Join two little church mice M and B as they discuss life topics and events from their unique little creature point of view. They are two Orthodox Christians from Belgrade Serbia, so they share a Christian perspective. They love to have fun conversations and publish them on Mondays! And eat cookies. And cake. Also cheese. No fish please. Ok, some fish. But no hake!
Mice Pilgrimages: Dubrava Monastery
In the first episode of the series we've been meaning to make since forever M & B are joined by M's family to visit the beautiful Dubrava Monastery on the slopes of the Zlatibor mountain. We talk about and share our experiences of this hidden jewel of asceticism that was founded in a very miraculous manner.
Patriarch Porphyrios - Man for All Seasons
Serbs finally got their patriarch and we comment on multiple facets: what were people hoping for during the elections? Did even the atheists have their preferred candidate? (Yes) How difficult is to be a patriarch? (Very) Will we stray from the subject? (Yes)
Bishops, Government and Miscellanea
Today we talk about... well, everything. Bishops, electing the new Serbian patriarch, how the Serbian constitution from the 19th century treated slavery, prayer for the government, the people in power... you know, all the things normal people talk about in their spare time! And now you get to listen to it! Hint: a small treat in the end.
Are Orthodox Christians Toxic Online Or Salt To The World?
Well, Twitter's dark pattern design is at it again, for the sole purpose of pitting us against one another. After a minor Twitter scuffle, we share some of our thoughts and opinions: why do Orthodox Christians have a reputation of toxicity online? Does it have to do with the Faith, or with demographics, or is there some maleficent part of Twitter's design that crunches out arguments and senseless fights? Is humor a problem? And finally - how can we do better at witnessing Christ both to one another and to those outside of the Church?
The Don’t Let TikTok Kill Children Challenge
Ok, so B triggered the Church of Satan on Twitter, and someone called him an Ecumenist (nothing new nothing novel). But that's not important because we're losing children to TikTok challenges!
Freelancers In Serbia, Feel The Pain
Being a freelancer in Serbia is no longer fun. Join us as we venture through the bogs and moors of Serbia's bureaucracy hell. Ever heard the famous hits "The eco tax" or "You need the company seal to accept this letter"? Well we who live in this Ship of Fools have. Finally, another rant episode, we didn't have one for so long.
I’m an Orthodox Christian living in South Carolina, and while I love all my Evangelical Baptist friends, there is a distinct lack of Orthodox thought in the spirituality department at least. There is a Greek cathedral about 30 minutes from where I live, and I do watch Bojan’s YouTube channel, but the portability of a podcast is just what I need. Thank y’all.
Anything that lets me listen to more B 😉 is great! Two channels and now a Podcast, thanks B and M :)
