Next time we’ll be talking about the state of secularism with Cliff Erasmus, Executive Chair of the Centre for Inquiry Alberta.
With the recent launch of the “There’s Probably No God” bus ads in Calgary, atheism has hit Alberta’s mainstream media.
But why is it so important to talk about it now? What’s going on in the province that’s bringing the atheists, humanists and other secularly-focused folks out of the woodwork?
Could it be the teaching of creationism in our small-town public schools? Or the fact that megachurches from Texas have recently moved in? Or is it a product of a more general cultural shift?
Find out what Albertans are up to on the all new next Skeptically Speaking (formerly known as Q Transmissions), every Friday at 6pm on CJSR.
Note: Yes friends, we have a new name, a new format and a new website going LIVE this week! Keep checking this blog for details.

And at the end of the show, a very special surprise.
Remember – Friday, 6 p.m. MST, live on FM 88.5 (that’s CJSR to you, punk!) or online at www.cjsr.com.
Thank you to Paul Welke for being our guest. And for not saying the F-word on air.
Here are some resources:
cityWIDE FM, a brand new radio station in Madison, Wisconsin, hosts a show called “Science for Skeptics”. Every Friday they rebroadcast interesting skeptical and science programming, and they’ll be airing Q Transmissions on a semi-regular basis. You can’t listen to their programming online yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
Any listeners from Madison that happen to be reading this, welcome!
That brings us to three additional stations carrying the show. Please see the Links page for a list of affiliates.
Thanks so much for all the support!
