Podcast #223: Relationships, Consciousness, and the Human Brain

10/14/2018
More
In episode #223 of DXP we are asked by a caller about whether we are comfortable calling one another out on our annoying issues (which is silly, because we’re both totally normal, well-adjusted people). After discussing relationships a bit we are asked about how comfortable we are with discussing sexual assault with out daughters. We then turn our discussion to the issue of consciousness and the human brain, which leads into all kinds of deep mystical crap. Biebers involve salsa and Internet...

Podcast #222: College, Kavanaugh, and Political Nihilism

10/8/2018
More
DXP #222 begins with our first ever attempt to call someone back because their voicemail was so confusing (the conversation that ensued was just a tad awkward). We discuss whether it’s still worthwhile to send kids to college, and take another call from a listener who can teach the rest of you a thing or two about using your allotted voicemail time efficiently. We then lament the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, disagreeing slightly over just how nihilistic and hopeless we should let...

Podcast #221: Faustian Bargains and Eternal FOMO

10/1/2018
More
DXP #221 begins with a call from our (presumably) only Trump-voting listener, after which we discuss the new Netflix series, The First. We hear from our very first patron, and then discuss how much money we would bargain our souls for (unsurprisingly, Jason’s is on sale for quite cheap). After the break we discuss the Kavanaugh nomination (but since this episode was recorded a week ago our remarks will be somewhat outdated since news travels so fast these days). But either way, the dude is...

Podcast #220: The Republican Brain

9/23/2018
More
DXP #220 begins with a solemn voicemail from one of our most beloved characters. We then find ourselves getting rebuked for ignoring a listener’s question last week and talking about something else instead (which we are wont to do). We discuss the issue of body shaming and whether it’s wrong when Trump is the target (we’re cool with it), after which we address another listener’s question about whether he is spiritual or religious. We end the show discussing Chris Mooney’s book “The...

Podcast #219: The One About Nothing

9/16/2018
More
DXP #219 represents what happens when we don’t have a whole lot of topics to address and instead just shoot the shit for a couple hours. We begin the show with a voicemail from a real-life Trump voter, which leads to a discussion of the recent Manafort plea and a foray into the world of FoxNews. Jason tells a story about his new job, and we get some marketing tips from another listener. Biebers involve hotel feng shui and afterschool pick-up lines.

Podcast #218: Nike, Kaepernick, and Changing our Minds

9/10/2018
More
Episode #218 begins with a new and potentially hilarious job prospect for Jason, after which we take a voicemail about the process of changing one’s mind (is it instantaneous or a process? Are certain types of people more averse to change than others?). We discuss the controversy surrounding Nike’s new ad campaign, and then take another call about whether it is necessary to root our good deeds in some religion or another. Biebers involve mobile devices and driving habits.

Podcast #217: Race Relations, #MeToo, and Dating

9/2/2018
More
DXP #217 opens with a voicemail from Dick Bush about a new job prospect. We then hear from another caller challenging our position on racist jokes and on whether Trump supporters are themselves on the racism spectrum. We take a question from a new patron and self-proclaimed “worst Texan ever” about the #MeToo movement, and then discuss a recent study about how most people attempt to date “out of their league” (also, men are super shallow apparently). Biebers involve spouse-sharing and...

Podcast #216: Avenatti, Argento, Airports, and Axes

8/26/2018
More
Episode #216 of DXP begins with a voicemail for the one of us who “has a real job.” We then talk a bit about future president Michael Avenatti, after which we play a voicemail about the film BlacKkKlansman. We spend some time breaking down the Asia Argento scandal and discuss what its ramifications are, if any, for the MeToo movement. This leads to a discussion about sexual abuse and power more generally, as well as whether gender is relevant. Biebers involve airports and axes.

Podcast #215: Race, Abuse, and Crap Neighbors

8/20/2018
More
We begin episode #215 of DXP with a voicemail from the wife of one of our most famous listeners. We then discuss the issue of race, and the new film BlacKkKlansman in particular. We spend a little while engaging in potty talk (literally), and then devote the bulk of the episode discussing the recent abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. Biebers involve salt and horrible neighbors (what’s the deal, is it a race thing? A political thing? A socio-economic issue? Why are Jason’s neighbors so...

Podcast #214: Personal Growth, Discrimination, and Gay Stuff

8/12/2018
More
In DXP #214 we take a call from a listener who foolishly expects Jason to reconcile something he said in one episode with something he said in another (we don’t like being accountable for stuff). We discuss whether people are truly able to change, and then take up the issue of the various bases of discrimination (as in, can a diner refuse to serve mixed-race couples? Men in MAGA hats?). After following a rabbit trail about the Bible and the gays we share our biebers, which involve boats and...

Podcast #213: Conspiracies, Twitter, and Christopher Hitchens

8/6/2018
More
In this episode of DXP we discuss the conservative mindset in general and Christian’s recent date with a Trump-supporter in particular, seeking to understand the never-ending layers of conspiracy theories and confirmation bias. We address the issue of social media scrutiny as it applies to director James Gunn, and then hear from atheist Christopher Hitchens on the dangers of Christianity (which sparks a sharp disagreement among us). Biebers involve unoriginal music and unhelpful...

Podcast #212: The Devil & Dick Bush

7/30/2018
More
In this special episode of Drunk Ex-Pastors we welcome into the studio none other than the legend himself, Dick Bush (played by longtime DXP listener Chad Toney). Before the interview (which airs in the second half of the show), Jason and Christian discuss the various strongly-worded letters they have written to establishments that angered them, as well as answer a listener’s question about Satan’s agenda. Biebers involve aggressive drivers and annoying technology.

Podcast #211: Space Force and Drag Queens

7/23/2018
More
In this episode of DXP we are challenged by a listener about our dismissal Of “Space Force,” after which we spend some time discussing “Drag Queen Story Hour” (which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like), wondering aloud whether we’d feel comfortable having our kids read to by crossdressers. We hear from one of our favorite callers, after which Feeding Friendsy returns and tackles the thorny issue of free speech on Facebook. Biebers involve fruit and things we just shouldn’t have...

Podcast #210: Redeeming Heartbreak

7/16/2018
More
In this episode of Drunk Ex-Pastors we begin by shooting the breeze as usual, after which we discuss the issue of localism (as in, is it okay to hate newcomers to our communities for being new, or do we have to hate them for some other reason?). We then turn our attention, again, to the issue of relationships, discussing whether it is truly possible to redeem our past heartbreaks rather than seeing ourselves as simply damaged beyond repair. Bieber involve pizza and granola bars.

Podcast #209: Relationships, Dating, and “Space Force!”

7/8/2018
More
We begin episode #209 with a voicemail about how to pronounce things from a listener who comes from, ironically enough, Texas. We then hear from another caller who questions our judgment regarding talking about Chloe’s sex life in a public forum (she’s fine with it), after which we revisit the topic of sex and relationships. We visit a Trump rally and debate the issue of making space great again, after which we close with biebers about soccer (no, this one is not Jason’s) and bogus social...

Podcast #208: Let’s Talk about SEX, Baby!

7/2/2018
More
Episode #208 of DXP begins with a surprising voicemail during which we receive some important legal information. We then get into the fourth-of-July spirit by discussing the TV show 24 and how Jack Bauer is basically a war criminal who deserved all the tragedy he got. We spend the bulk of the episode talking about sex, and specifically how much detail we want our kids to go into when discussing their private lives with us. Biebers involve women’s dating expectations and the way old people...

Podcast #207: Fake News and Paper Abortions

6/25/2018
More
This episode of DXP begins with a caller doing his best “I can’t quit you” impression from that one gay cowboy movie, after which Jason tells about his near-death experience and the revenge he hopes to exact upon the perpetrator. We discuss the FLILF’s recent wardrobe choice, revisit the Chris Hardwick situation, and then take caller’s question about “paper abortion” which, apparently, is a thing. Biebers involve car fires and sunshine.

Podcast #206: Chris Hardwick, Kelly Tran, and Bullying

6/18/2018
More
Episode #206 of DXP begins with a couple rather odd voicemails, after which we discuss the departure from social media of Kelly Marie Tran after committing the crime of ruining everyone’s childhood. We then address the recent allegations of emotional and sexual abuse against Chris Hardwick by his former girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra. We take a call about whether the Rosanne- and NFL issues are at all similar, after which we hear Trump acting like a dictator. Biebers involve bacon and cheerios.

Podcast #205: RIP, Anthony Bourdain

6/11/2018
More
We begin this episode of Drunk Ex-Pastors by discussing rape for some reason. We spend some time addressing the death of Anthony Bourdain, as well as suicide more broadly, tackling issues like mental health, the pressure of celebrity status, and whether we should avoid our sense of emptiness or embrace it. We then talk a bit about the show Vikings (which has Jason puzzled beyond belief). Biebers involve convenient parking and men’s hairstyles.

Duration:01:35:44

Podcast #204: The Barr and the Bee

6/4/2018
More
This episode of DXP begins with a caller asking one of the most flattering questions a Christian could ever hope for. We then relay a story about texting and driving (which apparently is just fine under the right circumstances), after which we discuss Roseanne Barr, Samantha Bee, and Hollywood in general. Our biebers focus on unnecessarily confusing timelines and why being full-figured is a problem for Jason.
