Let’s Talk About It is a podcast where Malcolm and Micah Morgan discuss life in three segments: Relationships, Entertainment, and Faith in Context. The relationship segment involves an exploration of the growth, the challenges, and the joys of relationships-- whether it’s romantic, platonic, or familial relationships. During the entertainment segment, the Morgans discuss shows that they’re binge-watching, shows they’re avoiding, and movies they just can’t wait to tell us about. The faith in context segment examines hot topics of the day through the context of Christian faith. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry… we may even grow a little. But let’s talk about it.
Let's Talk About "Nope"
Jordan Peele’s long-awaited #NopeMovie has finally been released and Malcolm and Micah simply could not pass up an opportunity to talk about it! They begin season three of the podcast by discussing the cinematic artistry and metaphorical themes of Peele’s most recent blockbuster. Then, in their relationships segment, they explore the building blocks of apologies in both personal relationships and the entertainment industry.
Let's Talk About Slave Movies
After Janelle Monae's "Antebellum," scholars and commentators revisited the conversation about whether we need any more slave movies (spoiler alert: it's a pretty short conversation). Malcolm and Micah join that conversation in their entertainment segment. Then they finish off this episode by reminiscing about the few slave movies they've valued the most over the years.
Let's Talk About Church Hurt
Church hurt is a complicated subject with relational and spiritual components to consider. Malcolm and Micah sit down to first define and then discuss church hurt as a relational and spiritual issue. Then, in their relationships segment, they shift their discussion to how to repair after a fight or conflict.
Let's Talk About Our "Callings"
The concept of “calling” has taken on a distinct set of ideas within the Western Christian imagination. Malcolm and Micah sit down to talk about those ideas and the impact they tend to have on the people who unconsciously adopt them. Then, the Morgans finish this week’s episode by filtering their discussion about “calling” through a review of Amazon Prime’s “Invincible.”
Let's Talk About Captain America & Justice
Malcolm and Micah finally sit down to chat about the Falcon and the Winter Soldier: the show’s plot points, symbolic references to moments in history, and exploration of friendship and race. They transition to this week’s “Faith in Context” segment by answering the question, “If this is what the new Captain America thinks about Justice, what can we imagine God thinks about Justice?”
Let's Talk About Adult Friendships
Malcolm and Micah explore the age-old topic of adult friendships in this week’s double relationship segment episode. They begin by answering questions about when friendships were easy and what makes them difficult now. And they end with a discussion on friendships alongside of romantic relationships. Is it okay to have friendships with someone your partner isn’t friends with?
