"GMO's and Social Media", Anastasia Bodnar on Atheists Talk #299, January 25, 2015

Genetic Modification is a technology that frightens a great many people because it is tampering with the DNA of our foods. While the process and technology of GMO is relatively new to human engineering, we have been modifying our foods through the process of crossbreeding for millenia to make it tastier and more nutritious and to improve its resistance to disease and drought. Genetic engineering holds the promise to speed up the process of engineering food for the results we desire because technology is able to more accurately target the desired genes.

There is a tendency, however, to associate the process and research with Big Food and specifically unpopular agricultural corporations such as Monsanto. In the world of social media, discussion of the topic is often very heated, perhaps as much as the topics of creationism, global climate change denialism or even misogyny and race. Anastasia Bodnar, PhD, is a genetic scientist who has studied the issue of genetic engineering and has been very active in promoting education through the internet regarding the topic. She has encountered the rancorous discussion on many occasions and will be our guest to talk with Mike Haubrich about the science as well as the social aspects.

"Atheist Debates", Matt Dillahunty on Atheists Talk #298, January 18, 2015

Debate plays a large role in the modern, U.S. atheist movement. Though atheism is becoming normalized, it is only recently that we sometimes get to speak unchallenged. Even now, it’s almost impossible to find us in the news without a religious representative present to oppose us. Many believers, particularly in the more religious parts of the nation, will never hear about atheism from an atheist outside the context of a debate. When we make our views known online, believers pop up looking to argue.

Matt Dillahunty has set out on a project to make atheists, or at least those of us who want to argue, better debaters. One of the most prominent atheist debaters in the U.S., he’s started a series of videos to talk about what makes a debate successful and to improve our responses to common theist arguments.

He joins us this Sunday to talk about his project and give us a little advice on tuning up our atheist arguments.

"Atheist Christmas" Keith Lowell Jensen on Atheists Talk #296, January 4th 2014

Keith Lowell Jensen has been around the block. Well a lot of blocks - as a stand-up comedian Keith Lowell Jensen has been all over the country spreading his unique brand of sarcasm, tolerance, cynicism and hope. And a whole lot of masturbation stories. In over ten years as a performer and writer, Keith Lowell Jensen has been thrilling audiences with stories of his family, his atheism, and all the fun things that life has thrown at him over the years. 

Keith Lowell Jensen has opened for comedians Norm MacDonald, Robin Williams, Doug Stanhope, and Will Durst. He is known among atheist groups not only for his pokes at religion and his frank discussions about atheism, but for his appearances at conferences such as the annual Skepticon in Missouri. His recently released DVD, Atheist Christmas, is currently being shown by Hulu and Amazon. Mr. Jensen is a member of the Stand-Up! Records family, a group that has released albums for such comedians as Louis Black, Doug Stanhope, David Cross, Patton Oswalt and Jamie Kilstein.

We hope you can join us this Sunday for our talk with Keith Lowell Jensen.
