Okay, for reals this time.
On the next show we’re going to discuss atheists in foxholes. You know what they say, that there’s no such thing.
Well Paul Welke says hogwash.
Welke is a retired Canadian Forces Master Corporal and an atheist. He’ll be joining us this week to talk about how atheists are treated in the Canadian military and what godless heathens think about when they’re scared.
Q Transmissions, 6 p.m. MST on CJSR – online or FM 88.5
Unfortunately, the Helen Fisher show has been postponed until April 17th.
Watch this space to find out what we’re going to talk about this week.
You’ve seen her TED, you’ve seen her on CNN, you’ve seen her on Penn & Teller’s Bullshit. Well now, Helen Fisher is on Q Transmissions!
Fisher is a biological anthropologist, Research Professor and member of the Center for Human Evolution Studies in the Department of Anthropology, Rutgers University and Chief Scientific Advisor to the Internet dating site, Chemistry.com. Her newest book, Why Him? Why Her? Finding Real Love by Understanding Your Personality Type explores the role of temperament and how it can determine why we love who we love.
So join us at 6 o’clock Friday at www.cjsr.com and/or 88.5 FM in Edmonton.
Oh, and Dr. Fisher will be on the phone with us live, so be sure to call in! 780-492-2577, ext. 1.
P.S. – a quiz!
This week we’ll be speaking to local skeptics Chris Wisely and Sean Ouimet about how science and skepticism is affected by, and is portrayed in, the media.
Sorry, all. Due to the unfortunate intrusiveness of life, this will be a pre-taped episode and we won’t be taking calls. We do, however, encourage you to post your questions and comments after the post-show links are up. This is an important topic that we won’t do justice in an hour, and we’re relying on you to fill in the blanks. We’ll be online and waiting patiently for your insightful and scintillating discussion.
Talk to you Friday. 🙂
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.
Thanks to Magister Robert A. Lang for being our guest.
Here are some of the links we used for this week’s show. Enjoy.
Are Satanists really all that bad? Do they just get a bad rap or do they really eat babies?
Join us Friday when we’ll be speaking with Robert Lang, Canadian spokesperson for the Church of Satan*.
Listen live at 88.5 FM (CJSR, of course!) or online at cjsr.com.
*BYOB (bring your own babies)
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. 🙂
