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.

Love,

--Joe

Regarding the recent thread here about alternative podcasts, I started a new post here: http://www.atheistnexus.org/forum/topics/podcast-list to discuss favorite podcasts.
Comment by Julie Carter on September 1, 2011 at 8:50pm
MY problem is that I don't have enough time to listen to all the podcasts I'd like to! I find soooo much good information about skeptical topics and atheist topics and evolution vs. creationism and science (I'm a scientist), etc., online that some days I spend hours and hours reading everything I can, and I get nothing else done in my life. I listen to podcasts sometimes in the car, but I just run out of room for learning all the things I want to.

And don't forget all the awesomeness on YouTube!
Comment by Joe Tomberlin on September 1, 2011 at 8:40pm
There are lots of atheist podcasts out there, but yeah, not that many really do the news that much.
But, if want news, and mostly the political type, from an atheist, you should be listening to Cenk Uygur at The Young Turks. He does sometimes do stories you normally wouldn't hear anywhere else but there or on an atheist new podcast.
Comment by Joseph P on September 1, 2011 at 6:52pm
They're not doing as much topic on The Atheist Experience since they got cut down to an hour format.  They used to do 45 minutes or more of lecture time or news coverage, back when they had so much more time to work with.
Comment by Nancy Norton on September 1, 2011 at 1:53pm

I miss Atheist News and Chariots of Iron, too. I hope they come back at some point, but I realize that a putting out a podcast can take a big bite out of real life.

 

A couple of suggestions, if you're specifically looking for news with an atheist slant, are The Non Prophets, and Dogma Free America. Both can be be pretty newsy, but are also somewhat intermittent. The Atheist Experience is essential and can include news when they aren't swamped with callers. If you also like skeptical podcasts, there is always the essential Skeptic's Guide to the Universe.

I'm not the biggest fan of Dave, but I think he represented himself well. I also don't think the idea was to change anyone's opinion in a four min segment, but to provide a viewpoint that, hey, atheists aren't spawn of the devil, and do all of the things theists do when disaster is on the horizon, namely, prepare.

RE: Dave Silverman's appearance on Fox News

 

Four minutes in enemy territory. That's what Dave got. From my perspective, his appearance didn't do much for our cause. Dave got himself trolled. There's a time and a place for combative tactics, but that wasn't it. Here was a chance to point out all the good things being done by atheist groups and people. Instead of spending time stating that the atheists don't need to have the comfort of invisible unicorns, he's dragged into playground "YOU! NO YOU!" arguments. 

 

I guess I just have a problem with the tactics he chose. I don't think the typical fox viewer changed their opinions of us.

Or he's just teasing us.

Comment by Joseph P on August 25, 2011 at 7:48am

He's probably still doing final editing or something.  Chariots of Iron and Atheist News sometimes take a week in editing.

Joe may have just recorded a show and is still working on it.
