On 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 banter, 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!
