The Faitheism Project Podcast Season Two, Episode One: “The Conversation Continues”

There’s an excellent joke that even an atheist can get: “Q: How do you make God laugh? A: Tell him your plans”. Mel Brooks made that exact idea the theme song of his movie “The Twelve Chairs” — “Hope For The Best, Expect The Worst”. Disruption is simply one of Life’s possibilities. Disruptions happen organically:Continue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast Season Two, Episode One: “The Conversation Continues””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode 43: “Three Movies We Love And One We Don’t”

    Every now and then one has to step back and take a deep breath. While Randy and I do that — it being summer right now — we’d like to revisit one of our earlier podcasts where we each talked about three movies we love and one we kind of hate. Like a lotContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode 43: “Three Movies We Love And One We Don’t””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode 41: “Spirituality & Healing, Part Deux”

The title of this podcast doesn’t do it justice. Sure, there’s plenty of good conversation about spirituality and healing, but there’s really so much more. Maybe we should call this one “Spirituality, Healing & Some Amazing Storytelling”. In this one, Randy, um, lets his hair down. He pulls back the covers and talks frankly aboutContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode 41: “Spirituality & Healing, Part Deux””

The Faitheism Project Podcast Episode 36: “What Has Life (With A Capital “L”) Taught Me?”

There’s an old joke: “How do you make God laugh?  Tell him your plans.”  Whether you believe in an actual deity or not, we all understand that something in the Universe seems to draw a bead on us the moment we aspire to accomplish anything – even if it’s to just make it through theContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast Episode 36: “What Has Life (With A Capital “L”) Taught Me?””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #29: “Three Tickets To Paradise”

A few podcasts back, we put ourselves on a deserted island — just us, three movies we love and one book.  Then we returned to the island a few podcasts later and chose three songs.  In this podcast, paradise calls again. But, with a twist! Here’s a thought experiment the whole family can play: pictureContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #29: “Three Tickets To Paradise””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #26: “There’s A Story…”

The whole point of a spiritual journey is to discover truth.  Yours, the universe’s — and, if you’re a theist — God’s.  That journey is “our story”. And, if we find what we’re looking for, it’s natural to want to share that fact.  To, tell our story. Along the way, our stories zig and zag. Continue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #26: “There’s A Story…””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #21: “Was 2020 An Annus Horribilis Or The Annus Horribilest?”

One couldn’t be faulted for looking back at 2020 and thinking “What in hell’s name was that?  Betcha none of 2020’s “big events” were on anyone’s Bingo card — a worldwide pandemic… a never-ending election trauma here in America… Racism and bigotry run amok… An economy in free fall.  If we weren’t living through it,Continue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #21: “Was 2020 An Annus Horribilis Or The Annus Horribilest?””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #17: “Three Movies We Love And One We Don’t”

How does America stop feeding on itself?  How do we learn to bridge our differences without killing each other halfway across the bridge?  How do we even learn to have a civil conversation with each other?  It’s the Holidays, for Pete’s sake — having civil conversations is part of the deal.  What if we’ve forgottenContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #17: “Three Movies We Love And One We Don’t””
