June 24,2016 Episode 48
Hi and welcome to the brainstorm podcast. This is episode 48 and today is June 24th, 2016. I’m Cory and my panel tonight are Destin, Rene, Angela, and Leo, with the always amazing Dave doing sound and we’re here in Roman Empire studios in Regina, Saskatchewan. Tonight’s show is brought to you by Reasonist Ink, atheist, skeptic, and science based apparel. You can find them at ReasonistInk.com. Tonight’s guest is David Smalley; atheist author, speaker, and podcaster extraordinaire. His radio show Dogma Debate is one of the most popular and professional shows in the atheist podcasting community where he regularly hosts religious apologists, to discuss the problems with their beliefs, as well as just about every voice in the atheist movement.

The day after we chatted with David, he wrote a blog about gun control that was relevant to our discussion
The Music Break
The music break this week was The Wretched by Nine Inch Nails and Well, Everybody's Fucking in the UFO by Rob Zombie. In the interest of a more streamlined show and less issues with the youtube feed. Music will only be available in the full show available for Patrons and during the live broadcast. We may go back to the old way of doing things in the future but for now this seems like the best way.
In part two we kind of went free form and didn't stick to any one topic too much. First off we tried to have a bit of a chat about the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando by Omar Mateen.
Here's some info on the CDC being unable to study gun violence as a health issue.
This episode of the SGU is a great discussion on the subject as well.
Here are some topics that I tried to get us onto at some point but I don't think I really succeeded.
Petition to remove blasphemy laws from Canada is common sense.
Montreal priests aren’t allowed to be alone with children anymore
We did talk about this a little bit though
Thanks to our Patrons
Rob and Nathan
