In this episode Chris the Seethin’ Heathen and SJ are introduced as the show’s intrepid hosts. We discuss the goals of the show, which include lots of cussin’ and atheist/anti-theist ranting, but also with logic and reason utilized when possible. We present all of this titillating information from a Tennessee perspective.

Our main story this week is the passage of Amendement 1 to the Tennessee State Constitution, which allows the legislature to pass laws regulating abortion in our grand state. We talk about what the law really means, and what the effects may be, and how fucked up the whole thing is. We also somehow manage to segue into the Brittany Maynard case, and how all the Christians aren’t acting terribly Christian.
