Ask an Atheist with Sam Mulvey

Day 1: Tacoma to Eugene


Tonight, I talk about the drive from Tacoma to Eugene.   Also, since I’m tired and need to wind down, I talk about Dune, prayer, Baseball, driving, and conspiracy theory radio.   Not in that order.

Here’s the video that Annique from the Netherlands was talking about in her email.

As it happens, the game with the Vancouver Canadians (one of the few border-crossing teams remaining) at the Hillsboro Hops (a team named after a beer ingredient) looks like it ended up being pretty interesting.    More interestingly, the game previous to the one I heard went 19 innings.   Yikes.

The audio stinks.  Sorry.

I didn’t mention it in the podcast, but I saw 5 religious billboards today.   I’m thinking about keeping a daily count.

Perhaps I need more Ritalin in my daily cocktails but I didn’t realize you were going to be doing quick audio blogs like this on your trip. Great thing to run across.

The musical ganre is known as Power Metal in which the lyrics, more often than not, are fantasy and sci-fi themed.
And excellent band named Blind Guardian, for example, has a concept album titled: Nightfall in Middle-Earth.
