    You might think a clash between a giant lizard and a hulking monkey is as mindless as it gets, but this movie may actually help you find your place in the cosmos. Join us as we sift through the aftermath of this clash and you may never view giant monsters in the same way again.

    On this episode David, James, and Miles discuss topics like Kaiju in the Bible. What is man’s purpose on Earth? What do we do when God does not behave as we would expect?

One of my Favorite Podcasts

I love Popcorn Theology. These guy really pull back the layers of the entertainment that we all consume. They thoughtfully engage any genre and show how each story relates to the greatest Storyteller of all. Personally I’ve had great joy by following their lead. They’ve helped me grow in appreciation for my faith and for movies in general.

Take a listen and you may never view entertainment the same way again.

Manage Expectations

I dived into this podcast expecting it to be one that explored the various theologies in films. What it actually is seems to be a podcast that picks films apart to see how their theologies align or misalign with Christianity. Nothing wrong with that per se, but not what I was looking for.

What a Pod to Cast!

Hey y’all! Need to show some love from the south! I’ve followed y’all for a really long time... from listening to James H. do his film & theology screenings... to the intro from those sort of making its way to this show which I found some strange way... then listened over time until everyone came together. Think y’all make a perfect team for doing this thing! (So... I would love to hear the entire backstory in one place of how the podcast developed into its present form.) love the show! Y’all keep it up!
