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

@TNT666

That's why I have a hand-me-down Christmas tree!  We'll probably get a little baby live one, and then plant it next season.

Comment by Paula T. on December 15, 2010 at 4:25pm

I like the tree topper!  A bit pricey for me, but still cool!  And I use an artificial tree that will last for many years :)

Comment by TNT666 on December 15, 2010 at 4:03pm

Hey... an even better topper for atheists is to not kill a tree to create a mere holiday decoration!

I wonder what a Vampyre would look like in one of those airport body scanners?
Comment by linda wagner on December 2, 2010 at 6:12pm
Reading, personal experience, friends that are real vampires. I'm just kidding, this is not a serious subject. Since they don't really exist you can say anything you want. Any body can be an expert.
Comment by david perry on December 2, 2010 at 5:51pm
Nothing godlike at all, but the pictures in this article are just amazing.
Comment by Joseph P on December 2, 2010 at 4:17pm
How do you become an expert on the subject? O.o
Comment by linda wagner on December 2, 2010 at 4:14pm
No vampire can not feed on zombies. Trust me I'm an expert on this. Their blood is dead.
