The AK47 Podcast Season 2: Episode 2

Aaron and I risk our careers to talk about a very controversial figure, Milo Yiannopoulos.  We are giving commentary on the recent Eric Metaxas show that Milo appeared in.  We talk about the strange disconnect between Milo's beliefs about homosexuality and his lifestyle, how hosts interact with guests on interview shows, whether or not Milo is really conservative, and a host of other issues.

Listen to the episode here.

Metaxas' interview with Milo can be found here.

The AK47 Podcast Season 2: Episode 1

Aaron's description of the episode

We're starting off season two with a BANG! Mark Hemingway (formerly of the murdered Weekly Standard) graced us with his presence. Not physically of course, but Spiritually. We discuss being married to women who make more money than us, free markets, social values, and get some amazing musical recommendations. The Hemingways are notorious music snobs, which means when they recommend stuff its good. 

The Music recommendations were: 
S. Carey
Big Red Machine
Robbie Robertson, specifically his self titled album from 1987
The Blue Nile

And the Portlandia article can be found here

Also Mark sent me the quotation he couldn't remember, and its pretty epic: 
"One is reminded of an observation of the philosopher RĂ©mi Brague. “Faith produces its effects only so long as it remains faith and not calculation,” Brague wrote in the 1990s. “We owe European civilization to people who believed in Christ, not to people who believed in Christianity.”" - Reflections on the Revolution in Europe by Christopher Caldwell

Aaron and I cap off the year with one more BS episode.  This time, we talk about anime.  We talk about what constitutes an anime, what distinguishes anime from non-anime, what even is an "anime style," what shows got anime rolling here in America, a little bit about English dubs, and some good anime series or movies to start out with if you haven't watched anime before.

The AK47 Podcast Season 1: Episode 41

Aaron and I are going to focus on less politically, socially, and philosophically heavy things in the rest of the episodes this year.  It's break time, so we want to take it easy.  That doesn't mean those topics won't come out of our mouths though.

Aaron and I are all over the place in this episode.  We talk about the Aquaman movie, which Aaron recently watched, superhero movies in general, the Gospel, some apologetics, our thoughts on Ben Shapiro's interview with John MacArthur, stuff about the spiritual vs. the psychological, and more.

Listen to the episode here.
