About the Show
Luke and Gomer became friends Freshman year at the Franciscan University of Steubenville and 14 years later they started a podcast. The show oscillates between a conversation between just the two of us and interviews that we do together of other, fancier people. Sometimes we get explicit either by being too honest or by being too stupid. Either way, it's fun!

Greg Iwinski, a comedian, film reviewer (he gave Balboa 5 Stars), and podcaster, comes on the show to attack all those who think Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" should have serviced the fans' expectations more than made a great movie (minus the casino scene) and set up a world-class franchise for decades to come. Film, art, and culture are all explored. Even a rant about maintenance-mode Catholicism comes in to play!

We took 20+ questions from our listeners on Facebook and tried to answer as many as possible. No, this isn't 10 minute topics, because we abandoned the timer long ago. It's just your questions, like: stuff about Fr. James Martin, horse-sized ducks, stranger things 2, the fall of white male Hollywood, Matt Fradd, Purity Culture/slut-shaming/why we only hear about the virtue of chastity, human formation, Star Wars 8, and why Matt Field and his Fiance Clare are such badasses!
Pastor Joey Has No Answers

fundamentalism, gay-affirming, post-evangelical, small talk
Get a glass of booze ready, because in today’s show we interview Pastor Joey Svendsen from the BAD CHRISTIAN podcast, which describes itself as Post-Christian, or Post-Evangelical, or maybe just Post-Bible-Belt-Evangelicalism. Luke totally fanboys. Gomer nervously talks too much. And Joey keeps his cool.
