Unseen Pub #5

Unseen Pub #5: no agenda, no show notes, no host, no specific panelists, and so on. We just talk about whatever interests us, from punching sharks to Mars to marriage. If you want to watch live, follow the link below.  Also, the pub is as open participation as we can make it.

#upub5 was probably our most political and contentious Pub yet. Participants were Buck Field, Ciro Villa, Nick Nielsen, Paul Carr, Sam Lichtenstein, and some guy who wouldn't identify himself except as an ex Jehovah's Witness. Do JWs really believe that Christ returned in 1914?

Unseen Listeners subreddit, RIP

We're abandoning the listener's subreddit we have long promoted as a place for listeners to post and comment. It' s been open for two years, we rarely get more than 2 uniques in a day, and most days, just zero. There have been almost no comments or listener posts. we do't even get spam. So, it's simply not worth the effort to keep it up to date.

The old posts remain up, and moderation has been cranked all the way to prevent link dumping and spam.

If anyone wants to take it over, just let us know.
