    7. Simon Peter and Garfunkel

    7. Simon Peter and Garfunkel

    Mike, Heather, and Tara dive into the history and legacy of Simon-Peter (or Peter, or Saint Peter, or Cephas, or Rock), who was (maybe) Jesus' favorite Disciple. We also talk about languages (shocking), some miracles of Jesus, and issues with institutional religion.

    Plus: a bonus segment about a certain scary number!

    Sorry about the sound quality on this one; we weren't recording in our usual space, and a thunderstorm started while we were recording. Yes, Heather's dog did get stressed out and poop on the carpet.

    6. I Don't Noah

    6. I Don't Noah

    This time we unlearn what we learned from the 2014 Russell Crowe movie and dig into the real story of Noah. We've got arks, we've got floods, we've got weird incest. We celebrate Pride and protests for civil rights by digging into some more Biblical justifications for racism - and why they're b******t.

    PLUS: Our bonus segment this week centers around the civilizations that spring up from Noah's sons (allegedly). What is the "Ashkenazi" of "Ashkenazi Jews"?

    5. Something About Mary

    5. Something About Mary

    This time, we take a look at the controversial story of Mary Magdalene. What do we know about one of Jesus' closest confidantes? What was their relationship, exactly? Mike geeks out about Coptic, and we review a few Apocryphal sources, including the mysterious "Gospel of Jesus' Wife." Of course, we also talk about the Da Vinci Code and other more modern legends surrounding Mary Magdalene.

    PLUS: This time our bonus segment is a particularly grisly bit of Apocrypha involving Mary Magdalene, Jesus himself, and many, many bodily fluids.

    4. Pain in the Abel

    4. Pain in the Abel

    We're back to Genesis! We take a deep dive into the Cain and Abel story, who they were, and what they signified. Was it about the hot sister this whole time? Which parts of the story were cherrypicked to justify racism? What is the Mark of Cain, really? What are your career options when God curses you to a life of wandering?

    PLUS: Stick around for a bonus segment at the end, which explores the connections between Greek gods and the Bible.

    3. Strangel Things

    3. Strangel Things

    We take a break from the Genesis stories and dig into the mythology of angels - what they look like, where they come from, and what they do in pursuit of God's will. Who (or what) is the Angel of the LORD? What happened to Lucifer? And what in the world are Nephilim?

Holy Moly Fun Listen

I really enjoyed the way the content is presented in a light and fun manner. Mike does a great job providing the show’s expert narrative, but then you have Tara and Heather’s playful questioning of Mike. Heather is easily tickled by Tara’s sarcastic and/or serious interjections during Mike’s story telling. I equate it to listening to the Car Talk guys, that get easily cracked up over the silliest comment or bad joke. Ok, sometimes they are good jokes, but it’s a fun and informative listen nonetheless.
