Episode 533 – Answering the Hard Questions with Tony Miller
This week, we are once again joined by our friend Tony Miller! Tony works at Renaissance Festivals around the country as Shamus the Insulter but at the end of each day, he becomes Question Man! He will answer any question asked truthfully and he is talking to us about what he does when faced with questions from evangelicals, anti abortionists, and outright racists. It’s a great exploration of how to get people to think when all they are really looking for is a fight. He also gets a crack at our newest set of five questions!

This week, we are joined by frequent guest Byron Miller, one of the proprietors of Broomhilde at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.

This week is a new set of Geeky Boners in 3D! Nick has a new 3D printer and he has been having a great time with it.

Episode 529 – Twitch with Mike D
This week, we are joined by our friend Mike Deneen, who is a Twitch streamer. We all feel like we are maybe just a little bit too old to be into streaming but we talk to Mike about it and get some insight into what “Retro” games are. Fortunately, some of the games Mike identifies as “Retro” are games Tim actually remembers playing when he was a kid. Mike will actually be doing a bunch of streaming during September including possibly ET the Video game! Check out his Twitch stream here!

They also both get the chance to answer our five questions!

Episode 527 – CONvergence 2022
It’s hard to believe we’ve been recording this podcast for ten years but CONvergence 2022 marks our ten year aniverssary! Not really because it’s a month later than usual but that’s being super pedantic. The convention happens this week and it’s going to be – well – we have no idea what it’s going to be like. But we’ll be there and you can listen to this episode to find out what we’ll be doing!

This week, we return to the movie theater (socially distanced and masked) to check out the latest entry in the MCU – Thor: Love and Thunder! We are joined by our friend Kirky Traylor-Thorson, a longtime fan of Thor and we assume, love and thunder. We spoil the shit out of the movie so if you don’t want to know what Natalie Portman is doing with Mjoilnir, watch the movie first! It’ll be on Disney + in no time!

Episode 524 – The Black Phone
This week, we take a look at The Black Phone! The new horror film created by Scott Derrickson and friend of the show C. Robert Cargill is a creepy delight. We talk about the movie and the original story by Joe Hill, who looks a lot more like Stephen King than Tim does. Why could that be? Oh – we spoil the shit out of it!
45 minutes | Jul 12, 2022

Mike joins us to talk about non believers in politics, the process of being a state representative, and whether or not the Minnesota Legislature accidentally legalized chewables.

Episode 520 – Everything Everywhere All at Once
This week, we discuss the film “Everything, Everywhere All at Once” starting Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu and Ke Huy Quan. It’s a mind bender of a movie that is very easy to spoil so we recommend you watch the film before you listen. The movie is great and has a very nice atheist perspective that was fun to see in something approaching mainstream entertainment.

Episode 519 – Uvalde and Buffalo
This week’s episode was recorded on the same day twenty one people were murdered in a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. The details of that event have continued to unfold since we recorded and we have learned of much more beyond the simple statistics of the dead. Still, this episode was recorded when the three of us were raw with emotion over another shooting in America and found ourselves asking “when will this all stop?”
41 minutes | Jun 7, 2022
Episode 518 – The Velocipastor
This week, we are joined by the Reverend Matt Kessen to discuss The Velocipastor. We though it was going to be a fun little romp through a ridiculous dinosaur themed religious movie. Oh boy were we wrong. We are unable to discuss bad dinosaur science or even bad Christianity because the movie is just bad. The kind of bad that makes you hide your face when you say you’ve watched it. So don’t watch it. Just listen to this episode and you will have done enough.

Episode 517 – Moon Knight
Mark Sherman returns and that means we are discussing a new Marvel Series on Disney Plus! This week, our topic is Moon Knight, one of Marvel’s less known characters.

Episode 515 – Midwest Sci-Fi Short Film Festival
This week, we watched a bunch of short films as part of the online Midwest Sci-Fi short film festival. We review most of the films in the festival for their April weekend. It was a lot of fun and we encourage folks to check out their next online festival, which will be in June. Link!

Episode 514 – An Interview with God
This week, we watched “An Interview with God” starring David Straithairn. Straithairn has also appeared in the Bourne Ultimatum, which is a good movie. Unlike this Christian apologist film in which a journalist sits down with someone who claims to be god and interviews him. That’s all the movie is about. At least the title is accurate.
