Then Tim and Lewis play some Good Tweet/Bad Tweet, Christian MeMEs, and answer a question from Dillon. There is no guarantee that if you listen to this you will be blessed (but it might happen).

In this episode, Tim and Lewis interview the famous (or infamous) Mollie Ziegler Hemingway, scourge of lazy journalists, and senior editor at The Federalist.

Tim and Lewis are back, reflecting on some criticism of last week's show, talking about "I'm Christian, but I'm Not."

In this episode, Tim and Lewis start off slow with random dialogue that doesn't mean a whole lot, then play some Good Tweet/Bad Tweet. After the break, they play some Bad Church Signs (yeah, they changed the name of the segment), and answer questions from Bryan, Chris, and Larry's iPhone. Tune in for mediocrity not seen since the last episode of Table Talk Radio.

In this episode, Tim and Lewis talk quite a bit about Baphomet, a new statue dedicated to Satan in Detroit (but the people there really have no idea what they're talking about). They then play some Good Tweet/Bad Tweet with some pretty obvious favorites (and a surprising one!). Christian MeMEs are a joke. Then, Katie's third and final question of her series get answered, as well as a good one from Kris. Tune in to hear Lewis jump on a soap box... and for some other stuff, too.
