Geeks Without God on Atheists Talk


Atheism is becoming easier to talk about; we’re meeting more people who identify as atheist, we’re forming suppport groups via social media, we’re seeing more positive representations of atheism and nonbelief in popular media. And because we’re talking about atheism more, we’re beginning to notice atheism intersecting with other areas of our culture. Geeks Without God is a podcast with one foot in the atheist community and the other firmly planed in geekdom. The weekly podcast is hosted by three local comedians – Tim Wick, Molly Glover and Nick Glover. All three take part in local science fiction/fantasy conventions, the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and various comedic and acting groups in the Twin Cities. And of course, they’re all raging atheists.

The first Geeks Without God podcast went up on iTunes on July 9th, 2012. 80 episodes later, Geeks Without God has exploded in popularity and now enjoys an international following. The podcasts regularly feature local guests, they have appeared at numerous geek and skeptical conferences to do live recordings of the podcast, and they have run fundraising campaigns to support the secular summer camp, Camp Quest. In the show’s one and a half year history, Tim, Nick and Molly have discussed comic books, leaving religion, glowing frogs, morality, Douglas Adams, Christian roleplaying games, sandwiches, separation of church and state, parenting, Pacific Rim and Ray Comfort. Among other topics.

We hope you will join us this Sunday when Tim Wick, Molly Glover and Nick Glover join Atheists Talk – live in the studio! – to discuss Geeks Without God.

    Sexism is not on the list you give of topics the Geeks have previously discussed on GWG. I listened to them on AM 950, “Atheist’s Talk” this morning or I should say some of it. One of the guys, I don’t know which one persistently interrupted and talked over the others. Yes, it’s tolerable, rude but tolerable, in person where one can still follow the conversation but on radio it doesn’t work. One person’s voice blocks the others. And when it’s a guy, and it almost always is, I get pissed off at my own gender again. Guys, don’t do that.
