So, our short break away from the airwaves in Seattle/Tacoma is coming to an end, and a lot of the work we’ve been doing behind the scenes is starting to show! For example, the new name of the show is starting to show up in places. For another, thanks to our successful 2014 Streamathon, our studio is in better shape than it’s been since we moved into it in March. And today I’m announcing the newest, but far from the last change.
Regular listeners of the show might be familiar with my usual patter between segments– “This is Ask an Atheist! Give us a call at…” with a phone number that was first at the KLAY studio, and then a Seattle-local number for a good chunk of 2014. Well, this week, our first week back in Seattle, that changes. And before anyone says anything, yes, we’re a lot less call focused than we once were. The show has evolved in a lot of ways since the first days on the radio, and even more since the days we were on the television. But, as our show starts showing up on more and more stations, we’re expecting that to change somewhat. To help facilitate that change, we’ve decided to invest in a new toll free number so anyone around the country can give us a call and not worry entirely too much about the fact that you’re calling Tacoma.
And hey, why not take the opporunity to get an interesting number that spells something? Sure, we tried for EAT-BABY like I used to joke, but that’s probably not where we want to go. Also, it was already taken. So, instead, we got something we think is a little cooler. Next time you want to call Ask an Atheist, just pick up your phone and dial:
Or for those of you, like me, who are bad at spelling, it’s (844) 753-7842. If you want to talk to us, whether we’re on the air or not, give us a call. Voice mails are always fun.
