Hacker’s Survival Guide, Charleston’s Hopeful Side, Obama’s Speech Divides (CultureCast)

anonymousCultureCast cohost Christian Piatt is a geek when it comes to tech stuff. From gadgets to all things virtual, he’ll talk himself some ones and zeroes until the Minecraft cows come home. This week, our guest is professional hacker Mike Collins, who explains everything from Cyberterrorism to Silk Road, the Dark Web and why your car/phone/blender(?) are your worst enemies. It’s all we could do to get Christian to stop asking questions, but if you’re a fellow tech-head, you’ll be amazed by what you don’t know about the devices and culture all around you.

The CultureCast crew also tackle the recent shootings at Emanuel Church in Charleston, the amazing Grace the victims have shown the shooter, and the Amazing Grace President Obama sang as part of his address to the walking wounded in one of the hardest-hit epicenters of recent outbursts of such violent racism.

But fear not, my fellow casters. The intrepid trio faithfully reverts to trivial nonsense and yummy pop culture tidbits. So whip out that napkin, tuck it in your shirt and dive into this most recent serving of Homebrewed CultureCast deliciousness.

*Catch the CultureCast LIVE first July 10th at Wild Goose Festival in Hot Springs, North Carolina. We’ll be joined by Lisa Gungor, Micky ScottBey Jones, Romal Tune, Leroy Barber, Tony Kriz and Josh Linton.

**Then on July 20th and 21st in Columbus, MO, we’ll be doing two joint Homebrewed Christianity & CultureCast shows with our good friend, Tripp Fuller. Guests will include Disciples of Christ General Minister and President Sharon Watkins, Theologian, Author and Biblical Scholar Rick Lowery, the band Populis, singer/songwriter Andra Moran and others to be announced. The 20th show is SOLD OUT, but tickets for the 21st are still available at the moment. Get more info about those shows HERE.

***We’re also stoked that THE SHACK’s Wm. Paul Young will be our in-person featured guest for the next LIVE Homebrewed CultureCast in Portland, August 13th. Come hear the story of how a project that began as a Christmas gift for family ended up selling 20 Million copies.
