Two moderately-informed pastors try and make sense of church, media, and culture.
The Ultimate Episode - A YNS Retrospective
Hans and Evan say farewell to all the wonderful listeners of You Never Studied on this ultimate (final) episode of the show.
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 82: Tearing Down Evangelical High Places, The Power of Moments, and Black Widow vs Loki
Hans and Evan attempt to understand the continual tumult in celebrity pastor culture, Hans reviews a book on creating powerful moments, and it's time for another MCU roundup, giving their reviews on both Black Widow & Loki (spoilers!).
Episode 081: Pastor and Plebe Takeover Pt. 2
With Evan out, Hans and Dale get together to talk about eldering. Dale is in an elder process at his church and Hans tries and talk him out of it (not really). Then Dale shares a story about a time that he was walking around with friends and broke a bone.
Episode 80: Speedrunners vs. Doctors, Confident Christians, and Video Game Sitcoms
Why are videogamers better at finding cheaters than physicians? What is the world coming to and how do Christians respond? What is this show about that Evan's watching (Hans doesn't know)? Thanks for joining us for this episode!
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.
