Today on the podcast, Caleb interviews Anthony "AJ" Weisensel, a good friend of the podcast and a Christian artist in his own right, on his graphic design work and the ways he uses his talent to honor Christ. The questions he asks AJ are written out below, but you'll have to listen to the episode to get the answers:
How do you maintain integrity as an artist while still remaining relevant to the culture?
What are ways that you personally experience other visual art?
Do you know of any examples of visual art in the Bible that you can share?
Can you elaborate on some of your own personal moral boundaries with visual art?
What are some of your favorite mediums to cross-over with visual art?
Who is your favorite character in the Bible and how do you relate to him?
As a graphic designer, what are some things you notice/like about film?
What are your plans for the future, specifically in your career and work with graphic design?
We also answer some more general listener questions about anything and everything, and the during the course of that, we reference James 1:14-15.

We are back after our long hiatus, fully recovered from the busyness of the last month and ready to record more episodes! Today we have a guest back on the show after a long crop of episodes with just the Powers brothers--Hannah Laatsch is back, just in time for us to send her off to college. Today we talk about music once again, another song review episode, this time dealing with songs about transitions.
The first song we review, Caleb's pick, is "Hourglass" by Sleeping At Last, which is about the transition you make when someone you love passes on. How do you deal with death? How is anything ever the same?
Connor's song is Rise Against's "This Is Letting Go", which talks about the transition of letting go of a relationship. The difference between trying to solve something and just being okay with what has transpired.
Last, but certainly not least, is Hannah's song "Hopeless Wanderer" by Mumford & Sons. Hopeless Wanderer is about someone who leaves home and tries to discover who they are, which is one of the biggest transitions we all have to make.
