Here I Stand: A Lutheran Mixtape

As mentioned in our recent podcast episode recounting our experiences with the "Luther 500" event, we heard Andy Pokel perform a few songs from his album "Here I Stand: A Lutheran Mixtape." The album takes a "Hamilton-style" spin on Martin Luther and the events of his life, and is pretty excellent.
