Zachrilege Cast #175 -- Callie Wright

In my first interview of 2019 and Callie’s third time on the show, we lament the end of Reasoncon, talk Klingon, how Callie became a roller derby queen and I didn’t ask one cute dog question. It’s been four years, I’m slipping. Callie links: Gaytheist Manifesto/Queersplaining Interview with Arian Foster (on his show) First ZC interview...


Zachrilege Cast #174 -- 2018 can bleep off panel number two

What happens when you invite a Christian, two atheists and a boatload of booze into one chat? Occasional too long answers and for the most part a spirited discussion on what our 2018s were like and reason for hope for 2019. Find Alex Moreschi on Facebook. He’ll friend you. Even you, weird but awesome people. The Episcopal church Morgan...


Zachrilege Cast #173 -- 2018 can bleep off panel part one

Amy Kuhel, Jeanne and Deborah (for a while, anyway) just shoot the you know what as we recap 2018 and talk about favorite holiday movies, meals, and how meeting strangers on the internet can pay off. Links Live Read Support me on...

Zachrilege Cast #172 -- Dr. Kristi Winters

To know Dr. Kristi Winters, I thought a 101 course was necessary. If you know her well I think you’ll still enjoy the primer. She hosts her own youtube channel and does a weekly hangout with Kevin Logan, and she has some kind of informal title in the Outrage Brigade. She’ll know her side and yours better than you in any potential debate. Kristi links: Live Read (Left at the...


Zachrilege Cast #171 -- Kevin Francis

Kevin co-hosts the amazing Canadian podcast Left of the Valley, just celebrating their 200th episode. We talked about his leaving Catholicism, starting a show in the fertile 2014 time period, how to bribe your atheist heroes with booze and of course, politics. There’s a waiting list to move to Kevin’s couch near Vancouver, eh. Left at the Valley Live Read = Happy Hour with Kristi Winters, Kevin...


Zachrilege Cast #170 -- Deborah and Jeanne

The chat room was deserted as Deborah and Jeanne return. Deborah shared the following stories that we will discuss. There’s a Thanksgiving food tangent in there when Deborah had a brief power outage. The problem with the 2020 census and a citizenship question Motel 6 ICE settlement Sephardic Jews in...


Zachrilege Cast #169 -- Maddy Love

Maddy Love co or totally hosts Atheists Talk, Minnesota Trans Atheist Podcast and Love without Limits. We learn how to crock pot quickly, when Jesus left her life and how 23 years of marriage led to yet another podcast. Maddy links: Live Read (The Right...


Zachrilege Cast #168 -- Alex Moreschi

What does this minister and chaplain do after the end of No Religion Required? Well he’s constantly on the lookout for community and he’s still banging the drum (or a beer bottle) for the atheist community. We talked about his upbringing, becoming a chaplain, why community is important, what’s more important than listening (not much) and what faith communities can learn from non-faith and vice versa. Find Alex Moreschi on Facebook. He’ll friend you. Even you, weird but awesome...


Zachrilege Cast #167 -- Jen and Shea of Waiting 4 Wrath

Waiting 4 Wrath is a news, beer, more news, more beer, and generally four people having a great time. I had on two of the hosts a long, long time ago and I'm finally getting to complete my set with Shea and Jen. We'll talk Wyoming politics, how you should mix your beer with your podcasting and how to influence people and make friends in the atheist podcasting community. Waiting 4 Wrath links Original show episode 13 with Aaron and Steve...


Zachrilege Cast #166 -- Mickey Dubrow

Mickey Dubrow is the author of the recently published American Judas. In this happy tale we see America shattering the wall between church and state. I know, even more than in our current reality. Mickey’s been in the writing game for a while and this is his first traditionally published book. Please support him and get it because it’s a quality read. We talked about his thoughts as a Jewish person about the term Judeo Christian, I’m not quite sure he liked my comparison of the Old Testament...


Zachrilege Cast #165 -- Unapologetix

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. Unapologetix links: Brent’s...


Zachrilege Cast #164 -- ReasonCon RIP

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...


Zachrilege Cast #163 -- Delissa McAdoo

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 Black Nonbelievers cruise Black Nonbelievers Delissa interview 50 Bold...


Zachrilege Cast #162 -- Karen Garst

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. Karen...


Zachrilege Cast #161 -- Aron Ra

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...


Zachrilege Cast #160 -- The RFK Tapes

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. Shadow Play by William Klaber (co-producer of The RFK Tapes): A Disturbance of Fate by Mitchell Freedman (alt history...


Zachrilege Cast #159 -- My 9/11 Personal Journey

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. AJC article Walkaway by Cory Doctorow:...


Zachrilege Cast #158 -- Felicia Entwistle

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. Felicia links: Live Read Notes Milo’s...


Zachrilege Cast #157 -- Mandisa Thomas

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. Mandisa...


Zachrilege Cast #156 -- Kevin Logan

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. Kevin Links Twitter: Youtube: Latest Let Them Eat Kek:...
