SFR 429: Another Live Show

–Bobby’s work schedule will be wacky the next couple months, and we’re not exactly sure when we’ll be able to do live shows during this period. But we’ll try our best, and if we can’t do it, we’ll still record something. So please keep your eyes on our Facebook page and website for updates.
–The biggest story of the week involved the devastation in Texas and surrounding areas by Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey. Bobby and Jason each received a “Houston prayer chain” email. As atheists, how did we respond?
–One of the villains to come out of the news coverage has been Joel Osteen, who people claim didn’t do enough to open his doors to people seeking shelter. Jason is aware of his anti-Osteen bias enough to be unsure exactly what to make of it all.
–Should people be criticized for not donating more to relief efforts when they are rich?
–Bobby recently paid a visit to an Amish village, and has some amusing stories from the experience.
–Jason tells a story about his mom and her belief in psychic phenomena. We conclude that so much of so-called “psychic powers” aren’t very impressive.
–We open up the SFR mailbag, mostly to complain about angry emails we have received over time that totally misinterpreted what we said on a particular episode. Jason encourages people to write with questions before “calling us out” improperly, and Bobby asks for offending quotes or approximate time stamps when possible.
–The Los Angeles city council recently voted to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. We talk about how uncomfortable it can be to celebrate a man responsible for so much brutality. But Jason wonders if, in our rush toward more political correctness, we are substituting one set of atrocities for another.
–The release of IT is finally upon us, and both Bobby and Jason will be seeing in in the theater on opening day. We hope to have a great time. Tune in next week for a movie review!
