We kick off episode 21 by sharing about our failures and victories over the last couple of weeks, along with a recap of our appearance on the Eric Zane Show Podcast. Then, we move into a fun segment about millennials, in which we did our best to give this generation the most fair and balanced treatment.  Our news segment was broken into 3 categories - good, bad, and ugly. That ugly story was a doozy. You'll have to listen for yourself! We had some slight difference in opinion about a church that offers "heavy metal" services and whether or not it was appropriate to offer noon services to those who may have had too much to drink the night before. To wrap things up, we each shared about one personal goal we were committing to between episodes. Stay tuned to find out how those go for us. Thank you so much for listening to us!

He reveals something to Ben that a lot of people don't know about him. Ben also talks about somethings in his childhood/early adulthood that changed the man he is today.
Join us for some deep conversations about our legacy and atheist churches. Get your AMEN's ready as we discuss an article about being a recovering hypocrite. Laugh along as Jason shares about how hard it is for him to stop interrupting. Be encouraged as we share the story about a sanitation worker mentored by ex-cons who went on to graduate from college thanks to his employer, and even spoke at his graduation. Oh, and there's a certain level of awkwardness as we play a new game called Toast or Roast. Ben had to do a roast of his boss, and a toast to a slow fast food worker.

Happy New Year! I hope you all are enjoying the holidays with friends and family. I(Jason) had an amazing Christmas and Ben and I are excited for 2019. We recorded this episode a few weeks ago but are just releasing it now. This episode doesn't follow our normal format, but a lighthearted but meaningful conversation about God, the church, and dealing with the hurts/pains/frustrations with the church. Ben had made a connection on Facebook with David Tisma. David was a former pastor at 2 churches and has a lot of insight on religion and the current state of the church today. He also records his own podcast, but is currently on a hiatus. You can check it out here, An Open Letter. Thank you so much for listening to us! We appreciate each and every one of you.

**Long Episode warning** We had a our first guest in studio - Tyler Baum! Tyler is a very smart young man and brought lots of great insight to the show. Oh, did I mention he is our first super fan? He came up with the name of "Threadie."  Quick recap of things we talked about: Ben's son made a new friend after Ben encouraged him to hang out with "good kids." Jason puked in the bushes while waiting for the kids to get on the bus. Tyler enjoying the holidays with the family. Ben lost his patience with daughter (again.) Jason lacking an "attitude of gratitude" Tyler botched wife's b-day Lauren Daigle & a lack of discernment among American Christians: Lauren received some hate for being on the Ellen show and answering a question about gay people.

Ben and Jason share about how they are learning how to respect each others’ space in their friendship -- a friendship that began in early 2018.

We discuss the impact that absent fathers have on their families and talk about how our dads’ parenting styles impacted us. We also took into consideration what happened in our dads’ lives that caused them to parent the way they did -- or didn’t. We close out by sharing some “dad tips” that will hopefully inspire you to be a better dad (or mom!) Here are some of the items we discussed: Children’s well-being goes hand in hand with Dad’s mental health The importance of roughhousing with your kids
