Atheist News Podcast Project

Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Am I the only one who can't hear the latest show [ep#39]? I get the opening introduction and then silence.

It was you crazy bastards that did it, not me! Thanks everyone!

That's why I have a hand-me-down Christmas tree!  We'll probably get a little baby live one, and then plant it next season.

Comment by Paula T. on December 15, 2010 at 4:25pm

I like the tree topper!  A bit pricey for me, but still cool!  And I use an artificial tree that will last for many years :)

Comment by TNT666 on December 15, 2010 at 4:03pm

Hey... an even better topper for atheists is to not kill a tree to create a mere holiday decoration!

I wonder what a Vampyre would look like in one of those airport body scanners?
Comment by linda wagner on December 2, 2010 at 6:12pm
Reading, personal experience, friends that are real vampires. I'm just kidding, this is not a serious subject. Since they don't really exist you can say anything you want. Any body can be an expert.

Nothing godlike at all, but the pictures in this article are just amazing.
