    S2E8 - Phil Vischer | Bob & Phil’s Excellent Adventure into Church History, Culture Hot Topics & Puppets

    On our final episode of season 2, our guest is author, animator and filmmaker Phil Vischer. He has had a significant impact on American culture with his groundbreaking children’s series, VeggieTales. And then, at the peak of his success, everything turned upside down.  Over-aggressive expansion coupled with a lawsuit from a former distributor forced Phil’s company, Big Idea Productions, into bankruptcy in 2003.  Phil lost his company, his characters, his dream. Rather than losing hope, Phil found himself with a ministry he never expected – a ministry to anyone who has lost a dream. Since, Phil detailed the dramatic rise and fall of his dream and the lessons learned in his book, Me, Myself & Bob along with launching another Children's series called What’s In The Bible and a top Christian podcast called The Holy Post Podcast. You can hear Pastor Bob being interviewed on the Holy Post podcast as well which is a must-listen if you haven’t as well!

    Pastor Bob and Phil hit on their interconnected history, issues going on in church & culture, the re-emergence of puppets, systematized evangelism & a 'Let's Predict the Future' game. A MUST listen rich with wisdom & laughter.

Encouraging

A loving, open dialogue helping to encourage love of all of those created in Gods image.

Never stop Learning and Love People

I discovered this podcast by listening to an interview with Bob on the Holy Post podcast. I’ve learn so much from these podcasts about being more open to others who do not look like me or have a belief system like me. It’s so important for me to see people, build relationships and love them. Love and see people like Jesus. Thank you for helping me grow in my walk with the Lord.

John Geo ,

So much needed today!

Open, honest and insightful conversation!

Loved it!
