    Vicky is joined by comedians Jason Salmon and Allan Fuks. One strongly believes he had his prayers answered, and one strongly believes he didn't. She also reads Facebook posts from listeners about their experience with prayer. The panel talks about porn, strict upbringings, sex shaming, back injuries, EMDR, Texas football, living in sin, The AVN awards, suicide, loss, hopelessness and they pose some tough questions:
    Is there a God? Is God listening? Is God always right? Does any of it matter? Is life a clusterf*ck?
