UTBB Episode 31 : Skeptically Yours, Kentucky

We’re up to our usual tomfoolery this week! In the intro we plug Not Another Atheist Podcast; delve into two stories, one about a reality show getting it completely and utterly wrong about atheists, and one about Charlie Hebdo apparently waving the white flag, though no one can blame them. We then talk briefly about the Confederate Flag march in Columbia, SC, and how the KKK and White Supremacists are really just total assholes.

Chris then interviews Bluegrass Skeptic, a blogger and activist hailing from a redneck town in Northern Kentucky, mere miles from the bridge over the river into Cincinnati. She talks about her struggles being atheist in a small town; her philosophy on atheism and humanism; her experiences as a mail truck driver for U.S. Postal Service; her activism; and even her views on the failure of Capitalism as an economic system. It’s a wide-ranging interview, but ultimately a great conversation with an intensely interesting personality. Listen, enjoy, and share!

UTBB Episode 10 : The Bible Belt Gets Quranified

For our 10th episode, we have our very first interview, and we were honored to have Paul from Quranify Me join us for a chat. Highlights of our conversation include his future plans for his show; his disdain for prominent Muslim apologists (CJ Werleman, Mo Ansar, and Ben Affleck were mentioned); Paul’s encounters with the dark side of Southern culture in Alabama; his reaction to the Charlie Hebdo attack; and I also announce a contest to win a Quranify Me “Got Guilt?” T-shirt when you donate to Paul’s favorite charity, The AHA Foundation! There’s also lots of laughs and profanity as well, of course. A show the pedophile Prophet himself would approve of!

UTBB Episode 9 : Do It For Satan!

Satan and exploitation are themes in this installment of Unbuckling The Bible Belt. We find out that the Pope is ok with meeting speech with violence; an interactive display for Satan may be on tap in OKC; Orange County throws in the towel and takes out the bible; A lady in Memphis sees evil symbols in taillights; and a little boy didn’t go to heaven after all, but it’s ok, because people are making money! So bring your Satanic bible and your rosary, and prepare for a wild ride!

UTBB Episode 8 : Bad News, Better News

We had technical difficulties on this episode, thus apologies are due in advance for the shorter than usual length as well as the subpar audio quality (one segment was completely unusable; the rest we had to use a backup recording). But the show must go on! So settle in and hear our takes on the Charlie Hebdo attack and the issues surrounding it; the barbaric punishment of a Saudi blogger for speaking his mind; the town in Alabama who is literally under God; and a club for school kids who actually want to think for themselves. Once you get past the sound quality, you’ll be glad you listened!
