"Redefining Religion" should be the title for this one. Passion against it, yet wants to create his own - pursuing his greatest fear and turning it into a malleable 'end' goal. Very interesting.

Love your podcast, but do all your promotions at the beginning of your podcast like Joe Rogan. Doing it this way we stay listening and being annoyed. Just a thought. Again thank you for your podcast.
