Show Alert: Al & Mike Show Tonight at 8:30PM EST (and Contest!)

The second last episode of the Al & Mike Show will go live at 8:30PM Eastern time, as we start gearing up for the new show to launch in two weeks. Tonight, Justin Trottier, Executive Director for the Centre for Inquiry will join us to talk more about those atheist bus ads.

We'll have the phone lines and Skype lines open tonight if you want to get in on the debate. If you prefer to use the phone, but do not want to call long-distance to Toronto, you can email us at [email protected] with your phone number and quick description of what you want to say, and we'll call you.

The Skype ID is: almikeshow

The Toronto-local studio line is: 1-647-258-1707

The show streams live from the Shotgun Blog, and from ustream here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/al-and-mike-show


If you're a listener to the Al & Mike Show and you have a blog, as part of our latest push to expand WSRadio, we are going to be giving out a weekly prize to one blogger who publishes our live ustream feed on their blog during the show. But here's the catch, the contest only kicks in if at least five blogs participate each week. 

To sign-up for the contest, it's simple: by no later than 15 minutes before the show (that's 8:15pm Eastern time) you post the ustream feed by pasting this hunk of HTML into a blog post:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="400" height="320" id="utv9101"><param name="flashvars" value="autoplay=false&amp;brand=embed"/><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/><param name="movie" value="http://www.ustream.tv/flash/live/1/133379"/><embed flashvars="autoplay=false&amp;brand=embed" width="400" height="320" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" id="utv9101" name="utv_n_328985" src="http://www.ustream.tv/flash/live/1/133379" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" /></object><a href="http://www.ustream.tv/" style="padding:2px 0px 4px;width:400px;background:#FFFFFF;display:block;color:#000000;font-weight:normal;font-size:10px;text-decoration:underline;text-align:center;" target="_blank">Video chat rooms at Ustream</a>

Then you email [email protected] with a link to your blog. The winner will be chosen 30 minutes after the end of the show every week. Prizes will include cash (payable through PayPal) and other gifts, which will be announced every week.

This contest will also continue after the end of the Al & Mike Show's run, within the next incarnation to fill the spot.
