Christ and Pop Culture

This week, Richard and Cray discuss the Ferguson non-indictment and evangelical reactions before Jared Oliphint joins the crew to talk about some dubious spiritual tweeting habits from Christians. We also discuss the futility of trying to come to terms with Bill Cosby in the midst of so many rape allegations that have surfaced, followed by a word on Thanksgiving and the Serial podcast.

We also talk about some unique ways that videogames are treating the war experience, the supposed satanic campaign by Monster energy drink, and a scientist's unpopular t-shirt.
