52: Our Review of NF

This week we review the hip-hop/alternative artist NF and two of his songs: Mansion and Therapy Session. We dig into the lyrics and the music and talk about what we like and don't like. But I'm sure y'all know the drill. Enjoy! LINKS:Podcast Website YouTubeTwitch ChannelPatreon CampaignCaleb's WebsiteDiscord ...

51: The Shortest Character Tips Ever

This week we answer a listener question on characters in fiction, go on dozens of tangents, and lament on our lack of pithiness. Oh, and our favorite Hannah Laatsch is back on the podcast! We reference a few things in this podcast, some of which I have already forgotten by the writing of these liner notes, but I totally remembered to put the link to the personality type website, so you can find it here.

50: Our Review of Captain America: Civil War

For our 50th episode extravaganza, we review the new Captain America film (or Avengers 3, you might say) and talk about what it did right and what it did wrong. Yeah, there's not a whole lot on the "did wrong" side. Enjoy the episode! LINKS:Podcast Website YouTubeTwitch ChannelPatreon CampaignCaleb's WebsiteDiscord ...

49: Our Art Consumption (Num-Num)

This week the Powers brothers talk about the art we've been consuming lately. Connor's been watching the anime Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and so we end up discussing the differences between that show and its predecessor (alternate reality counterpart?), simply Fullmetal Alchemist. Caleb's almost finished with the second Percy Jackson series, Heroes of Olympus, so we also talk about some of the things both series of books did right and wrong. Along the way we talk about how to structure a story, how to avoid bloat in your story, and when to kill the thing you love most in the story you've written. We also plug our very good friend Carly's YouTube channel, which you can find at this link. LINKS:Podcast Website YouTubeTwitch ChannelPatreon CampaignCaleb's WebsiteDiscord ...

48: Building Our Ideal Church

This week we indulge in a thought experiment and pretend that we're in the process of building a new church from the ground up. How would we run it? What would our statement of faith look like? How would we do communion and baptism and ministries? Who would we hire for the different positions? We have a blast thinking about what this ideal church would look like, and we hope you a blast listening to it. Oh, and our great friend Miki joins us and adds some random commentary at opportune moments. Everyone should start a petition to get her on the podcast more (and to actually say things).  I know I tend to say that I'll put things in the liner notes and then I don't...but this time I'm actually doing it! Below is a list of things that were mentioned in the episode that you might want to check out: The Evidence Bible The Evangelical Free Churches of America "What We Believe" Page (Note: We do actually disagree with one word in this: premillenial. The EFCA believes that Christ will have a literal thousand-year reign on Earth, which we disagree with. But we have an unpopular eschatology. Maybe we'll talk about it at some point.)

47: Self-Righteousness

We finish out our little mini-series on Emery songs with one last one about self-righteousness and what it does to a person. We dig into that theological concept further and talk about its consequences. LINKS:Podcast Website YouTubeTwitch ChannelPatreon CampaignCaleb's WebsiteDiscord ...
