1.3 – Matt Dillahunty

A pleasant Sunday Afternoon fireside chat with scotch and cigars, in the middle of the Australian summer. OK, we didn’t have a fire, that would be silly in this heat. Nor did we have scotch and cigars, but we did sit around the Godless Business HQ Lounge for a chat with legendary atheist podcaster Matt Dillahunty.

    Matt Dillahunty is awesome, and so is this podcast! I can't believe something this wonderful comes out of the city I live in. I've been an atheist for about a year now, since Richard Dawkins finally got me, maybe one day I'll get in on this podcast malarky too. I look forward to more of your podcasts, the production is amazing!

      Thanks, we are trying our best :)

      We thought Australia needed something like this, so we went ahead and started one. We have a number of guests lined up for the show on top of our regular stuff. For example, Father Bob Maguire has already said yes to appear, which is great – he's a hoot!

      Glad to hear you are a also fellow Taswegian. Might have a chat to you sometime.

        I actually came across you on meet up while looking for atheist orgs in Hobart a couple of months ago but was too shy to make contact. I could go to an established group but the idea of meeting up with one person made me very shy, funny that. I'm really craving for a group I could go to to talk with people about philosophical issues, and have been since I finished uni. It's not the kind of psychological need that is easy to meet outside of the academic world, as I am sure you have experienced also. I came to atheism from a very different background to most people, or so I believe, so I think when I do have the opportunity to speak with other atheists it should be pretty interesting.

          I'm just about to finish listening to all the episodes, when is the next one due?

            Oh FSM, I only finished work on episode 3 at midnight last night LOL. Will record again in a fortnight. I might release some unused material from 1.2 yet, which could happen later this week or early next.

            Glad you like the show :)

            Actually, my diary has an episode scheduled for this weekend, but that's a hang over from before we had Matt lined up.

            The 7th March will be the next recording, then probably a few short shows from the Atheist Conference in Melbourne. After that – who knows?

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/GodlessNige GodlessNige

            Yeah well 1.2 was a half week early in its recording (and a few days early released) then 1.3 only a week later (from when 1.2 SHOULD have been released had it not been early)

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1735511620 Jessamine Gibb

            Didn't mean to hassle you, just excited :-)

            And yeah, it is great to hear an Australian accent and perspective on atheist issues. Considering you're only just starting and the quality of the presenters and audio is already so good I cannot imagine how amazing this podcast will be in the future!

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/askegg askegg

            I am ready to do another one today. Since Matt was on we did not get to discuss many things I had prepared.

            Luckily one member of the podcast has access to proper audio equipment and another is a professional sound editor. Plus I only wanted to do it if the quality was great. I think we are settling in nicely and having fun with it. Once we find our feet and know where each other is coming from (we don't all know each other really well), then I expect the podcast will be truly awesome.

            What are you up to tonight then

    "Atheiguest *groan* :)" hehe yeah i know… lol

    Fantastic interview. It was great to hear Matt being the guest for once, allowed to talk about himself, and what a sharp guy he is!

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/askegg askegg

      Thanks. I really wanted to learn about Matt rather than what he believes, or his approach. I think those things are already well known.

      • http://intensedebate.com/profiles/dreadpiratemick dreadpiratemick

        Well, you did a great job. I'm looking forward to hearing more of this approach.

    Ha. You said Stephen "Bradley", not Bradbury. Do I win a no-prize?
