March 4th, 2016 Episode 41

Hi and welcome to the brainstorm podcast. This is episode 41 and today is March 4th, 2016. I’m Cory and my panel tonight are Destin, Angela, Rene, and Chippy, and the always amazing Dave doing sound here in Roman Empire studios in Regina, Saskatchewan. Tonight we’ve got Lavada Luening  on google hangouts with us. Lavada is an active atheist and feminist from Wisconsin, owner of the Secular She Thinker youtube channel and an increasingly popular speaker at conferences.

10:15 pm music break –For our music break this episode we have a song that Rene recommended, Emotionless by Red Sun Rising, an older song by a band that I have always enjoyed we’ve got Synthetic by Spineshank, and our third song is Zero Mass by Third Ion. Third Ion is currently doing an indegogo campaign to fund their next album. I’ll put the link in the show notes on thebrainstormpodcast.com and brainstormblog.net but if you want to go there before we finish the live show you can go to www.indiegogo.com/projects/third-ion-new-album-biolith-nearly-complete. I know that’s a bit to remember but if you go to our websites then you can find the link there and go support a great local band.
