We did it again! Just a few weeks after releasing episode 10, we managed to get number 11 up before the holiday season ended.
This podcast was a little time-sensitive, in that we took it upon ourselves to dissect previous Christmas editorials featured in the local newspaper – the Brockville Recorder (it was the Recorder and Times when I delivered it as a kid, but those were simpler times). So, we took the Recorder’s faithful editor to task for some of his more problematic assertions from 2012 and 2013, while we await his offering for this Christmas.
We have news and Little Questions, too. We hope you enjoy, and we look forward to getting Joe back in the new year, as well as possibly expanding our team. As always, we would *LOVE* to have more theists check in with us, but we understand this is a busy time of year, what with the war on Christmas and all.
Peace and Love, playas!
Dale and I were a two-man show for podcast number 10, but that didn’t scare us. We looked at some recent news from our friends at the Vatican, including how very close they came to joining us in the modern age. We looked at some more of Dale’s ‘Little Questions’, and we took some time to try to understand if the Bible says that the sins of the father can be visited upon his descendants. The answer? Yes, no, probably, probably not, or maybe, depending on who you ask.
It’s up at iTunes and Stitcher now, and (of course) our Podcast and Media page. Enjoy!
After a slight delay, Podcast 9, recorded Oct 4, is up. Download it here, on iTunes, or via Stitcher.
We’re always on the lookout for local folks looking to jump in to the podcast, both from the atheist/agnostic point of view and especially from the theistic side. We were lucky to have our friend Stephane join our most recent podcast. Stephane specializes in ongoing conversations with some of the more fundamentally-inclined theists on his Facebook feed, and we’re looking forward to hearing his most cherished stories.
Episode 10 is already recorded, and it’ll be up in about a week, so lots of stuff coming. If you’d like to take part in our discussion – especially if you disagree with us – please reach out.
See what I did there?
Anyway, Ep 8 is up and running, hitting iTunes and Stitcher any moment, and readily available on the Podcast and Media page.
We had a great time going over some news, discussing Avalos’ essay on God’s moral standing, and looking at the logistics of the Exodus. Some of the numbers don’t seem to work, but we might have forgot to carry the 1. Dale also introduced a new segment called “Little Questions”, which I think is going to be fun.
We’re welcoming a new voice to our next podcast, set to record Oct 4. Tune in to find out who!
Podcast 8 looked at the numbers behind the Exodus, some recent news (including the ongoing Trinity Anglican stuff), and introduced a new segment called “Little Questions”. We also took a look at Hector Avalos’ “God is a moral monster” argument. All in good fun!
The episode is with Mike for his insertions and the extra magic he does to make it all work.
Episode 7 of the River City Rationalists podcast is up and available on iTunes, Stitcher and our Podcast and Media page. We had a great time digging into some recent news, including the ongoing saga of Brockville’s Trinity Anglican Church, events in the Sudan, and Sex Ed in Alberta. We did a forensic analysis of our interview with Rev. John Wilderspin, and we looked at the 10-or-so commandments. For your listening pleasure, Mike offers some pleasant, family-friendly passages from the Quran, just to prove we’ve got our skeptical eyes on *all* religious claims.
Episode 6 is up on our Podcast and Media page, and should hit iTunes and Stitcher shortly. We had a great time discussing recent news, some counter-apologetics, and we even took a run at Judas. Turns out, he might have been a pretty swell guy.
Welcome to the home of the River City Rationalists Podcast. Please check out the Podcasts and Media page to get the latest episode, or download us from iTunes or Stitcher.
Our latest episode is online, wherein we talk about some very disturbing recent news, take a moment to reflect on our recent visit to church, and then go into some depth on the resurrection narratives.
You can download it lots of ways:
That’s right – we’ve gone and connected our humble podcast to Stitcher, so getting the feed should be simple regardless of your preferred delivery method, players!
Our recent interview with Baptist pastor Rev. John Wilderspin is now available at iTunes or on the Podcast and Media page. I think it’s a great show. John gave us his story, spoke to his faith, answered our questions, and engaged in courteous debate.
Looking forward to more local theists following John’s lead. We’d also welcome any local atheists who want to share their journey with us.
