TSP 76: Are We Hopeless?

Tiny and Chad speak of a few news stories but also discuss an article saying that atheism is hopeless and meaningless. Of course we disagree with the author.

TSP 75: Has no Witty Title

Chad and Amanda discuss a variety of topics. Just listen and enjoy. It's Also Talk like a Pirate Day, which we pretty quickly forget about.

* For some reason there is an odd sound to the recording that I could not quite get removed. I apologize if it bugs you as much as it bugs me.

TSP74: Throw Out Those Burkini's

TSP 74: Throw out those Burkini's

France has banned burkini's and we kind of have some issues with it. A woman was refused from a Catholic hospital because of an IUD. We talk about so much more than would fit here.

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.
