Episode 43 - WAR (ROOM): What is it Good For?
This week Zac and Michael are joined by Kelsey Lahr to mock the 2015 film WAR ROOM, a movie about rich people hiding in closets and pretending they're at war. Somehow, it gets even weirder when foot odor rears its smelly, ubiquitous head. There's Double Dutch!
Episode 42 - Christian Grooming for Men
This week Zac and Michael check in our sickly president--who appears to taking his 'roid rage on the road. Then they dive into the wacky world of Christian hardcore frontman, John Cooper and his leather scented pomades. Then finally, they dig into the creepy and corrupt life of Ravi Zacharias--a man who's mercifully deader with each passing day!
Episode 41 - The Trump Virus
This week Zac and Michael discuss the event of the season, our ongoing pandemic making a fashionably late arrival at the White House! What happens now that Trump and all his toadies have gotten the virus? Is there still hope of intubation? Then, they look into some Christian responses to our dear leader's illness--including one that isn't even terrible!
Episode 40 - Oh Come, All Ye Antifa
This week, Zac and Michael desperately try to claw their way back to sanity after listening to two old men yell about who hates socialism more for 90 minutes, then dive into an article from the Institute of Christian Socialism about fascism, the historical role of the church in abetting white supremacy, and how to build a church that fascists fear. Check out Adam Joyce's great article: https://christiansocialism.com/christianity-anti-fascism-trump-2020/
Episode 39 -The Notorious RIP
This week Zac and Michael pour a little liquor out for the demise of Supreme Court Justice... Sandra Day O'Connor! We wish her well on her final journey to the pearly gates of Little St. James. In other news, we check back in on the Falwells--America's sloppiest family since the Simpsons!
Episode 38 - 2002's Best Sci Fi Fundamentalist Time Travel Movie: Time Changer
Zac and Michael take a trip back to 1890, where seminary professor and old white dude Russell Carlisle is trying to get his book endorsed by some other old white dudes. His quest will take him to the distant future of 2002, where he discovers just how godless and terrible things have become. Discover the dangers of FM Radio headphones, thrift store mannequins, and hot dog stealing 8 year olds. Learn the dark secret of Church Movie Night. Will Russell ever get his endorsement? Will that really be the entire plot of a feature film? There are only two ways to find out.

One of my favorite podcasts
Fantastic podcast dissecting all the terrible ideologies, movements, people, and media of right-wing Christianity.
My new favorite podcast
Michael and Zach are incredible. Funny as heck and very informed. This is exactly what I needed right now.
I would pay for that premium content of Michael going episode by episode through Adventures in Odyssey because I too was obsessed with it and still sort of am.
