The Secular Perspective

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.

To celebrate our 100th episode we are all together including Matt who helped us get the show started back in the day. We all picked our top songs to be played at our own funerals. We play parts and discuss why we like them. This is a pretty long episode but an important one to me personally so I hope you all enjoy.

*We clearly do not own the rights to any of this music. All rights belong to their respective labels, blah, blah blah.
