|In this episode we interview Roger Nygard, director of the newly-released-on-DVD documentary, “The Nature of Existence.” Roger traveled all over the world in search of answers to such questions as why we exist, what do we do about it, is there a God, is there a Heaven or Hell, why we masturbate, what about gay people, and most importantly, why is Orson Scott Card such a humongous douchebag?

Plus, we talk about this week’s candidates for the Mims Carter Skunk Dick of the Week Award and our mention by Skepticality‘s Swoopy on a recent Double Meat podcast. Get it while it’s hot, right here.
[ann]For our 23rd episode, we discuss the answers to crucially important questions from an Islamic perspective, including whether it is halaal to eat a mermaid and whether masturbating is okay during Ramadan if one does not “emit semen.” Also, we cover Bishop Gianfranco Girotti’s modernization of the seven deadly sins. And finally, I surprise Leighton with another secret article!
