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.
Or follow us on twitter at SkepticalRadio!
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!
You know that time where I said that shows would be ready for you to download by noon every Saturday?
Let’s just consider this a lesson in being skeptical of the media.
Shows will be hereby be posted Saturdays “at some point”, until I figure out a schedule that works for me.
Thanks all, I appreciate your patience.
A summary of the posts relating to this episode:
Update: The problem causing our blog’s layout to look funny all day has been fixed (sorry about that.) Thanks very much to our wishes-to-remain-anonymous helper for the fix.
As you may have noticed from the photos in the preceding posts, the talented (and skeptical!) Marc-Julien Objois has kindly consented to be the official Q Transmissions photographer.
You’ll see his work grace the pages of our fair blog on a semi-regular basis; primarily when our interviews are in-studio.
Feel free to repost the pictures, but please credit the photographer when you do.
Thanks so much to Marc for wanting to be a part of the show… and for making us look good. 🙂
Starting this week, new shows will now be made available as part of our RSS feeds (and the shows page) through a quick post letting you know the episode has made it online. We expect to have each episode up by noon on Saturdays, making it the perfect compliment to a late brunch.
If you haven’t already, you can listen to Friday’s episode on Evolution with Greg Laden here.
