Open Thread on AETV #755

A bit late, but I know you want to talk about it.

I don’t think Matt and Tracie were aware of this, and some commenters may not be either: Dale, the Australian guy who took up half the show, was not kidding — or if he was, he kids a lot.  He used to be a persistent troll at The Atheist Experience and The Non-Prophets – Fans page on Facebook, before he got himself banned.  The members taunted him to call, and it sounds like they were not disappointed.

Of course, Dale managed to spin this train wreck of a call in an astonishingly dishonest way: he recut the video to only include the last minute where Matt finished up and hung up on him, maybe hoping people wouldn’t realize that they spent a good 20-30 minutes on him first.  He’s got open comments on this video,  so I’m sure that means he would welcome people stopping by and explaining more details about the call, perhaps linking to an uncut version, etc…

Another year, another award for The Atheist Experience

Apparently we’re About.com’s favorite Agnostic / Atheist Podcast in 2011.  Again.  Who knew?

It would seem that this now makes two different awards that we’ve won two years in a row.  We’d like to thank the academy, and also all you most excellent loyal listeners who are supporting phase one of our master plan to

take over the world.

Open thread on episode TAE #748

Russell and Don, “The Failure of the Second Coming.”

By the way, I should have put up an open thread on last week’s episodes of TAE and GB as well, but I forgot for a few days.  Then somebody posted “WHY is there no open thread on the latest TAE?  Is it a conspiracy to keep us from talking about what Matt said?”  So first I was like “I should really put up an open thread for the show.”  But then I was all, “Screw that, I’m not gonna do it because I was taunted!  Nyah!”

So anyway, if you want to discuss #747 or the previous Godless Bitches too, feel free.
