News and an update on ep. 1.04

Due to annoying social constraints and a nasty case of brain fry I didn’t have a show up last week (nor has this weeks “Amazing!” post made it up yet…It will tonight). Life sucks and we move forward, right?

This weeks episode, which will exist, I’m going to be talking about a few things that have popped up in the news recently that have splintered themselves firmly into my mind.

Firstly the issue of religious morals vs. workplace ethics. There’s a contingent in California whom seem to think their religious views are on trial because they’re being ‘forced’ to do things against what they hold spiritually sacred. Most of them are doctors whom work in family planning¬† type clinics…so you can see where that ones headed.

Secondly the general state of politics in America. I made a blog post a while back condemning the DNC for ignoring the godless vote and I have a little more to say on the issue. Sarah Palin has been named the GOP veep nominee so I’ll be giving my two-cents worth on that, what it means for the McCaininites and the country overall, among other things.

I’ve got a few shorter bits as well but those will likely be the meat and potatoes.

Blog and podcast update

I’ve moved my personal blogging over to my Atheist Nexus page, found here:

http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/Hessenroots

Feel free to say hi, harass me…whatever. It’s a social site so be social!

FEEBLE UPDATE,¬† July 29th: I’m pretty sure I have everything covered from a techncial standpoint. Graphics are up, audio software in place and thoroughly played with, content ideas nailed…I’m excited to get rolling. Aside from my custom CSS and graphics layout (which likely won’t see the light of day for some time) things are good to go.

It’s a one man operation and I really, really want to avoid just having it just be me on the mic talking about issues.That’s not to say I won’t have rants and opinion pieces regularly. I’m comfortable laying out my personal views and including the views of others but I’m also going to be doing ‘field work’ on relevant topics, armed with a notepad, my digital voice recorder and a camera (I’ve likened it to a poor-mans “this american life” with a focus on atheist/freethought content and viewpoints). Mostly I want to make something good, somewhat original and have it be worth peoples time to download and respond to. Some ideas will work, some won’t…it’s new ground for me.

I’m targeting the Republican National Convention as my first foray with the hopes of talking to people from both sides of the fence. There’s going to be more then enough supporters and protesters, I just need to find the ones willing to sit down and talk for a few minutes.

I won’t be doing video for the foreseeable future. I like the portability and accessibility of audio and, frankly, I don’t have the finances for the hardware and software that I would want to use for video (I can’t imagine people would want to watch me talking when they could just listen anyway). If things go well I would like to produce video of my various field trips as well as the podcast…time will tell.

That said, I’m leaving town on the 30th for a five day hiking and fishing trip. If I have time tonight I will get my first ‘cast’ online. If not it will be early next week (Aug. 4th-5th).

Please feel free to contact me on Atheist Nexus or email me: contact@thefeeblelance.net if you have anything you want to say.
