An Examined Life with Jeff Allen: Golf, Guffaws & God with Phil Glasgow

An-Examined-Life-Square-Icon

[display_podcast] From world-renown comedian Jeff Allen:The best experience for my own comedy career came out of the Knoxville Comedy Theater, started up by my good friend Phil Glasgow, where we performed three shows a day (talk about a comedic work out)!  It forced me to learn how to hone my act into a tight, consistent performance.But when I first met Phil, I had no idea that he was a Christian.  I just knew that he had access to some of the greatest golf courses, including Augusta … [Read more...]

Real Stuff My Dad Says 70: “Culture’s Ever-Changing Standards”

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] Between my baseball teams, my brother’s teams, and my dad’s softball teams, my family spent countless hours around the baseball diamond as I grew up. After all those innings, my dad instilled in me an undying love for the game. I even love the most ridiculous minutiae of baseball such as situational defenses, pitch selections, rarely instituted rules and even field dimensions. For instance, on any regulation field (Little League withstanding), exactly 90 feet spans from one ba … [Read more...]

The Big Picture Podcast: There’s A Fire in Our Theater! (While We Watch Christian Videos)

Big_Picture_Thumbnail_Big

[display_podcast] Welcome to the Big Picture Podcast. I’m Joel Fieri and this podcast seeks to begin and hopefully sustain a conversation about current trends, ideas and issues in the Church and greater society. You can’t yell “FIRE” in a theater. We all know that, right? It would cause a panic, people would get trampled, some maybe even killed. You can’t do it. And you wouldn’t think of doing it. And anyways, you’d be in the theater and could get trampled yourself. Someone you’re with and … [Read more...]

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] When I was a boy, my dad was constantly telling me “Son, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” As a young boy, stuck mowing the lawn on Saturday mornings, I never quite got what he meant by that. I mean, if the grass is greener over there, what does that have to do with all this stuff I’m stuck taking care of over here? And, yet, he insisted I’ll understand when I got older. So I got older. As a teenager who constantly was looking at other kids at school … [Read more...]

Real Stuff My Dad Says 68: Think Before You Smoke… or Speak

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] For most people, their retirement date usually is preceded by some sort of countdown – perhaps five years or even six months. For my dad, though, he went on short-term disability for his back surgery, then while recovering from his surgery, his company offered him an early retirement package with a 21-day window to either accept it or possibly be cut loose. Needless to say, being faced with a 21 day decision process compared to a five year plan for retirement changes a man’s pe … [Read more...]

Pam Thumbnail Big

[display_podcast] From Pam Rohr, author of Blended but not Broken - Hope and Encouragement for Blended Families: You know the remarkable, one of a kind story, about Joseph, Mary and Jesus. The angel told Joseph that Mary was pregnant with the child of God and Joseph was to marry her and become the child’s stepfather. Can you imagine? We may struggle with the fact that our step kids are not “perfect” enough but Joseph was probably struggling with the reality that he was not the perfect one; his … [Read more...]
