This episode, we begin by talking about Star Wars as a Religion, and we end by talking about Out of Body experiences and seeing an Angel!

EPISODE 054: Vigilante Love: Bella Biagio

In this episode, we spend a significant amount of time discussing the depravity of humanity and how together, if we have the guts, we can stand up, stand out, and make a difference.  But, dealing with corporations is another story altogether.

You remember Bella from the previous episode.

I met Bella through my friend Eddie.  Eddie was hanging out in the CounterCulture Society Mad Lab one day and mentioned, "You know who you need to have on the podcast? BELLA BIAGIO!"

I'M A LOSER: Songs, Dictatorship, Democracy, Hypocrisy, Non's, and More Guns: Thomas Paine

I'M A LOSER: Songs, Dictatorship, Democracy, Hypocrisy, Non's, and More Guns: Thomas Paine

I'm a Loser, happens every month, at the end of the month. You send us stuff, and we discuss it!

In America, we are in the midsts of another insane election season.  One where our nation seems to be in the middle of internal turmoil, killing each other, and armchair politics running wild.

Let this Thomas Paine quote be a reminder to look past ourselves.  Seek to live peaceably with one another, and to drop ideologies, politics, and religion that aim to divide us not strengthen us.  We can love each other globally IF you, and I will do it locally.

The Losers bring a great song, articles, conversation, and gratitude to this episode.

This episode is the roots of the Losing Our Religion podcast.  It's conversations like this that led to the idea of recording and sharing the beautiful coming together of humans with humans...

I'M A LOSER: Is There A God? Does it Matter?: Russell Brand & Stephen Fry

I'M A LOSER: Is There A God?  Does it Matter?: Russell Brand & Stephen Fry

”None of us can ever know if there is a God, but we do know there is an us.  None of us can ever know if there is wrong or right.  But we do know there is an us."
- Russell Brand

“The question is not is there a God but is there suffering?”
- Amma, The Hugging Saint

"Yes there is suffering and what can we do about our suffering?  We can help one another and we can love one another.  Now if you can do that through atheism then do it through atheism."
- Russell Brand

You all know by now that Losing Our Religion is not a church bashing free for all...
...although the church deserves to be bashed...

EPISODE 033: Growing Up In This Mess Together: Rob Femur

EPISODE 033: Growing Up In This Mess Together: Rob Femur

This is a must listen to episode because of the beautiful spirituality expressed in our connection together. As well as Rob's ability to call me out on my own shit shut me up when I'm talking too much, and mutually honor each others art and lives together.

Rob asks me some very specific questions about my life, faith, church attendance, and what being a "believer" looks like post-institutional religion.  If I'm not in church, what keeps me going?
