Our 200th episode special covers the reception of our commitment ceremony. You can see some photos from the night here. You can also listen to us discussing the ceremony part back on episode 100 – we’ve also added a video of our commitment ceremony to the notes of that episode.

The episode features a return of the segment ‘When Karl Pilkington Makes Sense’ – this time on weddings. We also cover bizarre wedding traditions, regular guest (Mother) Theresa’s wedding – you can read more about her wedding on her blog and Offbeat Bride, Crimethinc podcast on anarcha-feminism and celebrating relationships and Alain De Botton’s book Religion for Atheists.

After our atheist “wedding”, Nick had a religious conversion.
