The BadChristian Podcast (general)

Our guest this week is Jesse Smith (Zao, Jesse Smith & The Holy Ghost). We let Joey do this one all on his own and we think he killed it. Also, this episode marks Toby and Joey’s last time together in Charleston recording together. And in the news, we all take bets on how many wieners we can eat.

Enjoy this live performance as a BC Clubber introduces the podcast that Matt, Toby and Joey perform live in front of hundreds of Christian festival goers in between Emery sets. Joey fails to honor the crowd and control his language, and Matt suggests that Christianity need to police their own in the same way that we would hope Islam would.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

The three reflect on Matt’s unique emotional response to his miscarriage a year ago and the grand finale? Matt sets out to prove that the “miracle of life” is a myth. Also, we discover that Toby would like to be stranded on a deserted island. And a lot of talk about the feelings and thoughts of carrots.

Also in the show, if cussing isn’t a sin, do we want our kids cussing in K-5?  Matt, Toby and Joey discuss their different approaches in parenting when it comes to the “bad words.” Joey also does month of pre-marital counseling with a couple, does their wedding and gets zero. Stiffed. Matt wants a ticket for peeing in public and Toby is now a one-man-wedding service provider.

Church infrastructure is failing pastors.  Why are they given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to extra-marital affairs? Was it a misdirected zeal for the sake of the gospel when Tchividjian’s elders tried to keep his affair hidden?  Why are narcissists attracted to the Pastoral profession? Also, Joey kicks alligators, Matt has a theory about Stockholm Syndrome in pets and we have a short interview with BC clubber Silas George.

Is that opening refrain of Amazing Grace there to bring in the Holy Spirt or just to butter you up?  Is Devin Shelton more of a ladies man than we ever imagined?  Is it possible to be a worship leader who is not a people person?  Also, can somebody buy Toby a Yeti tumbler and a working car ASAP!

Does the current model of the Church need to be scrapped?  Should we kill the sermon or is it already dead?  Is my small group just a way for me to feel like am doing something without really doing anything?  Should Church look more like the TonightShow with guests and a band?  These are just some of the topics Toby, Matt and Joey get into this week.  Hold on to your Bibles, it’s about to get real!

Toby is losing weight, Matt is gaining weight, and there is a possibility that all three guys may soon all meet at just over 200 pounds.  Todays discussion includes fat shaming, political correctness and then gives way to discussing how anxiety, defensiveness, and jealousy would be perhaps favorable qualities in a more primitive or post apocalyptic society.
