Best College Atheist Groups

The Guelph Skeptics at the University of Guelph won $300 from the Student Secular Alliance for Best Media Appearance.
They were in the campus newspaper once, then twice. They were in their local city paper, and most impressively, they are hosting their own radio show in Canada. They’re working on getting the show syndicated so they can play is across North America (it already airs in Guelph, in Victoria, BC and Winnipeg, MB).

Katie Kish of the group says: “With our own radio show we’ve had interviews with each of us on it, interviews with our speaker, coverage of our events. Hopefully it’ll all be podcasted soon.”

One of the newspaper articles was about me! [How do you solve a problem like Moran?] It seems like a pretty fair representation of my talk at Guelph.

    How do you solve a problem like Moran?

    So you're considered a problem? Congratulations.

  2. So you're considered a problem? Congratulations.

    Dang, now I had to read the article. Quite good IMHO, even if some such good lines were drowned in a rather monotonous text. [Errm... reminds me of my comments, actually.]

    But they presented two appalling facts:

    1) There are now two species of Canada geese! Sheesh... as if we hadn't enough of those canadians over here already.

    2) They report that Dr. Moran addressed the concerns of each person politely and without incident. Which makes me ask: where is the real Dr. Moran, and what did you do to him? Anxious atheists are awaiting. ;-)
