Ep. 32 – Wonder Women

Episode 32 looks at yet more examples of women doing the heavy lifting of equal rights, while the men-folk look the other way. We look at a teenage girl who had her mic cut-off mid-testimony, for the temerity of explaining how God made her. We check in to Alberta where Laurie Skori is taking a Christian school to task over their take on morality. Dale updates on his visit to ‘Imagine No Religion 7’. Recorded June 25, 2017 at the Brockville Public Library.

Ep. 31 – The Legend of Silly Billy and the Asparagus Man

The team tackles the master of No-Spin, learns of Earth’s latest super-hero the Asparagus Man, and touches base with real, live Canadian polygamists, and gets the skinny from Mark on that brave new frontier Cyber Church. We live in the future, thanks be to God! Recorded at the home of Judith and Mark in Brockville on April 30, 2017.

Ep. 30 – Crikey!!!

It has been a LONG time coming, but the Rationalists are back at it with episode 30. The biggest and bestest atheist podcast in the greater Brockville and 1000 Islands region goes after all kinds of shenanigans. From child abuse in Australia, to homo-erotic outrage over beloved fairy tales, to theist confusion over what the word ‘progressive’ means, our friends on the other side of the aisle never leave us short of news . Thank goodness the Pope has our backs! Recorded in Brockville, ON at the home of Judith and Mark on Mar 19, 2017.

Ep. 29 – Won’t Somebody PLEASE Think of the Children?

#29 is feeling fine, what with all the talk of cloud angels, atheist ministers and schools in Alberta that are fine with rules as long as they don’t have to play by them. Dale takes a look at some of the problems with indoctrinating children into a faith they never asked for, we Ask Another Atheist, and ponder a Little Question about just how much of a dupe that Pontius Pilate guy must have been. Recorded Sept 18, 2016 in Brockville, ON.

What could go wrong with putting a bunch of old men in charge of your religion?

We also take a moment to reflect on the passing of one of our founders – Michael McNeely. Recorded July 23, 2016 at Brockville, ON.

News and Little Questions in this shortened episode – why and how did Mary expect Jesus to take care of the bar at a local wedding, and what the heck are the rumoured Light Sessions that took place at the now defunct Grenville Christian College?
