Episode 113 - Are Sports Fans Inherently Religious?: A Discussion on Sports, Evangelicals, and Social Theory

In Episode 113, Keith and Justin sit down to discuss the religious roots of sports and its effect on our behavior? What are some of the similarities between sports and religion? How do they shape our behavior? How do they shape our communities? Will dedication to sports replace religious belief? How do we treat people of different fandoms/beliefs? And how does the modern church fit into all of this? Listen to find out! In the beginning, the guys discuss Keith’s warm-weather Snapchat game, Justin’s Boston Snowpocalypse, and they watch a short video about a sassy (and hilarious) Wendy’s Twitter handle. As always, we are joined by Darcy Rumble from Giants in the Sound as we discuss Convictions’ new(ish) album, I Will Become. Finally, in the end, the guys wrap up the show by giving their final thoughts. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast. Let us know what you think!
