Is the Pope infallible? Which religion is ready for us to colonize other planets and which of them are prepared for the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligent life (because there’s bugger all down here)? If aliens exist, would religious extremists try to convert them? How dangerous could artificial intelligence become, and has somebody already replaced the politicians with AI’s? Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore threatens to defy the federal courts and deny gay couples the right to marry. What’s the best way to get your news, and just how awesome is the “fan mail” that Richard Dawkins receives.
The first Sunday night episode of Nothing Serious has the guys taking aim at Pope Francis as he shoot a poor one out of three this week. From Catholics breeding like rabbits & contraception, to ideological colonization and freedom of speech – poor Pope Frankie struggles this week with only one saving grace.
A Mississippi teacher figures out how to demonstrate the proper use of condoms, without mentioning or showing the “oh so offensive” item or phallic representations, and a Tennessee mother discovers that Satan is in the school bus and coming for your kids!
The greatest argument every may be two bodybuilders trying to figure out how many days there are in a week, and the humble crisp butty sambo becomes a niche culinary delight.
Steven and Paul get stuck into the great American horror story of willful ignorance on episode 82 of Nothing Serious. Pope Francis stirs the pot stating the evolution is not inconsistent with creation, but could this be a ploy rather than an acceptance of science. Fox News, not content with trotting out Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman to declare that the Polar Bears are happy and global warming is a myth, lets Dr. Keith Ablow declare the need for an “American Jihad”.
Things get kinky, dirty and downright gross this week as Steven gets excited about raising money for charity by watching porn, the pope eats his own buggers, Avengers themed dildos, medical madness and idiotic thieves. Our hero of the week is a Russian guy who teaches the credit card companies a lesson, Daniel finally gets his introduction to Urban Dictionary, and our anonymous bad joke of the week returns.
From genius strip club marketing to technological idiocy, we run the gamut from self-incriminating porn viewers to Russia trying to ban swearing on the internet. While the Pope acknowledges gay priests and overweight people get chucked out of New Zealand, we launch into a serious PSA and attempt to educate you about how to catch your cheating male significant other.
Cardinals have “bunga bunga” parties in the Vatican, Darth Vader runs Death Valley, levelling 5000-year-old Peruvian pyramids, the State Department spends $630,000 failing to engage on Facebook, Bebo goes cheap(er) and the Viralheat Blogathon.
Paul, Daniel and Steven are joined by Mykel Alvis on the latest episode of Nothing Serious Podcast for a quick fire jaunt through class divides, free speech, atheism, PETA, fallible popes, Facebook restricting speech, the entertainment industry wanting to infect and monitor your computer, the law breaking the law, patent trolls attacking podcasters and much, much more…
