    • February 5, 2013 at 9:49 PM

      The nice thing about podcasting is that it is something one can do whilst remaining on one’s lazy ass. Episode 3 will be out on Valentine’s Day, but until then, feel free to listen to the first two episodes backwards in search of the secret satanic messages…

    Hey Noah, love the podcast. Just about cracked a rib from laughing so hard at the shit-porn bit. Gimmie Moar! Love the rants too!

    • February 15, 2013 at 8:36 PM

      Thanks. As you can imagine, that skit has gotten some mixed reviews. On the whole, there’s been more positive than negative which is good. My sense of humor doesn’t do “high brow”.

      Thanks for listening. Episode 3 went up yesterday and we’re already hard at work in the planning stages for episode 4. It’ll be up February 28th.

    Just listened to the first episode and loved it! Very smart and funny. Loved the music too, which is rare for me with podcasts. It’s nice to hear more unapologetic voices in the movement who aren’t worried about offending Christians. Just one request–at times, such as during the news in episode 1, it goes a bit fast for me. Could you please slow those portions down in the future? Don’t want to miss anything.

    • March 14, 2013 at 4:04 PM

      Thanks for the comment. Particularly happy to hear that you like the music, as I compose all the music myself.

      I suppose the “speed-talking” thing is a byproduct of trying to fit more than 30 minutes of stuff into a 30 minute format, but you’re not the first to tell me that I talk a bit too fast. My wife’s been saying that for 17 years… I can only promise that I’m working on it. I hope you’ll hear an improvement over the next few episodes. If not, let me know and I’ll ramp up my efforts.

  5. Heresy
    March 14, 2013 at 10:18 PM

    Yes, love the music, especially the piano in the theme and American Jesus. I listened to all the episodes. Thanks for making spring cleaning fly by. Your show is hilarious, and I appreciate the time that must go into writing it and putting it together. The dinner speech to Christians who want to pick a fight is brilliant. I’ve been looking for a response to that crap (happens all the time in the bible belt), and next time, I’ll give them this and drop the mic. C: You hit the nail on the head about something I’d sensed, but couldn’t quite verbalize in the heat of arguments.

    Glad I’m not the only one who mentioned the talking speed. You see, I thought that maybe it was a Southern thing (and then I shuddered to think these people have rubbed off on me). As to the time limits, have you considered doing an hour-long show (or just however long you need to accommodate the material you have)? That way you wouldn’t have to cut things out and wouldn’t have to worry about the clock. I know I’d listen. Thanks again for your hard work. Looking forward to the future episodes.

    • March 14, 2013 at 10:34 PM

      I think that before I moved to an hour long format, I’d be tempted to move to a weekly rather than biweekly show. I may eventually lengthen the program as well, but at this point I really feel like the 30 minute limit improves the overall quality; only the best stuff survives and it forces me to find ways to say a lot in a short time.

      That being said, now that the show has had a bit of success it’s been far easier to arrange interviews, get help from others in the atheist community and find help in researching and writing bits, skits, etc. I’m leery of biting off more than I can chew, but I’m not willing to rule anything out for the future.

  6. Heresy
    March 15, 2013 at 12:04 AM

    Word. It’d be great to hear a podcast every week, and I’d actually prefer that to an hour-long show every two weeks. Just make sure you don’t get overwhelmed. As a listener, it can be tough to wait for new episodes of my favorite shows, but I try to keep in mind that all the podcasters have day jobs, and many have kids.

    The most important thing is that you don’t burn out from all the work of putting the show together, which has to be quite a lot for a show like this. For what it’s worth, I’d advise not to commit to a more frequent schedule and know that it’s perfectly ok to slow down if ever you feel stressed with the bi-weekly one. Hosts who feel burdened by their shows eventually quit, and I don’t want that to happen here.

    Love the fast pace and the intellectually stimulating humor. I also like the 30-minute format, which works really well for me, but would take more shows if they were there for the taking. Thanks for the great production.

    Hey Noah.

    You’ve got a smooth voice for podcasting and a clear grasp on entertainment. I found your show on a whim, just searching atheist on iTunes. I think you deserve more attention, but then again, I’m only five episodes in.

    Also. congratulations on being one of the few atheists to discourage teaching children to have “open minds” about obvious scams like religion. Too often, I hear atheists say they don’t want to pound their views into their children like their parents did to them, so they’ll let their kids “decide for themselves.”

    Having been lucky enough to avoid a childhood of indoctrination, I assume this reasoning is a remnant of their biblically traumatic childhood, that they still cannot help but place religion on a pedestal higher than reason. I’m sorry guys, but I’m not going to have my kids grow up thinking it’s okay to believe in ancient mythology. Or ANYTHING that lacks a reasonable amount of evidence!

    Anyway, this random internetter encourages you throw yourself fully into this podcast. It has serious potential, in my opinion, and I am an avid listener of atheist podcasts in particular. By this, I mean increase the frequency of your output! Biweekly is not enough! Unless you don’t have time, which is totally understandable. It’s not like I’m paying you for your work, sucker!

    All the best,
    J.D.

    • March 28, 2013 at 10:54 AM

      Thanks for all the kind words. And I should note that we close off episode 6 with a special announcement and [spoiler alert] I think you’ll like it.

      Thanks for listening!

  10. April 5, 2013 at 2:38 PM

    Just found your podcast on iTunes Noah, and have been thoroughly entertained all day. Man you are a natural. This is actually the first atheist podcast that I have downloaded and I only came across it when I was looking for a new podcast on science. Keep up the good work my man, you now have a fan for life :)… Don’t worry I’m in the UK so it is too difficult for me to stalk you.

    • April 5, 2013 at 2:49 PM

      Thanks for that, Chris. It’s good to know that before I make it to the UK my voice and my debased sense of humor will have long preceded me. Glad to have you listening.

    • April 13, 2013 at 3:49 PM

      Thanks! We definitely need all the stars we can get. It takes five 5-star reviews to cancel out one religitard with a grudge so we definitely appreciate that. Thanks for listening. Hope we can keep earning half an hour of your commute.

  12. April 17, 2013 at 3:02 AM

    Just started listening to your podcast and I’m really impressed.I live in Scotland and I find it unbelievable the shit that your individual states get up to in terms of religious legislation. If all that money was channeled into projects that really were for the good of all mankind we would not have the truly messed up world we have now. I very much appreciate the very intelligent and perceptive take on things.

    Regads,

    Five Stars. A masterful delivery of ruthless scorn and abuse that leaves me convulsed with laughter. Totally uncompromising application of reason peppered with witty and rude intolerance of all theistic delusions. The perfect counterbalance to religious fundamentalism. Thanks!

    I love the show! Thanks for moving to a weekly format, you make my Fridays awesome. The best way to show support is with money and I plan on making a very sizeable donation as soon as I can.

    Hey Noah
    how about picking a verse or so and analyze the shit out of it and make jokes and so forth and compare it to how it might have been relevant then compare it to today’s society and show how absurd it is.
    that could be like a new short segment thing like how to get rid of leprosy by sprinkling bird blood.

    • June 27, 2013 at 8:57 PM

    Just the stuff I was looking for on my quest to feed the black hole where my heart used to be. And the quality is amazing, not what I expected from such a young podcast! If you ever run out of religious idiocy, (insert funny face) HAHA which I HAHA highly doubt HAHA (outsert funny face), or if you decide to lengthen the episodes but want other content, you can always turn to one of the many pseudosciences for inspiration. You know, astrology, reflexology, homeopathy and the likes… I’d love to hear your skits and betches on that bullshit. Just… you know… ok? Hm. Just let me compliment you on your fine taste in oozing humour and shitty jokes in general, and take the ffing compliment! I think your format is perfect for ANY unfounded believe, not just religion.
    SUMMARY: fucking awesome show, keep it up! You’ve set the bar high, not just for others but also for yourselves.
    Cheers! Say hi to Ann for me. And wink. She’ll know what it means.

    love your podcast, when you get enough songs you should put out a cd, this will also help raise money.

    • July 7, 2013 at 6:41 PM

      We’re actually planning to put the first five Biblical poems to music and couple them with six other songs, but I’m hoping to improve my sound quality before we lock anything down on that. Appreciate the advice.

    Just enjoying your first episode (immensely). Small point: I work in the area of law and did you know: slavery in its many forms (forced labour and prostitution being the main) is actually just about the biggest criminal problem we have right now, globally, and not just in ‘third world countries’, in quantific terms. Slavery is back in fashion. Slavery is BIG. Slavery is pandemic as we speak! Get your shit (even more) together and get yourselves to TED.com! Gold.

    • July 14, 2013 at 2:00 AM

      Thanks for the listen and comment, bro.

      Sorry if we left the impression in the program that we didn’t recognize that slavery is still a problem in the world. The skit was more aimed at the asinine notion that Jesus was somehow an “abolitionist” and the ridiculous defenses modern Christians use in an effort to whitewash their role in institutionalized slavery.

      Again, can’t thank you enough for listening. This would be way less fun if you didn’t.

    “Part-time Edgar Rice Burroughs protagonist” was hilarious.

    About those anti-Sharia laws: I have to think that, if we ever got to the point where Islamic religious courts were going to replace our judicial system, those state statutes wouldn’t make much difference. It’s almost as if the state representatives didn’t do a lot of careful logical analysis before presenting the bill.

      Excellent point. One might consider as analogy the DOMA nonsense. This bigoted attempt to forestall the tide of tolerance probably expedited the process of full recognition of gay marriage.

    You guys… Thank you for this. I feel reaffirmed in my profound cosmic despair and total godlessnes every time I listen in. It’s had my family in stitches and better able to deal with the 95% of devout churchgoers in Zimbabwe, where we have super pastors driving million dollar cars in a country plagued by poverty and hunger. Actually, you should check out some of the crazy shit that goes on here some time… One guy hired pickpockets to put a few dollars INTO the pockets of his small flock just before he carried out a blessing. Needless to say on discovering the dosh their robes the mostly impoverished crowd swelled to thousands, hundreds of thousands of tithing poor in a matter of weeks. He turned a tidy profit from a couple of hundred investment. Your ‘merican churches are particularly effective and virulent here. There is a giant god factory that has been built over a priceless wetland. The church openly supports our dictatorial government (gave Mugabe 10 million dollars cash for his 80th birthday), and catholic paedophiles run amok. There is a church called Masora which runs from Friday 8am till Sunday 9pm. Never mind your baptist fanatics, Africa, especially Zim – we got that shit DOOOWWWN.

    I have yet to listen to one of your podcasts. I was given a link to your website in the AFA forums. I’ve spent the last five years in Australia, where my husband is from, and we’ve recently ventured back to the state of my birth, good ol’ Georgia. I came to terms with my atheism while living in aus. My husband has been a big help he grew up secular and can give me points of view that I’ve never even considered before. I can’t wait to delve into your archives. And thank you in advance for what you do it is much appreciated. As a side note I’m quit familiar with south GA my step father is from Moultrie!

    Episode 53 – “Procreation Edition” – was excellent as always. Jay Novella was a great guest.

    I have one nitpick, which is a little humourless on my part, but… In the excoriation of the self righteous pharmacist, the spelling of “practise” was criticised. In Australia we speak and write so-called Australian English, which is really British English with a few stupid conventions added. The spelling of practise/practice is the opposite to that of American English – that is, in Australian and British English, “practise” is the verb, and “practice” the noun.

    Thanks. Byeeeeee.

    • February 26, 2014 at 12:29 AM

      Yes, a bit of humor getting lost in translation. We Americans never tire of making fun of everyone else’s use of our common language.

    Found your podcast about a month ago and listened to every episode so far while at work. Noah reminds me of so many people I grew up with from listening to him describe his youth and dabbling in occult, tarot, etc it was like listening to what I went through in my teens and 20’s. Can’t thank you enough Noah for all the entertainment you have provided, I had to become a patron and join up even if it was at the lowest level, I feel like I have to support something that has brought me so much joy. Keep up the poems/songs they are some of my favorite parts and i actually laugh out loud while i’m alone listening. Love the show keep it up, excellent work by Heath and Lucinda as well did not mean to leave them out. Love Heath’s dark sense of humor and Lucinda is absolutely amazing and I love her voice and acting chops in your bits. Love you guys thanks again.

    Hey Noah,

    really love the show – I particularly enjoy your diatribes – and just wanted to comment on the topic you spoke about in your recent diatribe, about the hippy, softie kind of religious people not being representative of religious people in general, that they are actually the worst kind of religious people by giving the crazy fundamentalist religious people a ‘base’ to be held up and giving them credibility, and that a friendly religious person still doesn’t excuse religion.

    I TOTALLY agree with you and I’m actually so glad you’ve said this because I’ve kinda always thought this but never really known how to express or explain why, and the argument comes up a lot during discussions about religion with my family members (as my family is catholic and I used to be a catholic and then became an athiest), and when they would say “oh but not all Muslims are terrorists, most of them are nice people”, or “but what about (whoever) they’re really friendly and they’re christian” I’ve never known what to say to retort this.

    So thanks man – you’ve said what i’ve been trying to say but never known how!

  39. December 5, 2014 at 2:56 PM

    What? No one comments any more? I’ve been going through the back catalogue starting from the first podcast and every one’s a classic in its own right.

    Noah, Heath, and the lovely Mrs. Noah (see how I ironically did a relgio-sexist thing there by subjugating her to the head of the house?) remind me that I am in fact sane. I used to keep wondering, is it just me who thinks Christianity is not just false but utterly absurd? Good, it’s not just me. Noah, Heath, and Lucinda agree and state if forcefully every week.

    Thanks guys!

    Love the show. I’m new to it but it’s already one of my favorites. Only, when I download a show, it gives me the date of the show and no show number. On your list of episodes, I get the number and no date. So when I look back through the last episode I downloaded, it’s difficult to tell which one comes next. I just know that you’ll be super cool humanists and change that right away or at least, whenever you get around to it. JK Thanks

    • December 10, 2014 at 4:05 AM

      Never occurred to me. Definitely goes on the list of shit to fix… thanks.

      • December 14, 2014 at 9:04 PM

        Cool thanks. In the interest in making it as easy as possible, either one can be changed and it would solve it for me. Just for information sake. I know it’s not the main thing on your mind right now. 😛 Again, love the show.

    I love this podcast! My husband and I went to see Saving Christmas at our local dollar theater after listening to your review, and then re-listened to your review after. We couldn’t stop laughing. Thanks for doing what you do!

    • January 20, 2015 at 1:27 AM

      Making “Saving Christmas” an enjoyable experience may not have the societal impact of curing cancer, but I’d argue that it’s at least as difficult. Thanks for providing me with a trump card whenever anyone is bragging about an impressive accomplishment. I’ll simply say, “We made two people enjoy watching Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas” and they’ll just sit back down and offer an acquiescent nod…

    You are three are funny, shit talking, foul mouthed, fuckers and I’m glad I found you. Keep doing it. BTW my brain filled in where the red nose goes. I’m pretty sure that mental image sends the religious to hell, but I could be wrong. Maybe we could broadcast that world wide subliminally and try it out?

    My boyfriend is a devout atheist ( yes that’s meant to be pun-y lol ) turned me onto your show. I do have to say bringing a lil rationality to my lil redneck bible thumping slice of hell has been quite enjoyable. And you have pulled me from the non- committal ranks of agnostics to full blown atheism. Can’t wait for more! 🙂

    1st Apology – didn’t vote for podcast awards as too late !
    Brit perspective – yeah even I could have called a better last play. Where do I sign up for a multi million dollar offensive coaching position ?
    Question – now that your up to the new testament please can you tell me why that if Jesus was the son of god and also god (lower case g is deliberate) thus pure and sin free, then why did he not cast the first stone ? What a wanker ! The previous three words are not necessarily relavent but I know you like British profanity!
    2nd Apology – deep in debt so can not give you money, but rest assured your podcast helps keeps me sane ( relatively speaking).

    Three years of Seth’s pillow talk and more understanding approaches really suited when I identified as an agnostic. But now, as an open atheist, although I still enjoy Thinking, Friendly, Dogma Debate, Cognitive Dissonance, and Sex Nerd Sandra – Scathing Atheist drives the nails deeper into the mythology than anyone else. Glory Hol…. Uh, get a catch phrase wouldja..?

    I only recently picked up your podcast and I’m having a blast listening back through the archives. My favorite thing so far is Eli’s movie review from episode 93 (Saving Christmas) which is arguably the funniest thing in the universe. My favorite lines have to be the impression of the professor going insane during a lecture. Laughed for days – still laughing.

    Everything else is amazing too, so far – Lucinda’s Bible stories for kids, the poems (special mention to the “gritty reboot” of Song of Solomon – all three working together to recite it made it even better), the top 10s. Everything.

    Thanks for making a consistently amazing podcast!

  57. May 22, 2015 at 8:31 PM

    Well, I’ve done it. I’ve finally gotten around to becoming a Patreon, for you guys and any other podcasts I thought of at the time. I am now patronising (but only because you’re such a good little podcast, and you try sooo hard).
    Love the show and love you guys. I have listened to some episodes ten plus times and can recite Eli’s pitch to become Pope verbatim. I want to make a t-shirt that says “You have the right idea if you rape a deaf kid…” with a picture of Papal Eli underneath, but I fear it will be misinterpreted.

  65. August 18, 2015 at 6:22 PM

    Honestly, I can’t wait to listen to the “Saving Christmas” ep. That sounds like it’ll be gold.

    Forgive me if this turns into a long ramble. First, I am a big fan and enjoy your podcasts. I often hear people talk about where atheists get their “morals”, if it is not from God. I think even converted Christians sometimes ponder this point. Where do your morals come from? For me, I was never a “believer”. For the first 7 or 8 years of my life, my parents taught me my morals, without religion. My mother read fairy tales to me, which often had a “moral” to the story. My parents taught me to be a good person. They taught me not to lie. It was only when I was 7 or 8 years old that my mother sent me to a church service and bible study under pressure from the neighbors who claimed that “the boy needs religion”. It was only in the bible study class, when exposed to other children of various ages, that I was instructed on how to lie to your parents and teachers. Before such exposure at the church, I was unaware that lying was even an option. I also became aware that the people I knew at this church acted completely differently at Sunday services than they did the rest of the week. So, the church, or at least the church-goers introduced me to both lying and hypocrisy. After only a few visits, I pleaded with my mother not to make me go back because those people scared the living crap out of me. She complied and I never went back. So… my parents (who were very strict) taught me to be a good and moral person without ever invoking God or religion. Attending church only taught me how to blur the line. So, if you wonder where your morals comes from… there are much better options than the wrath of God.

      September 21, 2015 at 12:28 AM

      By the way, I am now 54 years old. I think I have lived my life with some sense of morality and, indeed, great compassion for my fellow man. Yet, I have never had to turn to a 2000 year old magical Jewish carpenter in the sky to guide my morality or compassion.

    Noah, regarding your diatribe on episode 144, It’s exactly how I feel but you say it better than I could ever say it. I’d love to make a Youtube video about it, with your permission of course. Would you mind at all?
