We produced four programs in the past two months. In November, James Zimmerman interviewed Grant Steves in two programs titled "Inerrancy: The Christian Text and Christian Fundamentalism Why?" In December, Grant Steves conducted two interviews titled, "Lynn Fellman as Artist and Lynn Fellman as DNA Artist." If you would like to help on the cable program or sponsor the program on your city or have ideas for a future program please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

At our November meeting we announced that we were not going to renew our contract with KTNF AM 950 radio due to cost. Instead, we were going to create a live podcast of our program, which would cost us almost nothing. Now it looks like we're going to have the best of both worlds.
KTNF did not want to lose us, so they made a lower, counter-offer, which we accepted. We have signed a contract to continue for the first six months of 2009.
However, KNTF would like to charge us the full rate again after those six months. The only way we can do this is to find a co-sponsor who will pay for half. With that in mind, we are open to experimenting, by changing our show into an "Atheist-Theist News Hour" and finding a religious co-sponsor.
