87: My Path to Atheism w. Trenton Campbell (Pt 1)

Today’s episode is my discussion with my long-lost cousin, Trenton Campbell. Trenton and I had very similar small town Christian upbringings. We attended the same church and learned the same theology, but until very recently, he and I had basically never really discussed…. well, anything. When our church disbanded, Trenton and I rarely ever even saw each other for many years and neither of us really knew where the other was in life, thoughts, or beliefs until one day, thanks to maybe God...

80: A Rebuttal to #HampsteadJustice w. Flo Destroyer

Ok, so this episode was so incredibly unplanned that I'm not sure where to start... Last Monday morning I had Tom Dunn on to discuss the Hampstead case and his awareness movement, The Legendary Campaign. That same night Tom came back on to the AntiNews Live broadcast for what was supposed to be a short segment promoting his campaign again, but a few of our UK listeners with differing viewpoints from Tom's had different plans for the night. We received a barrage of comments from people...


AntiNews 07: Tom Dunn vs Angry YouTube Commenters on #HampsteadJustice

Well, our initial plan, stream, and ideas hit the fan on this one... but that's what this show is all about. The agenda for the evening was supposed to be... preshow, cover a news article, bring on Tom Dunn to talk briefly about The Legendary Campaign, then go back to the news. What ended up happening was something more along the lines of..... start show, stream crashes, restart tech, restart stream, back up just in time to bring Tom on, people who disagree with Tom on #HampsteadJustice...
