Who were our heroes? How do heroes affect the way we live our lives? How we feel when we meet our idols in person. How does their passing from this incarnation affect us? (Diana Rigg made Mary cry)

In this podcast, recorded shortly after the US elections, our audacious ones talk about proposition 8, same-sex marriage, truth versus belief, and reawakened activism. We discover that same sex marriage is not about you, it’s about the couple in love. We also discover that God is hard of hearing (that’s why we use a megaphone). And finally, we discover that it all comes back to Babylon 5/Devo/Star Trek.
