The BadChristian Podcast

Mike Herrera of MxPx joins Matt and Toby in studio while Toby is in Seattle for a Matt & Toby show. They talk about sound guys, tour managers, and getting kicked off shows for smoking. Did you know MxPx used to get frustrated on the road with Christian ska band, O.C. Supertones, for preaching so much on stage, MxPx has their own beer, and Mike wasn't confident enough in Pokinatcha (MxPx's first album) to share news of its release with his high school peers? How did that MxPx punk mascot come about and is it true that a Satanist helped with Life in General's album artwork?

Our friend Matt Johnson helped write Joey's book, was a part of the Tooth and Nail early days, and was an integral part of Mars Hill in Seattle.  He just wrote a book, "Getting Jesus Wrong," that reflects on how far off track the church has gotten from Jesus' teachings.  Matt, Toby and Matt Johnson discuss the real power that Facebook gives to chumps, how the left is similar to fundamentalism and Toby actually longs for the apocalypse.  And while Joey's away, the three spend some time "Joey bashing."

Iron sharpens iron? You'll have to be the judge. Chad Johnson, an old time friend of Matt and Toby's and founder of ComeandLive.com and TakeHold Records, joins us with David Pierce, Ben Pierce (Steiger.org), all three bringing a different angle of what it means to be a Christian.  Should Toby and Matt be more evangelical at Emery shows? Why did Aaron Gillespie, due to using some choice words, get the boot from speaking at a Steiger event?  How vital to the gospel is the message of sanctification? Do we pick and choose what qualifies as sanctification and overlook possibly more important examples? Lastly, Joey admits to a stark example of him being a sexist in the workplace.

Singer of long-time Christian ska band Five Iron Frenzy, Reece joins us to reflect on the early days of touring and their Kickstarter success, discusses how the ska band Less than Jake acted more Christ-like than most Christian bands, and goes a bit into how the church is warped politically. Toby will start going to church again only if it's a church he started, his family views his podcasting and music career as great jokes and Joey's son thinks theirs a penis in his dad's mouth. And in the Damn News, evangelizing in strip clubs.

Andy Othling, mastermind behind Lowercase Noises (LowerCaseNoises.com) BC Music's newest artist, discusses his unique musical craft and gives us a peak into his life, inspiration, his successful music career, what his faith (or lack of) in God currently looks like and why people admire his pedalboard more than his music. The fellas also discuss why marriage counseling is effective only when couples want it to be, how culture's approach to sex potentially stunts a woman's ability to be free, and the advantages of having a penis.

Lastly, hear how Emery helped pioneer skinny jeans by wearing girl jeans, Joey shares a racially charged story that makes everyone uncomfortable and Matt, inspired by Oral Roberts, is going to start a new college, named Anal Roberts.

You get some in studio performances from these two brilliant musicians and we talk a bit about “worship music,” how these guys make a living on their music, the infamous “f-word gospel song,” and how both have changed since being worship leaders at Mars Hill Church.

Pastor Tim Kellers’ convictions on male headship cost him recently but he took it like a champ. Matt, Toby and Joey have changed a lot on their perspective of male headship and women pastors, have you?  Vice President Mike Pence swears he’ll never dine alone with a woman; (i.e. the Billy Graham Rule) is this respect or sexism? Toby’s dog needs knee surgery and Pastor Joey definitely is against paying money to help animals. Also, we hear how a big time mega church pastor talks about wealth and it’s apparent that he seems to forget just how wealthy he is himself!
