Part 3 of 3 of a discussion with Retired Presbyterian Minister Tom Gibbons. We finish our discussion on mega churches. Then transition into how a church operates financially; how the church uses its revenue to help its members and the community. How "much is too much" with money and losing a church's focus on its mission and faith. Unpleasant parishioners.  And then we wrap up the episode by discussing how Tom and the church personally impacted me and my family when I was young.

This episode is way more fun than it sounds. Former Funeral Director Samantha Watt sits down to discuss her time in the funeral industry. Death.. Traditions. Tragedy. Why does someone become a funeral director? Who does the makeup for a viewing? What's it like driving a hearse? Misconceptions. And plenty more. We then talk about Samantha's savant-like ability to turn a childhood toy, the Etch A Sketch, into works of art, and turning that artistic gift into profit without killing your passion.Find Samantha's Etch A Sketch creations on her Instagram: @EllieBearProductionsFacebook: www.facebook.com/ElliebearproductionsSound Editing: Brittney Richardsonbrrproductionscctx@gmail.comTheme Song Produced By: Reggie CobyTwitter: @mrc0byInstagram: mrc0byHave recommendations for a future guest or show topic?

Do you have that one friend who always makes politically charged posts? Do they always lead to a shitstorm of rage comments and insults of "cuck," "libtard," and "Dumbocrat?" Andrew Landrum is that friend for me. We've been arguing about politics for years. Finally, I had enough arguing and asked Andy to come on the podcast and let me try to understand what makes him tick. Does he really enjoy simply pushing people's buttons ("triggering the libs"), or is there more to it? We sit down and I try to get to the bottom of it as civilly as possible.Sound Editing: Brittney Richardsonbrrproductionscctx@gmail.comTheme Song Produced By: Reggie CobyTwitter: @mrc0byInstagram: mrc0byHave recommendations for a future guest or show topic?
