Unbuckling The Bible Belt podcast is live!

I am excited to announce that the podcast that is the companion to this blog is now live! Go check out the inaugural podcast here. Also, you can go head on over to Facebook and show a little love by “liking” the page here! I’m not quite sure how often we will able to produce the podcast, but I’m hoping it will be at least twice a month. The podcast will be on iTunes and Stitcher as soon as it goes through the review process. Comments can be left on the blog, on the Facebook page, or you can also email us at unbuckling@gmail.com.

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.

    Hi Guys. Bobby C here from the No Religion Required Podcast. Your first episode sounded great! Is it available on iTunes? I tried to find it but was unsuccessful.

      Hey Bobby, it should be up on iTunes in the next day or so. I got the confirmation email a couple of hours ago. Thanks for the positive feedback! Just make sure to give it a review, if you can.
