:smt026 :smt026 :smt041 :smt041 :smt040

Rook and I are so ecstatic right now, we can't even contain our happiness! Great news! Richard Carrier has to make a trip to Manhatten in early August, and when it came up he thought of us. Last night he asked us if we would have him in our studio to record a show or two. Of course we were floored and instantly accepted, all that's left is the logistics. What Richard doesn't know yet is we'll probably have him do 4 or 5 shows with us! Sticking out tongue All in studio means, great sound quality! At the same time we also got back an email from Sam Harris with details on his upcoming appearance and a final confirmation. He'll be coming on after his new book is released in September.

Whata day! It's lovely outside, two extremely notable guests just booked appearances! And we owe all our thanks to nothing!! Praise nothing! Laughing out loud

Any die hard supporters out there, please consider purchasing a show package, as we have to pay for Richard Carriers' transportation.

I didn't know about Richard Carrier until reading this post, but I've been reading his debate versus that theist guy since you posted the link to Carrier's page. I can't wait to hear the man live. And Sam Harris is a major bonus. Score.

Praise Joe Peschi.

He knows now, and he's all ready for the RRS 14 hour recording session! Woo hoo!

Again, any die hard supporters out there, please consider purchasing a show package, as we have to pay for Richard Carriers' transportation. You will be receiving the Carrier shows in this grouping.

I actually had to Google that name. I have no idea who you are, or actually who you WERE, but I know now. An impressive "crusade"...

Hee hee. Richard knows me by my real name, but I don't know if he associates my screen name with my real name, which is why I mentioned it.

Internet Infidels is working with Carrier on the release of more copies of his debate with Mike Licona. You can read a review here:

Janice and I go wayyy back on the local level. I'm working with her behind the scenes right now to integrate into a show smoothly when Richard comes in. I'll post a picture of Janice and I later today.

I think this was taken in late summer or early fall, 2002. Close to 4 years ago.

omg I derailed the Richard Carrier thread! Let's talk about Richard Carrier!

You can come to my site, the Secular Web, to read some of Carrier's works:

What happens with those of us that already ordered up to show # 25? Does this include these shows, or only some of them? Or are there going to be other shows that count as up to # 25, and then these will be separate?

You'll get Carrier on shows 23, 24, and 25. We'll probably offer a fill in deal with the remaining Carrier shows for the people who bought 16-25.

Richard is spending the whole weekend at my house, to record with us all day long. Sam is coming on as well, but only for one episode (as it stands).

It depends how much time he'll give us. We've got at least an hour of questions lined up. Do you have a particular area of interest regarding Sam? I'm thinking it shouldn't be a problem, just don't want to commit without more details. I know we've already got a packed show lined up for him.

It all depends if Sam wants to delve into Philosophy. If not, than I would probably be of little use. It's your show man, its totally up to you. You seem to like having me on the show...so I thought I would offer Smiling

His first show with us airs tonight (Show 23). And as a subscriber,you can get up to show 27 in the subscription page. I am adding show 27 as we speak, should be up within 20 minutes.
