Podcast #008 - The Grab Bag

"A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That"

In this grab-bag of an episode, we explore the connections between the 4th century churchman Athanasius and new Broadway star Alexander Hamilton. And we ask the important question: whose severed limb was that anyway? We also point out a couple of Christian comedians who are actually funny. And we reply to the lovely things that our lovely listeners have said to us recently.

New Music From One Of Our Faves!

Cornerstone 2012 was festival of musical discovery. That sounds strange, because it was the last year for that festival. Yet we found a range of wonderful artists there, many of whom we have followed since. 

One of those was the Canadian singer Lauren Mann, who played at that festival with her band, The Fairly Odd Folk. We are big fans of her 2012 release "Over Land and Sea." Lauren has a new solo album, Dearestly. The new album is available in various forms, including a pay-what-you-want digital download.

For a preview of the new album, check out this music video from the first single, "Brave Face."

John Crist: "How Christian Music is Made"

We posted a John Crist video a month or so ago. Well, he's put out another excellent video, this one about how to have a successful song on Christian radio. More videos and other information can be found at Crist's website. 

"A, D & G. It's the holy trinity of Christian music."
