You may have noticed that I do videos now (the next episode of Riffing on Mail Call should be up tomorrow, hopefully). What you may not know (because I have never mentioned it before now) is that I’m after volunteers to participate in a video series I’m producing titled The God Questions.
“What,” you must surely be asking by now, leaning into your computer monitor anxiously, biting your nails, nearly frantic to relieve this unexpected but not entirely unwelcome tension, “the fuck is The God Questions?”
It is (or will be, hopefully) a series of interviews, conducted by me, with people on the subject of religion. It doesn’t matter what you are — Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Wiccan, Mormon, Scientologist, Oprah-watcher, or even just an ordinary atheist like me — if you remotely think you might have even the slightest thing to say on the subject of religion, you qualify.
The interviews will all start out the same way, with me asking you the same two questions that I ask everyone else in the series:
1. Do you believe in God?
Based on your answers, the conversation will go on from there. And this is a conversation, not a debate, not a nefarious attempt by me to push my personal beliefs (or lack thereof) on anyone else, or to make a case for my viewpoint instead of yours. It’s not a commercial for your religion, or my atheism. It’s a discussion, and I promise that it won’t be a combative one, at least from my end.
We’ll each be wearing a clip-on microphone, and I’ll record our interview with my adorable little Kodak Zi8 HD camcorder, and then it’ll be posted to my channel on YouTube for all to see.
Now then: If you’re interested, email me. Keep in mind that I’m in Washington County, Maryland, so if you are reading this from some far-flung location like Kiev, or Mombasa, or Wheeling, our interview will likely have to wait until such a time as you just happen to be in town. I’m willing to travel within my own little region here, but not to the other side of the fucking country, you know what I’m saying? You all are welcome, of course, to drag your asses to Hagerstown to meet me.
So. All I need is you, and a place where we can sit and have a nice private chat for anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on how much time you’ve got, and whether or not I can plug the camera in somewhere. If you’re interested in being a part of The God Questions, let me know. If you’re not interested, but you know someone who might be, let them know, then one of you let me know. I’ve found that works quite well.
