The BadChristian Podcast
Our guest is Chris Simpson from the bands Mineral, The Gloria Record, Pop Unknown and more recently, Zookeeper. We are honored to have Chris on the show and we explore later the idea of influence and if music can really save your life. Also, Joey can’t stop playing with his toes. Toby doesn’t understand why his body is growing hair without his consent. He also realizes it is too “emotionally expensive” for him to have empathy for everybody. And in the news, a dog eats gorilla glue.

While we continue our celebration of McDonald’s appreciation month, Toby has some huge news that is not the damn news! Matt actually had a good time on his Disneyland vacation and might have experienced love for the first time. Is there any truth to the rumor that Joey has started his own cult and is referring to himself as "The Prophet Joseph Svendson?! The truth is, dare we say, life changing! We also get an update from Taylor on the BC Club!

In this episode we explore the dangers of dubious awards for kids honoring concepts like kindness and how the idea of “legacy” sets us all up for unnecessary feelings of failure. We finally get to the bottom of just how long Joey’s "really long sermon" was. And in the news, look out, it’s KILLER BEES!

In this jam packed episode, Matt doubts the science behind resurrections and questions food morals. Joey doesn’t think people poop in heaven. Toby isn’t sure about anonymous giving or the specialness of birthdays. Matt also kicks off McDonalds Appreciation Month and introduces us to the charming expression “vagina smasher.” And in the damn news...have you ever wanted to get high and lift weights? All your dreams may be coming true!

We talk to Greg about his becoming a YouTube phenomenon, the transgender bathroom debate and his unique communication style. Despite his likability, we challenge his approach in calling unbelievers out for their sin, his belief in the need for America to be Christianized and his brashness at the risk of sounding unloving. Toby also may finally be on board with Joey’s belief that lying can often be a good thing.
