Episode 180 – Q the Humanist. We Interview John de Lancie

In this, the 180th episode Kris and yours truly, the Supreme Irreverend Doctor Randy, are joined by actor John de Lancie. Most of our listeners will know John as the smug omnipotent Q from Star Trek The Next Generation; he’s acted in many films including “The Fisher King” and “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” and television series besides Star Trek such as “LA Law” and “Breaking Bad”. I instantly recognized his voice in two installments of Assassin’s Creed. But many listeners probably don’t know the humanist side of John, who was awarded the American Humanists Association Arts Award for 2016.

Episode 177 – The Atheist Delusion, Denouement

We present here the third and final installment of our descent into inebriation, which likely saved our sanity watching this….

Episode 176 – The Atheist Delusion Part Deux

Welcome to Part II of our deconstruction of Ray Comfort’s most recent comedy, The Atheist Delusion. After a short break, we descend deeper into inebriation and wax philosophical. Ray keeps on with his “a book can’t write itself” nonsense, and we keep laughing and eye rolling. I’m still an atheist, Ray! We start with Lawrence Krauss answering Ray’s leading questions that were posed to university students in Part 1…

Episode 174 – The Atheist Delusion Part 1

Part 1 of our look at Ray Comfort’s new video titled The Atheist Delusion. This video was released at the end of July and we purposely avoided any discussion of it on social media to ensure that our reactions were fresh and genuine. Has Ray finally found that golden nugget have us abandoning , or will this be yet another diatribe full of profundities like the banana and crocoduck? We put not only our atheism on the line to find out, but our livers as well! To help us survive we decided to make a drinking game out of it. To that end we found a Christian fallacy bingo card and added a few predictable fallacies specific to the Banana Man. So we have our muscle relaxants and out towels at the ready, and that’s where we begin.
