202 - Death and Distractions

April 18th, 2018

00:0000:00

We recorded this episode on Friday the 13th, so feel free to blame an arbitrarily-picked superstitious date for any problems with it.

 

Matt had to take care of some things, so Ryan and Dan were left to their own devices this week - and what a week it was.

 

In this episode: 

  • Dan's friend Lindi Inman died from lung cancer
  • Everybody is weird about death; we're all just weird about it in our own way
  • American Atheists President David Silverman has been fired
  • Trump launched missile strikes against Syria
  • Another DAMF encounter
  • The Rapture is coming... again
  • Pastor who celebrated Orlando Pulse shooting has been convicted of child molestation
  • Wisconsin Republican Paul Ryan is retiring
  • PATRONS ONLY - Wayne Allyn Root says Robert Mueller has penis envy
  • PATRONS ONLY - Alex Jones claims attractive women tried to date him in high school to convert him to Satanism

Closing Song: Puscifer - The Humbling River

200 - 200

April 5th, 2018

00:0000:00
Thanks for your patience while we worked to get this episode out. Dan has been SUPER busy lately and wasn't able to get this out as quickly as he wanted. We hope you all got a bit of a laugh out of the April Fool's Day release of the "fake" episode #200. We look forward to telling you more about how that happened.

 

As we prepare to wrap up season four (FOUR!? Holy crap!) of the Godless Rebelution, we have also hit the 200 episode milestone. That's one helluva lot of content, especially when considering the length of each show.

 

Matt went through and pulled clips from a bunch of episodes that make up about half of this one. We also cover a few other news items and reminisce about the history of the show for a bit.

 

Our Patreon patrons get to finally hear the incredibly awkward question Ryan asked our guest, Michael Rupp, at the end of episode #120.

 

Finally, we'd like to thank you from the bottom our godless hearts for all of the support you've provided over the last four years and two hundred episodes. We wouldn't be doing this if it weren't for you, our incredible listeners.

March 26th, 2018

Jeremy Runnells was, unfortunately, too sick to be able to appear in this episode. We're working on re-scheduling him & will have him on the show in the very near future.

 

What kind of inflamed asshole attacks Stephen Hawking after he's dead? We found a New Zealand pastor who did just that. Now we hope we can lose him.

 

We also talked about:

  • The American Atheists convention is next weekend!
  • Hannibal Buress' microphone was cut off after making a joke about the Catholic Church's history of sexual abuse while performing at Loyola University

March 12th, 2018

00:0000:00
******************************

The deadline for sending us your comments is Sunday, March 18!

 

We're only three episodes away from 200, so be sure to send your thoughts to us at godlessrebelution@gmail.com so we can play them on the show!
******************************

 

We know "thoughts and prayers" is roughly equivalent to a shrug and a sigh, but Florida State Senator Kelli Stargel (R) says they "are really the only thing that’s gonna stop the evil from within the individual who is taking up their arms to do this kind of a massacre.”

 

Other stories include:

  • Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz says the Florida school shooting survivors "need a belief in God and Jesus Christ"
  • Utah politics makes another embarrassing entry as we talk about a recent letter sent by Utah Governor Gary Herbert pleading with "religious leaders" to pray for desired weather
  • The social contract between police and citizens
  • We finish up the regular portion of the show talking about Jana Riess' recent post on Rob Porter, Mormonism, and siding with the abuser
  • PATRONS ONLY -  Things Trump has said and done that make him unfit to be President of the United States

** SPECIAL NOTE **

 

We're only four episodes away from 200, so be sure to send your thoughts to us at godlessrebelution@gmail.com so we can play them on the show!

 

We spend the bulk of the show going through this terrible bit of garbage from the LDS Living website.

 

We also talk about:

  • "As a Christian," how can any god allow horrific evil like the Florida school shooting?
  • A woman claims she saw Bigfoot, and she's suing the state of California to "prove" it.
  • Georgia's Lt. Governor warns Delta that he'll block tax legislation benefiting airlines unless Delta reverses its decision to stop offering discounts to NRA members
  • PATRONS ONLY -  Our conversation drifted into the dark and disturbing world of serial killers (feel free to blame Ryan). As part of this conversation, Dan read a letter from Albert Fish to the mother of one of his victims. It's fucking dark. It's also the first time we've felt compelled to offer a trigger warning ahead of the segment.

January 31st, 2018

190 - Kissing Hank’s Shithole

January 24th, 2018

00:0000:00

We were delighted to speak with James Huber, author of "Kissing Hank's Ass." James' parable has been used as the basis for several different short films which expose (in a very humorous way) some of the problems with religious beliefs.

 

You should definitely watch the "Kissing Hank's Ass" video before listening to the show. The version with the best production quality is probably this one from 2013: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaFZQBb2srM

 

We also talk about Trump's "shithole" comment, the missile warning in Hawaii, and Pornhub's viewership stats during and after the missile warning.

Patrons also get a lot more information about what Matt has been dealing with during his absence.

187 - A Cold, Frankensex, and Moore

January 3rd, 2018

00:0000:00

Is it too late for a Three Wise Men-themed title?

 

Once again, Grant Larimer had nothing better to do on a Friday night than to eat pizza, drink alcohol, and talk about shit with Ryan and Dan - but that sounds like a goddamned good time anyway, right?

 

Anyway, Dan is getting over a head cold, we talk about Al Franken, GMOs, Sweet Cakes, Roy Moore, libertarianism, and a Utah teacher who got fired for... well, shit... we're not sure why they were fired.

186 - In the Name of Jesus, Go See a Doctor!

December 27th, 2017

00:0000:00

We can hardly believe it's been a whole year since we didn't become better people. Oh, well. Maybe next year.

 

It's the last show of the year, and with literally negative fifteen minutes notice, Grant Larimer was kind enough to fill in for Matt again this week as we cover the top ten (or so) posts made by Right Wing Watch this year.

December 21st, 2017

00:0000:00

Christopher Hitchens died six years ago last week. Out of The Four Horsemen, he was Dan's personal favorite.

 

Matt wasn't able to join us tonight, but fear not! The Purple Dragon (AKA Grant Larimer) joined us in-studio to talk about a bunch of things going on in the news.

 

Patreon subscribers get a bit of a behind-the-scenes look at the show this week. We included some off-the-air commentary on a range of things, including flat-earthers, Ryan's short film contest entry, and much more!

183 - Flynn Pleads Guilty

December 4th, 2017

00:0000:00

Did you have a good holiday break? We certainly hope so!

 

We were supposed to record on Tuesday, but Ryan is sick and Matt was unavailable. With all that happened in the news today, it turned out to be a good thing Dan wasn't able to record until this afternoon.

 

This episode deals with a lot of pretty heavy stuff - from the murder-suicide committed by an atheist activist early this week, to today's news of Michael Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the FBI.

 

Dan flies solo for an entire show for the first time since we started the Godless Rebelution almost four years ago. Strap in... it may be a bumpy ride.

182 - The Illusion of Free Will

November 20th, 2017

00:0000:00

Is free will an illusion? Is the illusion of free will an illusion itself? Tune in to hear Matt and Dan expand more on their thoughts about free will. Matt finally decided what his position is.

 

Ryan is glamping in Goblin Valley, and we'll be taking a break next week for Thanksgiving, but we'll all be back in the studio in a couple weeks.

 

We hope you have a great holiday!

Also, Matt went to church last Sunday & tells us about that experience.

September 1st, 2017

00:0000:00

FINALLY! Sheesh!

 

Did you miss us? It's been nearly two  weeks since we posted a show. This would have come out earlier, but Dan had an editing snag that cost him an entire day. At least a lesson was hammered home yet again.  C'est la vie...

 

Dan met Thomas Westbrook at the 2017 American Atheists convention in South Carolina. He's a great guy who owns the Holy Koolaid channel on YouTube.

169 - Andrew and Myrna Vodopich

August 21st, 2017

00:0000:00
Remember news about the Satanic invocation offered in Colorado recently? Well, we were lucky enough to have the person who offered the invocation in-studio with us this week, along with his wife.

 

Andrew and Myrna are both ex-Jehovah's Witnesses who now identify as Satanists aligned with The Satanic Temple. They're also two of the nicest people you would ever care to meet. They're both a bit shy and unassuming, funny, generous, caring, and they make one of the cutest damned couples (no pun intended) we've met.

 

The bulk of this week's show is our interview with Andrew and Myrna about how they went from believing JWs to atheistic Satanists. It's a great interview. If you have even half as much fun listening to the show as we had recording with them, you're in for a real treat.

 

Other items of note in this episode:

  • Dan recaps what led a Trump supporter to ask someone why they are motivated to tell people the truth
  • A new "What Matters" segment on Nazism in Charlottesville
  • PATRONS ONLY - Trae Crowder on Charlottesville
  • PATRONS ONLY - Dave Daubenmire: Those who opposed "patriots" in Charlottesville are God haters
  • PATRONS ONLY - Kevin Swanson: Schools that violate God's law should be burned down
  • PATRONS ONLY - Jim Bakker: On double rainbows, the solar eclipse, and the danger of mocking God's prophets

164 - Megan Kennedy

July 17th, 2017

00:0000:00
You may remember that we previously released (in episode #158) a talk on the Mountain Meadows Massacre delivered by Megan Kennedy for The Satanic Temple Salt Lake City chapter before it was recently disbanded. Because of that, we knew Megan was incredibly smart, so we were excited to have her join us in-studio for an interview. What we didn't know until she arrived is just how much fun we'd have recording with her. She's definitely one of the best guests we've had on the show.

 

We had a long and wide-ranging interview and discussion with Megan, topped off with getting her input on the recent news of Hobby Lobby being fined $3 million dollars for smuggling ancient Iraqi artifacts. Her education in religious history, archaeology, and anthropology was a perfect fit to cover the story, and we think our Patreon patrons will really enjoy it.

 

Patreon subscribers get exclusive access to our coverage of the Hobby Lobby story with more than 35 minutes of extras this week, including extended outtakes!

She is working on her fourth book, has five podcasts, has appeared in countless other podcasts, and we were finally able to get her on the Godless Rebelution.

158 - The Mountain Meadows Massacre & Mormon Extremism

June 2nd, 2017

00:0000:00

This episode isn't our usual fare. It's a talk that was organized by the Utah Chapter of The Satanic Temple as part of their Religious Education Series, which was aimed at analyzing religion throughout history and how it affects (some would say "infects") various aspects of our modern lives. The talk was presented by Megan Kennedy, who holds Bachelor of Arts degrees in History and Religious Studies from the University of Utah. She is a professional writer and photographer.

 

Ryan was kind enough to bring his filming gear, so we also have video of the presentation available on our YouTube channel. Ryan wired Megan with a lavalier (one of those fancy lapel microphones) for great sound, but the rest of the audio was captured on a mobile recording device and a microphone mounted to the top of Ryan's video camera, so it's not fantastic - but it's decent.

 

We're currently trying to schedule Megan as a guest for a future episode or episodes. She's got a lot of great information to share!

 

We'll be publishing episode #159 this weekend for our Patreon supporters, and on Monday for our regular feed.

157 - The Beginning of the End for Trump

May 22nd, 2017

Our intrepid field reporter, Alexander Scholl, once again prepared a whole lot of great information for us to share with you, dear listener. If news from the last week in politics has left you reeling, we're here to help cut through the noise.

 

With the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate ties between Russia and the Trump campaign and administration, it's really starting to look like the beginning of the end for the orange menace.

155 - Roy Jeffs

May 8th, 2017

00:0000:00

Roy Jeffs is the son of Warren Jeffs - the infamous cult leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who is currently serving life plus 20 years in prison after his conviction for child sexual assault.

 

The FLDS cult still practices polygamy as an offshoot of the mainstream LDS Church which "officially" abandoned plural marriage on Earth (it will still be practiced in the afterlife) in 1890.

 

Roy fled the FLDS cult three years ago, and his story has been featured nationally by such sources as CNN and The Daily Beast. He is now an open atheist living in Salt Lake City, and he joined us in-studio for a wide-ranging interview.

 

Patreon subscribers get more than 45 minutes of extras this week, including an extended interview with Roy, and a round-table discussion of ridiculous relgious questions from Yahoo Answers.
