Ben, Matt







Some fun moments.

Ben remembers that they used to gift autographed copies of their show notes from The Life Report.

Mike Poteet came up with a contest: describe in 75 words or fewer the novel Tolkien and Lewis could have co-wrote.

The prize is an autographed copy of a The Lord of the Rings-themed devotional.

Matt's latest fundraising scheme: for $15 he will record an audio description of a Geek Grab Bag of the donor's choice.

Ben thinks Temple of Doom is worse than Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

29:42 We at The Sci-Fi Christian are against racism. Yes, and— Officially. We are pro-Christian though. Yeah. We're anti-other religions. Well, we're anti those religions, but we like the people in them. For the most part. Oh yeah, we love all people. Well. We love people! I don't know if we love Hitler. Do you think Jesus loved Hitler? Uh, yeah, but I think he was a little annoyed with him.

Matt wonders how many episodes they'd be at if they had split the episodes all along. Arc

Ben says the schedule is to release two episodes a week, with special appearances by Daniel and "Kory". So, no more Listener Feedback shows.

Ben jokes that he'll just stop forwarding feedback to Matt. For now it's a joke.
