    Ep. 111 - David Zach "Human Trafficking pt. 1"

    Ep. 111 - David Zach "Human Trafficking pt. 1"

    Guest Info/Bio:

    This week I welcome David Zach. David Zach is the lead singer and songwriter for the rock band Remedy Drive as well as an advocate in the fight against human trafficking. The band has recorded two concept albums to shine a light on slavery and to celebrate the modern day abolition. The band's community and fan base has contributed around $350,000 in donations and in-kind donations to the counter trafficking organization The Exodus Road.

    When the band is not on tour David volunteers with The Exodus Road as an undercover operative. He spends time in brothels and in the red-light districts where underage girls and boys are sold by the hour. His role while undercover is to identify instances of minors being sold, and to capture actionable evidence of their trafficking using covert gear, some of which is funded by the Remedy Drive community and fan base.

    Upon returning from deployment overseas David uses the band and his platform to advocate for the victims of human trafficking, to shine a light on slavery and to speak about his time overseas with the goal of recruiting and funding the fight which is the modern underground railroad. He has spoken at many of the major festivals during talkback sessions, main stages and seminar tents. He also speaks at colleges, conferences, high school campuses and churches. David's message centers upon a core belief of both Remedy Drive and The Exodus Road - "Justice is in the hands of the ordinary".

    To hear about raids/rescues and everything going on the front lines text “remedy” to 51555.

    Ep. 109 - Dan Koch "The Rapture/End Times Theology"

    Ep. 109 - Dan Koch "The Rapture/End Times Theology"

    Guest Info/BIo:

    This week I have a fascinating conversation with Dan Koch. Dan got his start in professional songwriting in 2002 with his band Sherwood. They released three full albums and a handful of shorter EPs, toured the US, Europe & Japan, and generally had a great time. As that season of life ended, he settled in Seattle and began transitioning into writing music for film & TV. He’s been fortunate to work with some great people, and has landed some 80+ national TV & radio spots in about 8 years. Dan is also host of the You Have Permission, Depolarize!, and Reconstruct podcasts.

Truth?

This podcast it’s so full of heretical doctrine and lies. You will not find the gospel here. To all Christians who discover this, know the truth of scripture itself and test the words of these wolves against the scriptures. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

The gospel?

the podcast is full of blatant heresy. Two stars because it’s interesting to hear what theological liberals are saying these days. You definitely won’t find the gospel of Jesus on this podcast.
