    Episode 83: Crypto Worship, Surviving Religion 101, Outer Banks, and an Announcement

    People like NFTs. People also think they are dumb because cryptocurrency is ephemeral and not real. Hans and Evan discuss fandom around digital currency (among other things) and what that teaches us about ourselves and God. Then Evan reviews a book geared at Christian students that enroll in religion classes at secular universities and the challenges that come with them.  Then Evan discusses "The Outer Banks" on Netflix.

    Finally, an announcement for the YNS faithful.

    Episode 79: Steal a Sermon, Steal Their Stories, Steal Every Trope

    Episode 79: Steal a Sermon, Steal Their Stories, Steal Every Trope

    Welcome to the first of two episodes about stealing (or cheating, or stretching truth). Pastor plagiarism has made its way into the limelight. The world tries to tell better stories, but Jesus has the best. Finally, The Tomorrow War basically every sci-fi movie in a blender.

    Note: this podcast mentioned Lecrae suing Katy Perry. This statement gets at least one pinocchio. Lecrae was named on a lawsuit against her for a song he was featured on with Flame. However, Lecrae dropped his name from the suit. Source: https://www.christianitytoday.com/news/2019/july/katy-perry-dark-horse-lawsuit-beat-stealing-chh-flame.html

Interesting and informative

Evan and Hans deliver interesting, high-quality content each week. They do a nice job of mixing esoteric topics with fun and accessible ones. Plus, there’s usually a connection to Christianity.
