    TSP217: We're Back: A Covid Story (Part 2)

    I also could have called this: "What I Did During My Yearly Quarantine" or "Covid-stravaganza". Basically, after almost a year of not recording due to quarantines and being super busy with work, your hosts, Chad and Amanda, are finally back together to start recording about the state of the world.
    Since we have been away so long and we are sure everyone is tired of hearing about the chaos that is the state of the USA, we talked briefly about it but really more dove into the things that we have been up to in the past year.
    I want to thank everyone that has stayed subscribed long enough to get a notification that we have a new episode up. We tend to go on quite a bit here. Over two hours actually so I split our conversation up into 2 parts.
    For new listeners: This is not our typical format, but feel free to listen to help get to know us a little better.

    In this episode, we focus on Amish culture and how it has led to some pretty disastrous things such as sexual abuse and genetic disorders.

    TSP214: Mental Breakdown in a Meijer

    TSP214: Mental Breakdown in a Meijer

    This week we discuss mental health issues in America and how people are dealt with when they have a breakdown. We also find a church that tells it older members to stay away to attract younger members. And we end with a newly developing case of a woman and her missing kids and potential ties to a new mysterious cult.

    TSP213: Here's Some Content

    Picture this: Chad has worked 24 hour hours in 2 days and is exhausted, has a sick kid and is cleaning the house and doing laundry. Amanda shows up hours earlier than expected with no laptop no real stories to specifically talk about, but is in a rush to get something recorded and just wants to vent about the week and only has 30 minutes to do so. The following is what resulted from the mayhem.

Secular v. Celestial

This podcast is great for those who may or may not have a vast knowledge in science or world religions but would still like to get involved in the debate.

Too Much Chit-Chat

I started listening for the first time to episode 98, Expanding on Science vs Religion. 15 minutes into the episode, they're barely getting to anything remotely related to a topic because they spent those minutes talking about moving, mattresses, and air conditioners. And, once they started on a topic, about spanking in a Dallas school, they did so ever so slowly. That's where I stopped listening. I don't care about the hosts' personal trials and tribulations. If I want to know about that, I can talk to a neighbor. I turned to this podcast to listen to perspectives on secularism, not the down-sides to owning a pillow-top mattress. Honestly, I expect a podcast to be on-point and focused. I don't have time to listen to anything that rambles about personal lives.

Obsessive Viewer Podcasts ,

Honest, insightful discussions on faith and logic.

This is a great podcast that puts faith and spirituality under the microscope.
