Podcast #036 - Harry Whodunit #2!

"Harry Whodunit: The Mystery of the Spitball Ghost"

Start the New Year right with this Harry Whodunit mystery audio adventure!

Back in Episode 31, we mentioned Harry Whodunit as one of our favorite little-known bits of Evangelical pop culture. And in Episode 32, we played a digitized version of one of the two cassette sets we own.

And here is the second (and last) one ... with maybe not the best results in digitization from a 20+ year old audio cassette ... we present "The Mystery of the Spitball Ghost."

Photos of the cards that came with the cassette can be found here.

Podcast #035 - Blue Christmas 2019

"Blue Christmas"

Alan and Em are not discussing the Elvis song in this episode. Instead, they are talking about the growing trend of "Blue Christmas" services, in which churches make space for people who aren't quite ready to celebrate the season, but are instead dealing with loss, grief, discouragement, and the general stresses of modern life.

Merry Christmas, seasons greetings, happy holidays, and we wish all out listeners a blessed 2020.
