Christian Marketing, Rob Bell & Emergent Bible Skills(?!) (#HBCultureCast)

This week’s guest is Dave Palmer, a marketing expert at Dunk Tank Marketing, to talk about The Great American Bible Challenge (which is entering its second season on the Game Show Network), and why progressives are reluctant to appear on a show requiring Bible knowledge. He also discusses the challenge of marketing to Christians overall.

In the Echo Chamber, Christian and Jordan discuss Rob Bell’s announcement that he’s okay with gay marriage, which should come as no surprise. Later, they talk about the sordid Steubenville rape case, which turns into a debate over the definition of rape.

Later, Jordan recommends Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods, and Christian is digging the Netflix original series, House of Cards. This turns into a discussion about the Golden Age of Television, which is one of Jordan’s favorite topics.
