28: Martin Luther, Leader of the Reformation

This week, the Powers Brothers talk about Martin Luther and his Ninety-Five Theses. We discuss the importance of being a good leader, the proper time to cause "division" in a church, and some of the problems with the Roman Catholic church in the 1500's. We also reference the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. If you want to learn more about Martin Luther, check out the Wikipedia article here and then look at the citations to find some academic sources to do some extra reading. Yes, that's write, we're implying that you should do some homework.  LINKS:Podcast Website YouTubeTwitch ChannelPatreon CampaignCaleb's WebsiteDiscord ...

27: Bible Study in Galatians 1

This week we break form yet again to try something a little different--we're gathering with our friends in the living room of a little cottage to record a Bible study where we go through the first chapter of Galatians and talk about what God is speaking through Paul to the Galatians...and to us. Hannah is back from college to record with us this week, and we are joined by many other friends as well--some that you may recognize from references in previous episodes. Thanks for listening, y'all! LINKS:Podcast Website YouTubeTwitch ChannelPatreon CampaignCaleb's WebsiteDiscord ...

26: Aesop's Fable to Short Story

This week Connor helps Caleb brainstorm a short story for his creative writing class based off of the Aesop's Fable, "The Man and the Lion." Connor is a weird mood, so lots of random things get said, and we go back and forth for quite a while as to what this story is actually about...but hopefully it's helpful to you in your own process of brainstorming.

25: A Look Back On Twenty-Five Episodes

This week on the Christian Artist, the Powers brothers take a nostalgic backwards glance at all they've accomplished with the show so far... So, basically, a bunch of dumb inside jokes and lots of complaining about no one listening to said dumb inside jokes. But, hey! We sure had fun. But seriously, though, this week Caleb poses twenty-five questions to Connor in an epic game of trivia that will decided the fate of the world. Or at least the next twenty-five episodes of the show. Or maybe not any of those things. Maybe it's just for bragging rights.I'm in a weird mood as I write this description, I apologize. But yes...enjoy! And feel free to play along with the trivia and comment with your scores :) LINKS:Podcast Website YouTubeTwitch ChannelPatreon CampaignCaleb's WebsiteDiscord ...

24: Our Not-So Halloween-Themed Episode (Concept Albums)

This week, the Powers Brothers host the most schizophrenic episode of The Christian Artist to date! We talk about anything and everything, and in particular order, even though our initial plan for this episode was to explain the idea and talk about examples of concept albums. We definitely do that (and in the process, end up brainstorming a general idea for our own concept album that we'll be writing over the next few months), but we also end up taking a listener question and ranting about random topics that have nothing to do with Halloween or anything else. We hope you enjoy! We reference a WWUTT video talking about Halloween, The Classic Crime, Sleeping At Last, Mae, Emery, the random nudist in the Garden of Gethsemane, and Kevin McCreary's reviews of Christian movies.

23: Inside the Mind of the Writer

This week Caleb and David talk about the novels they are writing--how they arrived at the initial concept, how the writing has been so far, and what their plans are for finishing it. We also get into many side conversations about other stories we've been working on, ways to give good feedback to writers who want you to read their book, and anything else that pops into our heads. Through it all, we reference Brandon Sanderson, his new book Shadows of Self, NaNoWriMo, and Caleb's website, where you can read along chapter-by-chapter with the novel he's writing.
