Episode 395: The End of the World is Nigh!




No, we’re not talking about the global coronavirus pandemic. Phil is worried about a record-breaking locust swarm, an army of 100,000 Chinese ducks, and a new line of “self-care” Barbies complete with a meditation app—because America isn’t self-focused enough. Also this week, screen use and a decline in exposure to sunshine are elongating human eyeballs. The Southern Baptists appear determined to eliminate anyone respected by outsiders from their ranks. Christian updates us on her WWII documentary project, and why does a French tire company rank restaurants.

Life is crazy, and I'm behind on listening, but seriously, I haven't laughed this much all week. Thank you all so much.

Hi Jennifer - It's tough not to cover LGBT stories, since they are affecting the church so much right now. But we definitely try not to focus on any one issue too much.

I am so relieved that you were able to make it through an entire podcast without mentioning homosexuality. I had decided to delete you from my podcast list if I heard it mentioned again. I'm sick of it.

You are hilarious! So I enjoy that and church history. I love the stories about animal studies, too. I often consider becoming a patron, but lately you have sounded like a broken record on homosexuality. THANK YOU for giving it a break!

I enjoyed the news about the militant ducks.... but a little disappointed that Phil made no comment about the ducks Goose Stepping.... (or the amount of "droppings" that will be produced by eating 200 locusts a day)
