Quiche Moraine Shuts Down the Radio
As you may know, most of the Quiche Moraine crew has been involved with the Minnesota Atheists’ Atheists Talk radio show. Mike hosted the show until he took over as director earlier this year. At that point, Stephanie became the regular show host. Greg has been a guest multiple times, and all three have interviewed guests for the show.
So it’s fitting that the three of us will be on the air together for the last live radio show, Sunday, June 28.
Missionaries tell us that they are saving the world, traveling to foreign lands to help the natives. Of course, “saving the world” means something a little different to those of us who don’t believe there’s a Satan who needs to be battled at every turn. We usually mean saving lives and bettering standards of living, actions that have meaning in the here and now. How do missionaries do in that regard?
Biological anthropologist Greg Laden joins Stephanie Zvan to talk about his experiences with missionaries in the remotest parts of Africa and answer questions about what missions really offer the indigenous populations. He’ll tell us about the good and the bad and let us know where we need to step up to provide secular help uncomplicated by the religion of the missionaries.
This will be the final live Atheists Talk on the radio and the last podcast for a while, until we get the details of the ongoing podcast worked out. If you’re not attending the Pride Parade with the Minnesota Atheists delegation, please consider joining us at Q.Cumbers after the show to celebrate our long and successful radio run.
All three of us will be at Q.Cumbers for the post-show brunch. Mmm, bacon.
We hope to continue Atheists Talk soon in a podcast-only format. We’ll keep you up to date. In the meantime, you can stream our last show and call or email us to participate. Details are here. (Note, you’ll need a Minnesota zip code to stream the show. If you don’t have your own, use 55404.)
We hope to hear from you.
