399: Who Should We Blame? & Helping Girls Change the Narrative with Erin Weidemann




The quarantined gang is back again, with better audio quality this time. (Sorry about last week!) Phil shares an experience with preschool-via-Zoom, then the group discusses two proposed theories for America’s vulnerability to the coronavirus… A) We’re compromised by the anti-science rhetoric of fundamentalist Christianity, or B) We’re all too selfish and individualistic. Skye wonders if the real answer is… C) All of the above? Plus, Phil (yes, Phil!) sits down for a chat with Erin Weidemann, an author, speaker and cancer survivor who has launched Truth Becomes Her - a ministry helping girls resist society’s destructive messages about beauty and worth.

I haven't listened to the whole podcast yet, but I cringed when I heard Phil say he was going to the grocery store two to three times a week. I'm a cashier at a grocery store and I can't tell how frustrating it can be to see the same people come in two to three times a week, sometimes two to three times a day. A lot of times they'll bring the spouse and all four kids just to get out of the house. I know it's hard, especially if you have a large family, like the setup Phil currently has. Stock is low and there are limits on a lot of items. But on the other side of the…
