Episode 49 – Bring in the Runaway and the Misfit

GSP 49 final IFIn this episode – Mike earns that press pass badge he got by talking about the Steampunk World’s Fair 2013 event. We give an update about the progress on “Project Awesome.”  We game with Don’t Starve and Archipelago.  We talk about the “mechanics” of the faith and why we love bringing people to the table. And for a change of pace – we’re gonna share some music.  Mike got permission to play some music from a band he met at the World’s Fair.  Be sure to listen to the end and check out there stuff.

And now — it’s time for the link dump!

Insomniac Folklore – An amazing band with a style that’s a mix of folk and tent revival. They are really talented, fun folks who are out there bringing God’s message to places that haven’t heard it through music.

Episode 48 – THEME WEEK – Super Heroes

It’s THEME WEEK! This is the first of what we’re sure will be a reoccurring event wherein several geek-Christian podcasts floating about the interwebs get together to talk about a single theme from our various perspectives.

The podcasts in question are:

In our particular episode – we talk about how heroes can be boring if they’re TOO super, why super hero stories fascinate us, and explore the connected imagery of super hero origin stories and coming to faith in Christ. Mike MAY have pointed out similarities to receiving the Holy Spirit upon faith with receiving a Green Lantern Corp ring . . . that’s just the kind of stuff we bring to the table.

Enjoy – and be sure to check out the other podcasts as well.
