Episode 87 - Stan Lee in Memoriam (w/Cameron Miller)

November 29, 2018

On this episode of the Internet's only podcast, we're joined by the comic book pagemaster himself, Cameron Miller. As you might have heard the great Stan Lee has passed, and the world is in mourning (except for Bill Maher apparently), and we're looking back on Stan Lee's life, and the mark he's left on the world. Is he more influential than Walt Disney? We dive into this. Is he more responsible for the rise of comic book popularity than Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko? Cameron has some thoughts on this, as well. We're also joined by Bryan Kane PhD, Brian Wegener aka Brankie Poo of the late great Super BS Gamescast, Big Dawg Justin Lenehan, Danial "so-called" nice guy, and Brett Crews (who is a firm believer in Jesus and tacos). While some of us at the table are comic book fans, we had our fair share of non-comic book shenanigans and audio issues. So we apologize ahead of time.

Disclaimer: Before listening to this episode, make sure you tune into Episode 85 (Tribalism in the Church Pt 1) because this episode picks up immediately after.

On this episode of Topicocalypse, we get back to our conversation with Travis Carreiro about the concept of tribalism in the church. We break into some heavy concepts like the heart of Christianity, swearing, experiencing God outside the church, fear of self, and failure. We also dive into questions like: Is the Mega Church declining? And how long until that model falls apart? We also discuss the idea of socializing, family, and being who you were meant to be. Special shoutout to the authors and public voices that helped inspire this conversation, Jordan Peterson, Tim Keller, Gavin McInnes, Paul Tillich, Peter Rollins, Eric Erikson, and Russell Brand.

Episode 84 - Tribalism in the Church Part 1 (w/Travis Carreiro)

November 15, 2018

The only podcast on the Internet returns! And this time we're joined by somebody who I can safely say is a lot smarter than us (at least in terms of knowledge that is actually important in life). That's right, on this episode, we're joined by our good friend Travis Carreiro, who has some intellect to add to the chaos of our usual train of thought. We're talking about the idea of tribalism in the church. Christian culture seems to always revolve around groups of people socializing under the banner of certain theologies. It goes so deep that identity is found in these concepts. Travis believes that one can believe in God and exist in the church, while having a person identity separate from the church. From there we dive into the idea of getting legalistic with God, what it means to be human, rules vs human nature, worship in mega churches, and so many other great ideas. Special mentions to Tim Keller, Paul Tillich, Peter Rollins, Erick Erickson, Jordan Peterson, and Russell Brand, whose thoughts inspired our conversation in one way or another.

November 10, 2018

Welcome back fans. We apologize for our inconsistent episode posting, but we're back and we've got a sort of long episode for you. On this episode of the only podcast on the Internet (that's us) Big Dawg wants to know how we feel about "do nothings" in the workplace. He's having some issues with people doing nothing and then taking credit for the things that he's done at work. Louie Vazquez of Vazquez and Family Incorporated has some thoughts on this. He digs into the concept of knowing your value as an employee and gives us a behind the scenes look at what employers actually think. From there, we snowball into a bevy of other topics, including education and how to properly interview for a job. Later on in the episode we're joined by the one and only Big Jim to get his thoughts as a seasoned engineer. All of this and and more on this episode of Topicocalypse.

Episode 81 - Racism and the Casting of the Witcher

October 27, 2018

You're a racist! That's what everybody says to each other in 2018 when disagreements occur. Luckily, on Topicocalypse, we disagree on everything. What does that say about us? I have no idea. However, on this episode of the internet's only podcast, we're talking Henry Cavill playing Geralt of Rivia in Netflix's adaptation of The Witcher novels by Andrezej Sapkowski, who isn't exactly satisfied with royalties given to him by CD Projekt Red after the video game series became such a massive success. We talk about this, and how people are calling for more diverse casting but probably won't even watch the series, and so many other things.
