The Words We Use (Show #124)

Today’s discussion starts out with what words we use to define our spirituality and ends up with ritual cannibalism, with stops at exchanging energy, Robert A Heinlein, Babylon 5,  The Walking Dead, and “If everyone can talk to God, what do we need priests for?”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Show #120)

The new Star Wars movie, ‘The Force Awakens’, opened to record breaking crowds.  It’s a mix of old and new, familiar yet fresh.   Here’s our take on it:  what we liked, what we didn’t.  There are spoilers so if haven’t seen the movie yet and intend to, you might want to wait to listen to this podcast.   Either way you’ll enjoy our discuR2D2 and BB8ssions and will undoubtedly share some of our views.   Awaken the Force within you!
These are the droids you’re looking for !

2015 Looking Back (Show #115)

Happy New Year! So to start off the new year, we talk about last year. At least we start talking about it and then we talk about Amazon Prime, Beethoven, and the more memorable “pop culture” things that happened over the course of 2015.

There may or may not be spoilers for Sense8 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The Other Poly (Show #108)

Hey,  we learned something today! We start by talking about the thought-provoking topic of  Polytheism.  What is Polytheism?  How does it work for everybody?  What is Henotheism?  How does that work?  Why are we here?  What is the meaning of life?  Too many questions for one podcast!

(Watch out for Henotheists who worship Loki – could be tricky!)

We do veer off topic onto a sci-fi reading list at one point, which is interesting too.  (So long as you don’t get turned into a Coke machine!) Here are notes on that:

Here’s an interesting book Wendy recommends, which has the Viking gods coming to America, “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman

And here are some sources for “The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul” by Douglas Adams.
