Book Review: Grist for the Mill

August 30th, 2018

Ram Dass is synonymous with the Eastern philosophy movement that swept America and Western Europe in the 60s and 70s, but how many have acutally read his books? Would you think they'd be too lofty and intimidating, as befitting a learned and respected guru? Or would you think they would be rambling and nonsensical, like the memoirs of any celebrity of the drug-highs of the 60s? Would you be suprised to find out that they are neither: that they are starkly simple, down-to-earth musings of an unassuming middle class man? Listen in for a review packed with quotes and a rant breaking down why you shouldn't take being a philosophy major too seriously!

Worst. Pope. Ever.

August 8th, 2018

This week we delve into the Vatican, and get a run down on what the pope is supposed to do, and talk about three popes who failed miserably at that. There's a lot of slander, bribery, and excommunication ahead. From literal f*ckery that rivals any modern reality show, to trials more inane than anything Pheonix Wright has ever had to deal with, papal history is a weird place. Come join us to find out just why #FormosusDidNothingWrong and why Hitler's Pope doesn't deserve the bad reputation history handed him.

follow these links for a close up on the parts of the Sistine Chapel where Michaelangelo put Pope Julius II and Biagio de Cesena on blast.

And, if you wanted to see an illustration of the Cadaver Synod, here's a fantastic painting on the subject.
