  • Unpopular Opinions about books - in what will likely become a recurring bit the hosts each share one unpopular opinion about books. Beware Cs.S. Lewis and John Piper fans, you may come away unhappy.
  • How can we call music excellent that is profane? A listener sent in this question after our previous praise of Kanye West.
  • TRUMP & HILLARY! HILLARY & TRUMP! We discuss the madness that is the current politic response among Christians and what might, maybe be a better way.

  • Why is Cam Newton such a controversial figure? Ted find him insufferable, and Barnabas thinks he's awesome. A debate ensues.

  • If we could go back in time and talk to our 20-year-old selves what advice would we give? And would we even listen to that advice?
  • Churches are not businesses, so how should they use business principles? Or should they at all?
