The BadChristian Podcast (general)

Author, Speaker, Activist, and former Pastor, Brian McLaren talks about the changing theological culture of American Christianity. Religious leaders have less control now that their followers have unlimited access to other thought-leaders online, muddying the waters of religion. This episode covers a lot of deconstructive territory, from traditional dualistic lenses, to what Christians believe about LGBTQ, and trying to convert people from other religions.

Matt's getting oddly sentimental feelings towards people and experiences that he doesn't know what to do with, but Joey loves it! Also turns out we're still Christians, even though Fundamentalists would call us Satanists.

Joey's the happiest he can remember being his whole life, and shares some vulnerable moments about his marriage and how bad it really had gotten. We've heard a lot lately about the rising use of adderall, so we thought it'd be interesting to have our guests today on to talk about their all-natural supplement with similar effects to adderall.

Joey recently heard some whopper of stories about famous pastors that seem to indicate them as entitled spoiled brats. Toby thinks Joey may be a bit too hard on them and believes it's crazy that we can't just say their names on air. What's a celebrity pastor anyway and are these stories incriminating no matter how you slice them? Oh, yeah, and YouTube takes over Matt's daughter and household.

The status quo is something we all define our lives by. Some seek to find it while others reject it in favor of a different life. Kristie and Matt MacDonald have chosen the latter. From moving their family to another country to touring the US with their three kids, these two have taken an alternative path, and it seems to be working. Check out their summer tour and new EP coming soon! Also, Matt's outraged about recycling.
