"You have ALS" - Dave was shocked and adjusted upon hearing this diagnosis, but the events earlier in the decade served as his true "reboot".  After 35+ years as an evangelical minister, he deconstructed and became an atheist.  This wasn't the easy path, yet he learned there were others like him through "The Clergy Project", an organization who help other religious leaders who no longer believe in the supernatural, many of whom are harboring that secret.He's choosing to "Die Out Loud" and "Carpe The F***'in' Diem."  You'll hear a generous man making the most of the time he has left.Thank you to listeners Jim Dells and Matt MacKellar for your questions, Carter Warden of Johnson City TN for your song, and Danny Pellerito for our show's theme music.
