In a first for the ‘cast, we welcome in a special guest, our friend Brent. We talk about new years resolutions, epic poetry goals, and the importance of changing people’s hearts. And David reads a liturgical poem about weeping. For reals.
And we compare Neil Stephenson to Wendell Barry.
In this episode we talk about black and white movies that everyone should see and David wears an ugly Christmas sweater. We also talk about how we should measure success in the church (should we?) and the apocalyptic fiction genre. And Amanda’s forthcoming Napoleon Dynamite experience.
