We finally got the three of us back in the studio, which can only mean one thing: more censorship than I would have thought possible! Listen in as we discus:

  • How Barnabas is settling into his new role at Immanuel
  • Who we were in middle school (and which kid in The Sandlot were we)
  • If Malcolm Gladwell is insufferable (or if it’s just his fans)
  • If Barnabas should read Talking to Strangers
  • Titles for a future Gladwell book
  • Our decision to read a book by a certain controversial figure
  • Who pulls off a more convincing “How dare you!”
  • Three books Barnabas tried to read but really hated

Plus, Barnabas offers an apology (kind of).

As always, thanks to our friends at Lagares Coffee Roaster for partnering with us to make the Table of (mal)Contents blendOrder all the bags you can handle today.
