    Best of 2022

    Best of 2022

    At the start of a new year, we’re looking back at the old one and remembering our fondest moments.  2022 saw a lot happen at Yass, Jesus!  We became an independently produced pod (!!!) we kissed in a sinner’s jail, we found our chosen family (led by ferocious Mama Bears), we traveled to the Holy Land, and we got honest about topics that still plague the LGBTQIA+ community.

    Yass, Jesus! is hosted by Danny Franzese and Azariah Southworth. Our producers are Ross Murray and Meredith Paulley. Sound, music, and post-production by Chris Heckman.

Support this podcast!

Joy of Living Tigger's-tail bounds in my heart from the existence of individuals such as this. Please give a listen & support if you know how Loving & Positive-minded "Queer" folk can be, regardless of who shines in Thee🦋✌🏼🦋!

Ignoring the Bible

Ignoring what the Bible plainly states. We must examine our lives and strive to meet Gods requirements. Only a fool will pick and chose which verses they believe. If God is Truly God, almighty creator, he makes the rules whether you like them or not. Manipulating his word to fit your narrative is beyond insane. Would these ppl play a Major League Baseball game and claim the rules don’t apply to them?
