Session 5.5: Damned Mingling!

NonsenseDebrisLogoFinalThis session, Eddie lets you know that it’s almost like this whole podcast thing is going to be a regular thing. He reads an old review of his of the Chuck Palahniuk book “Damned” to fulfill his “being a dick about religious ideas” quota, opines on the Christian Mingle case and the idea of public accommodation, and finally fills in listeners on what to look forward to on Session 6, which supposedly will come out this weekend!

Episode 4.5: Correction and Listener Feedback

This session, Eddie tries to record without melting in the heat, apologizes to an entire state for being unwarrantedly snarky, then moves on to some further thoughts on the whole “shooty-bang-bang” thing that people are arguing over lately.

A few links about the statistics Eddie talked about:

These are just a sampling, taken at almost-random. The numbers are pretty clear, though.

On a side note, we really wanted to find a good philosophical defense of the second amendment, particularly since that was the point Eddie hit on: That the pro-gun side has a better position of conceptual principle. But, in keeping with the fact that all politics is garbage, there wasn’t a really good link. But Eddie’s confident they exist, if too lazy to spend hours looking for them. So, listeners (either of you), if you’ve got a good one, be sure to post it here in the comments or on the facebook page, and you may win a no-prize of your very own.

Episode 4: Nous Sommes Orlando

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world. — Fred Rogers (That’s Mr. Rogers, to you. And me. And everyone.)

This Session, on a serious note, our hearts ache for the Orlando victims. After the crippling sad part, Eddie and Alex talk about the Masked Magician, the magician’s code, Zeitgeist, Orson Welles, Doctor Buckaroo Banzai, the devilish Lucent conspiracy, and Zeitgeist.

Episode 4.5 and 5 will be up soon. And by “soon”, we mean: “Sometime before the second coming.” Though it’s only fair to note that that’s not ever happening, so….

Episode 3.5: Fuck Woody Allen

This episode, Eddie jumps in after a long hiatus to give a rantitribe about how much of a douchebag Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, and Orson Scott Card are, and why people should stop giving them money. Also, the audio might be somewhat better, maybe?

Tune in at some other point, in the future, less than an infinite time from no, for next week!

In the meantime, hit the show up in the comments here, or write to Doctor MoonSmash at AskDocSmash@NonsenseDebris.com, or call Eddie out on Twitter @DoctorMoonsmash. Also check out www.eddie-west.com. He might actually put something up there at some point!

As promised in the episode itself, here’s a metric shitton of links about all the things in this episode:

Episode 3: Almost Half-Assed!

This week, Eddie bravely goes it alone after discovering that the hours he’d recorded with a guest were unusable! Don’t worry, though, he manages to make sure the audio on this episode is almost as bad. It’s a short one folks, but dangit it’s up! Topics are the Cabazon Dinosaurs, Ralph Fiennes, and Creationist Nonsense.

We promise improvements to the audio! (If we promise it enough it happens, right?)

Episode 2.5: Buzz Cuts and Burial Vaults

In this mini-session, Eddie has a rant about haircuts and cakes. But then he’s got a cool story about Tutankhamun! Plus, the audio should be at least mostly listenable, but you guys be the judge. Feel free to yell through any or all of the venues! As always, find Nonsense Debris on facebook, or you can find Nonsense Debris on Twitter. You can email anything you’d like submitted to our philosophically-minded advice segment, “Ask Doctor Moonsmash”.

Episode 2: Hell Is Other Planets

This week, Eddie sits down with John Berger, host of The Radical Agnostic and author of The Crisis of the Genuine, and Alex X, international man of mystery, to discuss their path through religion to…whatever it is they are now.

As promised, here in the show notes is the link to the Venera 13 color photos of the Venusian surface!

And since Eddie couldn’t remember during the show, the show notes are where he can relay who that Roman Emperor was: Vespasian!

Episode 1.5: DB Leaves, and Ask Doctor MoonSmash!

In this mini-session, Eddie gives DB a hard time for leaving the show, talks about how untrustworthy atheists are, and answers questions as Doctor MoonSmash.

1.0: Bad Audio and ALF Jesus

In this first real session, DB and Eddie talk about religion, Scalia, Jeb! and the series finale of ALF. They also talk a little bit about their respective writing careers, or lack thereof. The audio is a little rough, but hey, it’s a first episode! Next week the boys’ll have a list of topics and, hopefully, cleaner sound. They say cardboard is a great insulator…
