As you may have heard on our most recent episode, we’ve seen the writing on the wall for SCAN public access, the network that broadcasts our show – and it’s not good.
Barring some sort of deus ex machina, SCAN will go black on January 1, 2011. When this happens, obviously, “Ask an Atheist” will no longer be broadcast on Seattle public access television.
Despite a rather herculean effort by SCAN staff, show producers and viewers to secure funding for the network, the Seattle city council has decided to defund Seattle public access to death.
Where does this leave “Ask an Atheist”?
Repeat after me: we’re not canceled.
The producers of our show are dedicated to keeping our award-winning little heathen show alive and well, in another form. They make strike us down, but they’ll only make us more powerful than they can possibly imagine.
We’re exploring a number of really exciting options right now. We can’t talk about anything until it solidifies, but expect some big announcements in the near future.
In the meantime, we will continue to produce new episodes of the show as long as SCAN keeps the lights on. We have scheduled more topics and episodes through the end of the year and a lot of ideas for shows after that.
We’re not dead, folks. Far from it. Stay tuned for big news.
