The Phileas Club - S5. Atheism for dummies
Dec 13 2009 86 mins  
As you can imagine, this show talks about Atheists and their views. When I mentioned I wanted to do a show on the topic, I got more interest from readers and followers than ever before. Many offered to be on the show, which I am very thankful for; I am sorry I couldn't include everyone who offered their input. We did manage to assemble an excellent panel though, and while we did tackle Atheism in all the ways I hoped we would, we also talked about many topics related to it. It is inevitable I suppose; as this is one of the most debated issues I know, we couldn't really expect to focus solely on that one idea. I hope that listeners will get both information and entertainment out of the show, and I do welcome any comment on the blog. Each time we have discussed a controversial topic after one of my blog posts, we have managed to keep things civilized and polite, and my wish for this one (if people wish to discuss) is that it stays that way. I'm confident we will (because we're all so awesome :) but it bears repeating... Thanks again to the panelists, and thanks even more to you for listening.

Roger from East Meets West (and from San Francisco) and Mohammed "the kid" from Qatar join me in this episode as we wait for that guy from Saudi Arabia to remember he's due for our panel. Yes, Turki forgot about us a second time (and he'll never hear the end of it). He does end up joining us though, and we tackle a number of issues, some very serious and some really not... Petty much as usual. Some of the topics we talk about include: police violence at the G20, Talibans resurgence, Ahmadinejad at the Durban II conference, Obama and south America and the EU elections. Enjoy!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.


The Phileas Club - S2. Republicans for dummies.
Apr 11 2009 124 mins  
In this second special we take on the whole GOP! Well, maybe not, but Brian,Richard and Randy take on the difficult task of explaining to a poor silly Frenchman what the Republican party and ideas are all about. We talk about the (often caricatured) media portrayal of their views as well as the major issues that seem to drive a wedge between the left and the right, and that often seem to be considered as extremes in many parts of the world: taxes, government reach, religion, arms control and much more. We hope you enjoy the show and find that you understand the reasoning behind the republican's ideals a little bit better, or at least that you have fun listening to our ramblings!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.


The Phileas Club - 11. Singapore Earth Hour.
Mar 29 2009 70 mins  
Two newcomers join the club. Maria from Sweden and Charles from Singapore complete this month's trio. Just to give you a quick preview, let me tell you what titles I was thinking about for the episode: "Earth Hour in the Nude" and "Fun Swedish Nurse Stories". Yes, I know! So we had a lot of fun during the show, but we also tackled serious issues though, like "these tough economic times" (drink), the pope's controversial statements and the ICC's latest rulings. As well as pirate trials in Sweden, the end of French open bars and stories from Singapore that you won't know whether you should laugh at or feel sad about... Enjoy!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.


The Phileas Club - 10. Usans.
Mar 01 2009 137 mins  
It's seems I'm unable to keep the show to a reasonable length... No matter, with guests like Tom (from the US), Julio (from Argentina/Netherlands/Space) and Turki (from Saudi Arabia), anything less would seem like a waste. This time we focus around serious and controversial topics like the Australian fires, the Isreali election, the terrorist attacks in Cairo, Hugo Chavez's referendum and the right to be a revisionist, as well as more light hearted topics like the Oscars and the oil companies' secret death rays from space.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.


The Phileas Club - S1. Islam for dummies.
Feb 12 2009 70 mins  
Do you ever get tired of thinking in stereotypes and inaccuracies? I know I do, and my knowledge of Islam certainly is vague... but here's an idea: how about sitting down with a Muslim and asking him all sorts of candid questions? Simple enough, right? But maybe you don't have a Muslim right next door to ask him yourself. Well, fear not! The Phileas Club is here to help. We asked Turki (our resident Saudi panelist) to take us on a tour of the Muslim faith. I also asked Scott (from Utah) to join the discussion and help us ask the best questions we could. And to make this show even more special we enlisted the help of twitterers around the world, too! Thanks go out to all of those who were kind enough to answer the "instant questions" I asked. So we hope you'll learn a thing or two about Islam in this episode (or at least that you'll have fun listening to Scott and I make fools of ourselves) and we'll try to bring you more "for dummies" specials in the future.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Aug 27 2008 67 mins

Patrick Beja bravely discusses issues armed only with curiosity. His questioning is provocative but never amounts to interrogation. His guests are locals with local knowledge in local context. I have learned more about the world from this podcast than any other. Beja always tries to keep an open mind (sometimes it is a struggle), and he shares the speaking stick. This podcast is about his guests and their world.
