[display_podcast] Lawyers always say, “Don’t ever ask a question you don’t already know the answer to.” But I’m no lawyer. So, I should have consulted one when I recently asked my wife why she doesn’t listen to my podcast. Her answer? I’ve never had any women on. So, in the interest of growing my audience by at least one very important person – my bride – I have a dear friend as my special guest this week. Tori Taff and I have been friends for years, which I don’t understand how she finds the … [Read more...]

An-Examined-Life-Square-Icon

[display_podcast] I met this week’s guest a few months back at the Ravi Zacharias Summer Institute for Apologetics. He’s a phenomenally talented singer / songwriter out of Texas, yet now he’s in the middle of earning his Masters Degree in Religious Studies and Apologetics, with aims toward Law School. Needless to say, he’s a lot more smarter than me. And in addition to all this, he’s a rancher who works at a rehab center, wrangling addicts like me while integrating philosophy with psycholog … [Read more...]
