Drunk Ex-Pastors

We begin this episode with a voice mail from a congratulatory caller, after which we hear from another listener with some interesting theories about coffee and capitalism. We discuss the kinds of drugs good parents take, and then turn our attention to the Netflix docuseries, “The Movies that Made Us,” spring-boarding into a discussion of our favorite decades for movies, music, and TV. Biebers involve account numbers and digital stuff trying to be analog.

We begin this episode of DXP by introducing a debt collector who absolutely needs his own reality show. We hear from a caller with questions about the “Great Resignation,” the realization on the part of so many that the pre-COVID rat race has lost most of its appeal (she also wanted us to talk about softcore Bible porn). We hear an interesting take from a listener concerning the idea that there actually are no men’s sports teams, and then share biebers about bathrooms.

This episode of DXP boasts perhaps the funniest and most poignant first half we have ever forgotten to record. But the second half (which is now the whole thing) was also pretty good. We discuss the death of a high school friend from COVID and whether Americans are beginning to soften their anti-vax position (shockingly, the positive one of us thinks yes, the other one remains unconvinced). We briefly talk about climate change and performative activism, and then share biebers involving crosswalks and bad seventeenth-century grammar.

In this episode of DXP (after a brief update about the Well & Table’s progress) we explore the age-old question of whether we’d find Rachel McAdams attractive if we met her in her sixties (short answer, it’s complicated but probably). We share the recipe for the craft cocktail that became the Drunk Ex-Pastor, and then discuss the controversy surrounding the Women’s National Soccer Team’s recent Olympic loss. Biebers involve left-hand turn lanes and cell phone battery levels.
