The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 101: Beards, Comedian Zan & Bob Kilpatrick

[display_podcast] My oldest son recently began growing a bit of facial hair. Now, as most men know, the first couple years of beard growth consist mainly of “practice beards”.

You actually get rid of them about as fast as you cover up primer when painting a living room wall. Yet, for many men, facial hair is still very important to them. It’s hard to explain why.

Confessions Of A Closet Christian 41: Why Do We Censor God?

[display_podcast] When I hear the word “censor,” I think of the bleep sound I hear when someone swears on live TV.  Censoring serves its purposes. When I think about God, in my head – He’s the most important thing in my life.  But I’d rather only eat Fiber One cereal for a month than say that out loud. When it comes to God, I play the censor, I’m my own bleep button.
