Could it be? Are the CultureCasters back on the horse after a two-part live extravaganza, more more miles than a presidential primary candidate and more excuses than, um, well…a presidential primary candidate?
Yessir/ma’am. We’re back and on track, for tha reelz.
For the first episode after the live gig, we’ve got Tony Jones talking about his newest book, “Did God Kill Jesus?” We dig down into why Tony deconstructs the theology of penal substitutionary atonement (tee, hee, penal), but still hangs onto belief in the bodily resurrection, among other theo-nerd goodness. We also touch for a few on the cyber-drama around tony and the release of this book. Worth a listen for that alone, in our opinion.
We touch on the clown-car insanity that is the growing GOP primary field, plus we score the recent Santorum-versus-Pope-Francis throwdown intellectual cage match over climate change (hint: it wasn’t close) and how a doctor helped a blind woman see her unborn baby.
How? Because science!
In our recommendations, we celebrate all things “trans” on the small screen these days, plus Slim digs into the archives for a new/old series favorite about fantastical assassins. All I’ll say is grab your garlic…
Hang tight, because we have another episode comin’ up right quick, along with a live show at Wild Goose in North Carolina with guests co-hosts Micky jones and Josh Linton joining Christian as they chat it up with guests Romal Tune, Leroy Barber and Tony Kriz. Oh and if you’ve heard of a couple of bands called Gungor or The Liturgists, you might want to grab a good seat and have your listening ears on, as we’ll enjoy the music of Lisa Gungor!
We’ve also got another live offering in Columbus coming July 20th, but this one’s super-groovy. We’ll be doing a joint Homebrewed/CultureCast show with Amy and Christian Piatt, plus Homebrewed guru Tripp Fuller. Guests include Sharon Watkins, Rick Lowery and the band Populis. We’d tell you more, but the show’s already sold out. D’oh!
How, oh how, do they smush so much goodness into one show? No clue here on our end. We just throw stuff on the wall and pray it sticks. Yay, stick!
