The Secular Perspective
TSP 71: Escape from The Church

In a Secular Perspective first, we have a guest host. Chad enlists his friend Brianna to come and talk to us about growing up in an Apostolic Pentecostal Church and how she got out of it. There are no news stories to link to on this one. Just a lot of good conversation to listen to. Enjoy.

* There is a strange underlying sound when we are talking that I could not remove without distorting our voices. Apologies.

After barely surviving a couple of weeks not recording and having to deal with the Republican and Democratic conventions, Chad cannot handle any more depressing news. Amanda sent Chad a link to some fun online games a while back and he used those as a coping mechanism.
