The BadChristian Podcast
We talk about holy roller internet trolls and Toby’s befuddlement with Christians praying with their arms extended. Also, is there such thing as a stupid prayer request? What about praying for the dead and the ridiculous “unspoken request?” More importantly, we catch up with Dan and Nate from Sherwood to discuss their new record and tour as well as debut a new track from the album.

Jason Soto (Cookbook) of the critically acclaimed hip-hop outfit, L.A. Symphony joins the podcast to talk hip-hop, the deconstruction of his former evangelical faith, the ensuing treatment he received from the church, his conviction of authenticity and where he’s at now in his music career. Joey also saw a cat trying to commit suicide and another pastor makes an unnecessary awkward joke to find common ground. Check out Cookbook’s music and hire him to be a coach. Find him @CookBookthePR.

Jay Newman from AudioFeed Festival joins us to chat about the upcoming festivities this summer (June 30-July 3 2016) and the vision of this newer faith and music festival. Jay talks about the origins of the fest and what he thinks makes it special (Hint - running water and air conditioning!). Matt and Toby also promise to play The Question from “front to back” with Devin! Get your asses to BadChristian day on July 3rd! Also, in the news, is that an angel or a porn doll? These are confusing times!

We talk divorce, abortion, open marriages, and Christianity with this blogger and podcaster. Is atheism a cause? How did he become “The Friendly Atheist?” Are there any similarities between making money off atheism and making it from ministry?  What are the dangers of religion?

Is it wrong to alter one's natural flow of artistic creation in an attempt to not ruffle feathers? We talk about Emery’s early church touring days and how, according to Toby, the Holy Spirit put a quick halt to playing any more church venues. We talk about Aaron Gillespie using certain words on our podcast and how it cost him some concert dates. He lost money but did he do the right thing? We have some audio troubles and also, Matt runs out of time and has to leave.

Matt and Toby are fresh off their Emery acoustic show in Seattle and Joey is feeling and sounding like a new man back from sabbatical. The three discuss the pointlessness of thank you cards, what gender of massage therapist Joey prefers, a new way of looking at “human resources” and another mega-church pastor biting the dust. Also, they agree that if they live to be 90 or older they will spend their final days partying it up and not worrying about what medications might damage their livers.

We hang out with a listener favorite, author and speaker Peter Enns. He’s written popular books such as "The Bible Tells Me So”, "The Evolution of Adam” and his most recent "The Sin of Certainty.” We talk to him about the future of the church, origins of humanity, whether Adam and Eve were real, the changing meaning of “evangelical" and how people should approach their bible reading.

Matt’s biggest side effect from pot edibles was normal every day anxiety. Joey’s having a hard time being himself while trying to record masturbation podcasts at the retreat center pastor’s lounge. And Toby’s fill in role as campus pastor is finally taking a toll in the form of dark clouds and horrible diarrhea. Also, we’ll be joined by Taylor for an update on the BC club!
