Streamathon Fundraiser: 24 Hours of AaA!

yappingpuffinsOn tour we raised the profile of freethought groups around the US, but we didn’t raise much in the way of show funds–just enough to eat and get to the next city.  And our advertisers only account for a part of our operating costs.  We’ll admit: things are kind of tight right now.  Our summer music event was an awesome community-building night of indie rock, but as a fundraiser we came up short.

So we’re hanging out, hanging out, hanging out… hanging out with the Ask an Atheist family.   We’re having ourselves a party.  Fire up the intertubes starting at 12:00 PM Pacific on Friday, October 11!  For 24 hours, the cast, crew, and friends of Ask An Atheist will be participating in our fall 2013 streamathon fundraiser.

So for 24 hours straight Oct. 11-12 noon-noon, we’ll be streaming live using Google Hangouts, entertaining you guys with our king_of_kingsbanter, fielding some questions we might not normally air on the radio, playing religiously themed video games (Left Behind PC game, anyone?) and reading your name on air when you contribute! Be prepared from some dramatic readings from the books Ray Comfort personally gifted to Becky and Sam this summer (“With Love, Ray”), and we may even have some special guests join us remotely, so keep an eye out for further details!  And as always, push the large, red, candy-like button for questions and the yellow button to contribute.  Help keep secular voices on the air!

Happy June! Now go buy a ticket…

Fans and friends:  it’s the end of the month, which means you’re probably getting paid.  Don’t wait till mid-month to buy your ticket for our summer music benefit–ten bucks is all you need for a fantastic evening of local indie-rock!  Our headliner Bodybox features occacional AaA voice Nick Kennedy lending his talent on bass.  It’s an all-ages show at Louie G’s, which has awesome pizza and burgers, a range of brews on tap, and a small classic arcade with skee-ball.  SKEE-BALL!!!  Besides being a rad place to take your kids now that school’s out for summer (without some weird mouse-man), the whole place is fully wheel-chair accessible.

Events like these are a major way in which Ask An Atheist stays on the air–contributions and advertisers alone don’t cover our costs.  Coming out to the show will help keep a secular voice on terrestrial radio and will show our local Puget Sound community that atheists are fun-loving patrons worthy of future collaboration.  Help us out, purchase your tickets in advance, and see you on Friday, June 21st!

Vote for “Ask an Atheist” for Best Local Podcast

Last year, we participated in Evening Magazine’s “Best of Western Washington” Awards – a local distinction that nets any winner a decent amount of positive attention. Thanks to all of you, we came in 2nd Place in a field of 47 candidates for the Best Local Podcast award.

We aim to win this year, but we need your help!

Evening Magazine, the local television show that hosts this annual contest will put a huge media spotlight on our little show if we pull off this surprise upset. Our winning is good for the show, good for local and regional atheism and good for atheist media visibility!

Thank you for all the support you’ve given our show in its first two years on the air and for the support you continue to give it! It only takes a moment and the impact for Ask an Atheist could be tremendous.

Also, it would really make the local fundamentalists angry if you did.

Voting for us easy!
