock, spiritual abuse, abuse, atheism, agnosticism, Catholicism, being bitter and angry, and finding joy in our now, lives of liberality.
Ron was born and raised on the Indianapolis' east side to an interesting kind of Christian home. My father was a working class Immanuel Kant, and my mother a sharp-tongued Voltaire who was, and still is, cynical towards organized religion...
So for the first time, we record while drinking genuine, fancy, delicious cocktails. Because we're with a real bartender this time. Derek Pete, raised Seventh Day Adventist now atheist makes us a fantastic cocktail called The Last Word.
Derek promised me that he would be asking me a bunch of questions if he ever came on the show. He fulfilled that promise! So in this first episode with Derek, he becomes the interviewer and me the interviewee.
