Episode 97 - Halloween Stories: Vulnerability, Storytelling, and the Southern Christian Response to the Spookiest (and Best) Holiday

In Episode 97, Keith and Justin get spooky as they share their favorite Halloween stories. They talk about the role that vulnerability plays in letting yourself be scared, and what the church can learn from haunted houses. They also talk about the factors that go into crafting and telling a good scary story, as well as why they're appealing to listen to. Finally, the guys talk about how the church culture often responds to Halloween, and how the "Fall Festival" is not too different anyway. So whether you grew up going into trick-or-treat candy comas like Keith or were prohibited because of a fear of razors and witchcraft like Justin, there's something here for you! In the beginning, Justin talks about his Mom visiting him in Cambridge, and Keith gives is more sinister stories from his new haunt job. As always, we joined by Darcy Rumble as we talk about Sam DeBurgh's new music through Slow Bullet. Finally, the guys had to rerecord the end segment late at night because the file was somehow deleted (thanks, Keith/react-textreact-text: 190), so listen as we give our final thoughts and late night ramblings. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast! Let us know what you think.
