House of Heretics

This week, instead of my regular Sacred Tension podcast, I’m releasing my Patrons-only podcast House of Heretics. It’s blasphemous, unedited, and a lot of fun. Justin and I drink coffee and discuss pop culture, religion, science, and whatever else strikes our fancy.

If you like what you hear, please consider becoming a patron by going to Patreon. Finances are tight, even though I’m working full time, and I need your help to make sure my work has a long life.
