We give you biblical answers that no-one asked for. Listen to two authors demonstrate the Dunning-Kruger effect with style. We're writing a book and these are our discussions.
How Did the Coin Get in the Fish?
'How did the coin get in the fish?' - Chris and Tom explore that weird miracle where Jesus makes a coin appear in a fish and perhaps does some sneaky tax evasion.

'If Jesus had an identical twin, would they both be the Messiah?' - Recorded in front of a live Facebook audience, Chris and Tom discuss the logistics of a double messiah.
Do We Poop in the New Creation?

Was Jesus a Rubbish Carpenter?

Would Jesus Go On Reality TV? - Featuring Hi Josh
'If Jesus went on a reality TV show, which one would it be and would he win?' This week we have our first ever guest, the brilliant and world famous Hi Josh sharing all his reality TV and Jesus knowledge with us. It's nice to finally have an expert around.
Total, utter, wonderful madness
Who knew there are so many questions I am not asking!!
Chris and Tom weave nuanced and thoughtful theology into conversations about some of the most ridiculous topics imaginable.
Genius. And I can’t look away.
Lamingtons are good and so is this show
I am literally writing this review while drinking a very good home brewed Lamington stout.
First, four stars because its a good show and well worth a listen, especially after work when you’re wanting something fun but thoughtful to relax with on a walk with the dog. Of course it’s still good if you don’t have a dog. Or a walk.
Being human, of course the question becomes - why not five stars? Well, the fifth star is missing because:
1) How can you be exalted unless you at least have one seat you can move up?
2) In the episode on ‘Was Jesus a Rubbish Carpenter?’ I was disappointed they didn’t look at John 2, given Jesus was obviously a great wine-maker. As a home brewer I expect, even without a miracle, he would know so much about the process his presence would definitely help me improve this 9/10 Lamington stout I am enjoying. In particular whilst it tastes great it could have a better head on the beer. However, Jesus would probably be more interested in how my home brew might be used to serve others in love. Even so I don’t think he’d neglect the brew.
3) How can you send in questions you’re not asking - technically doesn’t someone else have to send that in on your behalf?
To finish, I do wonder two things - would Jesus listen to this podcast on 1.5 speed - and if Jesus made you a sandwich would it taste better than any sandwich you’d ever tasted?
