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.

My apologies for jumping the gun.
Comment by John Secular Smith on May 27, 2011 at 11:28am

Oh, Nerd, you should totally make that a discussion instead of just a comment!

Comment by John Secular Smith on May 27, 2011 at 6:38am
I don't think the Nerd was addressing you, Paula T.  It is more aimed at TBye and TNT666 who are having a drawn out disagreement.
Comment by Paula T. on May 26, 2011 at 11:54pm

The Nerd, I was going to send a private message, but you allow only friends to do so.  Ok, seriously, tell me what I'm missing about your link. 


Shut up??  You're ALL begging me?  I asked, nicely, a simple question so that I could better understand the give and take going on in this thread.  If you're trying to be funny, say so.  If you're the type to 'pick on' less active members, I hope someone will tell me.

Comment by Paula T. on May 26, 2011 at 11:46pm
Thanks for the explanation, Susan.
Comment by Susan Stanko on May 26, 2011 at 10:27pm
Paula, of what little I gathered.  TNT was claiming that we have no studies of prison population's religious affiliation.  Tbyte called her on it and she got upset.  This is not the first time that she has said some strange things.  Probably why I try to ignore her posts and before she dumps on me for being sexist.  I am a woman.
Comment by Paula T. on May 26, 2011 at 2:13pm
I'm a woman and still getting my feet wet here and with atheism in general.  Forgive me if I am speaking out of turn, but is there a back story to the 'badgering' going on here?  I'm kinda lost and it's discussions like this that may keep some members from wanting to jump into the conversation.  I certainly don't want to be badgered or have my posts picked apart.  Is it just me??
Comment by John Secular Smith on May 26, 2011 at 1:55pm
Stand for?  Seems more like two people talking past each other, which is unfortunate, as you both seem to have real points to make. 
Comment by TNT666 on May 26, 2011 at 1:38pm

mm, PMing is for friends, this is obviously not the case here. It's an issue of badgering. And actually it's a good thing that it gets done in public because it shows what our members really stand for.

Comment by John Secular Smith on May 26, 2011 at 1:29pm
I second the Nerd, take your discussion to one-on-one messaging please.
