Ross Boards the Ark (Part 4): Bible In Motion Edition

Ross is back at the Ark Experience in Kentucky, where he joins a bunch of homeschooling mothers in the kitchen for the busy mom’s guide to romance, sees the full Armor of God in the flesh, and finally memorizes all the key events of the Old Testament using hand motions. Carrie is equally fascinated by chief busy mom Heidi St. John, but can she stay awake through the Bible lesson? It’s an adventure that is positively Ze-rubbable! We have social media: Twitter!

Ross and Carrie Blow FoodMarble: Hydrogen Breath Testing Edition

Carrie Takes Ivermectin: COVID Patient Zero Edition

Carrie, the first person to ever have COVID, tells Ross about her intractable symptoms, and get-well-fast scheme: a little-known medicine called Ivermectin (not the horse version). While some people (read: scientists) might consider it a parasite treatment with unproven efficacy for COVID, Carrie can’t resist something that might make her poop her pants. Will she?! Plus, they discuss public health policy, tolerating grey areas, and how we approach science at the edges. We have social...

Were they bulletproof before? Does this phrase have a meaning? Find out! We have...


Ross and Carrie Meet Alice Greczyn: Wayward Edition

Ross and Carrie welcome Alice Greczyn, an actress and author of the memoir Wayward: Spiritual Warfare and Sexual Purity.

Now, years later in Los Angeles, she sits down with Ross and Carrie to talk about purity culture, revival “miracles,” and the psychological burdens of writing a memoir. We have...

And a surprise...


Ross and Carrie Watch Buddha Maitreya: Reincarnated Jesus Edition

Carrie tells Ross what she learned from watching and studying Buddha Maitreya, a peculiar fellow in Northern California who uses his small online platform to share his divine views on sacred geometry, the problem of evil, the unexpected structure of human personality, and the greatest of all sins: sex. And why should you listen to him? Because he is the resurrection of Buddha and the Christ. And he’s got the forgotten 1993 Keanu Reeves movie to prove it. For pics and videos, follow us...
