  • Episode 132 – Nous Sommes Charlie

    150107120309-charlie-hebdo-620x348This week we talked about the shocking massacre at the Charlie Hebdo offices in France. We explore a lot of different reactions to the situation, some more understandable than others.  Is Islam somehow more dangerous than other religions?  And should satire have limitations?  We try – and mostly fail – to make sense of a senseless act.

    Note: We had a technical glitch and recorded this episode with the wrong microphone.  The sound is a little bit tinny.  Sorry for the problem!

  • Episode 14 – Helllllllo Islam!

    In this week’s episode, we talk with our friend Porter about recent protests in the Middle East.  We spend a lot of time talking about Islam – the first show in which we’ve spent a lot of time talking about that particular faith. We talk about the idea of wanting to kill someone in the name of what amounts to an imaginary friend and we get pretty riled up about it.  Then Porter answers our five questions and when he gets to his sandwich, we get riled up about that too.  Because who doesn’t get riled up about BACON?  Except Nick, of course, because he can’t eat bacon.  Oh well…more for the rest of us.
