In a you pick one I pick one scenario, Chad talks about his pretend arch nemesis, Ken Ham and his sinking Ark Encounter. Amanda speaks about a Baby from the UK named Charlie Gard. Chad is a little loopy in this one as he has just given blood for the first time and hasn't fully recuperated yet at the time of recording.

Amanda brings up the story of Jahi McMath. Be warned, this gets pretty morbid so be aware going in. A pharmacist from Walgreens is accused of sexual discrimination for not filling a prescription. We also spend a little time catching up with Josh Duggar.

Our main topic of discussion is a couple of stories that have popped up recently for us that both involved child marriage that actually happens in the USA. Plus we talk about the graduation walkout on Mike Pence and how really homophobic people are usually gay themselves.
