The Boys are back and ready to discuss New Year’s resolutions; the growing crisis around the last two presidents and confidential papers; the death of Pope Benedict and some insights from the Minor Prophets.
The Zippy Crew wraps up the year with time spent on things Christmasy, advancements in AI technology, one more look at politics for the year, musings on the 2023 Cardinals season and a look at the intersection of grace and works in the Bible.
The boys revisit a number of topics from the last few episodes, including baseball, the midterm elections and Taylor Swift’s Midnights (looking at the 3 a.m. edition). They also look at the “Respect for Marriage Act” and find encouragement in Romans 14.
The boys give their take on Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, Taylor Swift’s new album (Midnights) and the midterm elections that take place tomorrow. Plus, encouragement from Romans 13 on how we relate to our politicians, even those we aren’t so sure of.
The Zippy Crew tackles marijuana policy (and its implication as Christians) and then reflects on the end of the careers of several notable athletes (Roger Federer, Yadier Molina and Albert Pujols). It all wraps up with scriptural encouragement from Romans 11-12.
Two ruckuses that have occupied our society the past couple of weeks have gotten me thinking a lot about truth. One came from the Left and one from the Right. One was Liz Cheney’s loss, one student loan debt forgiveness.
The Boys are back with talk of the continued political tensions around the Russo-Ukrainian War, the coming SCOTUS decisions, violent political rhetoric in the coming midterm elections, Shakespeare and hope in Psalm 136.
Where did everybody’s favorite Snailcast go in May? The boys talk about that and some of the big news that happened during the last month, including the Supreme Court leak, the tragic Uvalde mass shooting and the political winds ahead of this year’s mid-term elections.
Joe Manchin and Krystin Sinema are due a heap of gratitude by all of us. Personally, I prefer a government that is stable and seeks to represent the whole of the country and not a specific subset and it is those two, and not figures I’d probably have been more inclined to elect, that are holding to the esoteric parliamentary rule — the filibuster — that offers us such stability.
We’re in a mess. The country is in the weakest place it’s been in a very long time. If what I suspect and fear comes to pass, it could soon be far worse.
