Rev. Amy Piatt on Sexuality, Beer and Ministry (Homebrewed CultureCast)

Although Jordan Green and Christian Piatt have had lots of authors on the show so far, they haven’t had many ordained ministers doing actual work in a church.They’ve also been called to the carpet for having too many dudes on the air.

And then it occurred to them: Christian’s wife, Amy Piatt, was right there in the next room!

After some coaxing and promises by Christian to attend various holiday parties, she agreed to come on the show and talk about what it’s like being female ordained clergy in the 21st century. They also talked about the Piatt’s recent “Beer and Hymns” event at their downtown Portland church, why some guys can’t seem to get over seeing boobs behind a pulpit and whether Kimbo Slice got a fair shake in his bid as an MMA fighter.

Okay, to be fair, this last part was really just Jordan and Christian derailing the conversation.

The sophomoric duo also cover some music and TV recommendations, discuss the recent viral story about Larry DePrimo a policeman buying a guy named Jeffrey Hillman on the street some shoes and what the right response is to someone we think is in need.

And then someone made a fart joke or something and they both forgot what they were talking about. Typical.
