AS302: Andrew Torrez and Cognitive Dissonance!

Here’s the 3rd and final part of my episode 300 spectacular! Joining me first is Andrew Torrez from the little known fledgling podcast Opening Arguments! First we do a little reminiscing, then a segment where I try to play the lawyer and he plays the questioner! Finally, we discuss the hate speech law that Jake brought up in his segment.

After that, it’s my great podcasting friends Tom and Cecil of Cognitive Dissonance!! As I always say, these guys really gave me my start and I owe them a ton, so I’m very thrilled to have them here for the final part of AS300!! We have a discussion on Twitter and free speech, where Tom shares some thoughts that have been percolating for him lately, and Cecil shares a great story about someone who blew up at them online but later met them in person…

Thank you SOOOO much for 300 episodes, and for all the support over at!!! You guys are the best!

  1. Not sure where to find your email, but close enough. You actually put me on to cog dis and the whole scathing crew, yours was the third podcast i tried when i thought to search related to atheism, and the one of those three i still listen to.

    I listened to the tyler vela abortion episode to test, and it was one of the last three, for some time frame.

  2. Tom, you were the one that turned me on to Cog Dis, as well as GAM and many others. Now you have your two examples!

  3. Third! As a mennonite discovering atheism in my late 30’s, I needed podcasts to listen to while I was (still am) a janitor at a very conservative Christian church to help with earning money so I could earn my PhD in medicinal plant biochemistry.
    Found your podcast and thought it was very thoughtful and was actually turned off the Scathing Atheist until you had them on your show. Now subscribed to all the usual suspects. Except T and the B. Tried for one or two episodes but a little too boring for me (a case of been there, done that for me I guess).
    Anyway, thanks for all the good, free content and keep up the good work. As soon as I get a real job I plan on becoming a patreon for all the podcasts I listen to.
