    capitalism, catholic, politics, wages

    This is what happens when one guy had 3 hours of sleep and the other guy is 3 beers in before the conversation starts. "Living Wage" <-- is this too vague to actually help guide business that wants to be righteous unto Yahweh? Gomer says TOO VAGUE. Luke says IS GOD EVEN REAL! It's a great episode of us yelling.

    90's, music, work

    We started talking about Fiona Apple's "Criminal", then Luke posited that 90's pop was "deeper" because Gen-Xers were angsty and hypersexual. We disagreed, until it came to Ginger Spice. Then, we agreed too much! Also, Gomer is a boss and Luke wonders if I can make my employees virtuous. Gomer doubts it. END PART ONE.

    July 12th, 2019  |  1 hr 4 mins
    catholic, contentment, family, grace, happiness

    I love the Stewart story! Conversion to Catholicism, dead-end unhappy life, a return to the land and farming, and pooping in a bucket, to discovering the grace of enough. Rest assured, her personal commitment to Christ will make you happy you suffered through Luke and me till the bitter end. She's amazing.

    July 5th, 2019  |  1 hr 19 mins
    catholic, healing, hope, sex, young adults

    The Catholic Young Adult scene is filled with hookups. We ignore this, we aren't doing ministry of any sort. Then we dive into Healing and then Hope. At the end, it's a SHOCKING story of hope and prayer.
