Episode 118 - Bad Poetry, Emo Lyrics, and Embarrassing Stories: Justin's Experience with Art and Faith

In Episode 118, Justin takes the reins as he breaks down his personal experiences with art and faith. Swallowing his pride, he dives down into his bad middle and high school poetry, as well as his terrible emo lyrics in an effort to show the ways in which his journey and understanding of faith has directly influenced his writing. How are faith and art connected? Is there an implicit connection between evangelicalism and emo culture? And how is being embarrassed by your art actually a good thing? Listen to find out! In the beginning, Keith laments over Duke’s loss in the NCAA Tournament, and Justin gets irrationally angry at an undergrad in his class. We are once again joined by Darcy Rumble from Giants in the Sound as we discuss Celtic-punk band Flatfoot 56’s new album, Odd Boat. We are longtime fans, so be sure not to miss this one! Finally, in the end, the guys take a journey through TimeHop to see the embarrassing things that Keith has posted on Facebook. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast.
