Brandi is in Los Angeles! So they two are able to record together outdoors. You will hear cars drive by and kids screaming in the background. Today they discuss what Brandi did in L.A., Joe talks about Skid Row and what hotel not to stay at in Downtown L.A., then Joe gives a very strange description of Darren Aronofsky's new film mother!, and then they move into the Ice Breaker where they discuss their favorite movies to watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Finally they get into the third chapter of Heart of Christianity by Marcus Borg where they discuss how the Bible should be interpreted. All this and very little else in this week's episode.

Joe and Brandi actually start the episode by accident this week by talk about stand up comedy. What makes a good stand up, can anyone be a stand up and how both Brandi and Joe should have been stand ups. That's just in the intro. In the Fellowship the two talk about Jim Carrey's crazy red carpet interview and talk about whether us not mattering is actually good news. Then in the Ice Breaker they discuss what qualities in a partner would be a total turn off. Finally in the Falafeling they discuss the second chapter of Marcus Borg's book The Heart of Christianity and talk about faith, how we should view the Bible, whether God actually wants our total devotion, and of course they end by discussing whether an infinate being that we can't even understand or grasp can fit into a tiny box that we totally understand. All this and very little else in this week's episode.

An introduction to Joe's new podcast The Commentarians. Joe talks about what the show is, how it'll work. when it begins and who it's for. Listen and become a Commentarian.
Joe and Brandi set a record for the most cuss words bleeped in a single episode! Topics discussed are can a Christian Mystic not be progressive, the president rolling back DACA (Mother F***ing, piece of s***, a**hole. F*** that a**hole piece of s***!), how Clinton's election loss was her fault and the DNC's fault and no one else's, how voting for the lesser of two evils is immoral disgusting and unChrist-like, The Nashville Statement, and Joel Olsteen. Then in the Ice Breaker they discuss what they'd like to devote more time too, and finally they get into the main discussion about chapter 1 of The Heart of Christianity by Marcus Borg where they discuss how Joe finds some progressive Christians very intolerant towards all evangelicals, what bridges the gap between Evangelical Christians and Progressive Christians, and then they get into a crazy talk about a Janga Puzzle analogy. All this and very little else in this week's episode.

Outro: The Parting Glass by The Pogues
Brandi's relationship became Facebook official this week! It's not a big deal, they've been official for a while outside of Facebook, but this starts them off on a conversation about when to make relationships FB official, as well as terrible relationships Brandi has been in, and what a giant a-hole Joe used to be. Then in the Fellowship Joe talks about potato chips hang overs and Brandi talks about the new Brand New record which she loves. Then in the Ice Breaker Joe discusses what song would be his anthem while Brandi tells us how much she hates cellphones in class. And of course in the Falafeling Joe and Brandi give a short introduction to the book they will be doing for the next several weeks The Heart of Christianity by Marcus Borg. All this and very little else in this week's episode.
