Podcast #042 - Blue Christmas II: Home for the Holidays

"Home for the Holidays"

Alan and Em revisit the concept of Blue Christmas, which they covered last year on Episode 35. These are services that allow churches to make space for people who aren't quite ready to celebrate the season. But given the way that 2020 went, we're pretty sure that EVERYONE is dealing with loss, discouragement, and depression this year. 

We give our personal updates, talk about our 2020 holiday thoughts, and then share some mostly (but not altogether) happy Christmas memories.

Merry Christmas, seasons greetings, happy holidays, and we wish all out listeners a blessed and joyous
2021.

Podcast #041 - Harry Whodunit #3!


"Harry Whodunit: The Mystery of the Nine Samsons"

Enjoy your Covid lockdown 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 then in Episode 36, we played a digitized version of the other set we own.   

As we discussed last episode, creator Terry Scott Taylor recently put his entire audio archives up for sale, including the entire (4 adventures) Harry Whodunit collection! We were very excited to see that, and bought the collection.

And here is the third adventure we've posted, although it was the first one produced. And so, we proudly present "The Mystery of the Nine Samsons!"
