Top-of-mind ramblings about faith, society, and geek culture.

    Justice for George Floyd

    Justice for George Floyd

    George Floyd was murdered at the hands of three police officers this week.







    A lot has been said about the incident and, thankfully, the officer who was leaning on George’s neck was arrested and charged with third-degree murder.







    Listen in as I process my thoughts on the situation. It’s a return to the top-of-mind format that originally started this podcast.

    A Point of Clarification [STR4P 25]

    A Point of Clarification [STR4P 25]

    In the first podcast in this series, I was dancing around a “taboo” when it comes to podcasting: profit.







    Since its inception, podcasters have been at odds over whether or not we should profit from our craft.







    Hopefully, this brief episode clears up my intentions.







    This podcast is rather short so you may want to check out the latest episodes of Truce Podcast and Modern Christian Men.

    Failure to Plan

    Failure to Plan

    Failure to plan has been the biggest hurdle in my podcasting “career”. I’m not sure you can actually call it a career, but, I think you know what I mean.







    What happens when I fail to plan is that I end up recording an episode of my podcast by myself the morning it needs to be released.







    If I’m being honest with myself, I expected this to happen and subconsciously planned to record an episode by myself about failing to plan.







    If hearing me talk about how I’ve failed to plan over the last 15 years interests you, have a listen.







    You can hear how other podcasters have overcome failure in the Examining Failure series.
