Picture this - you're a pastor at an evangelical Christian mega church, and donations are slipping. What are you gonna do? Well if Mark McConville (one of the best comedy podcasters ever to do it) is correct, what you're gonna do is fake a scandal, jet off to 'rehab', then sell a redemption narrative so compelling that Jesus Christ himself would be like 'woah'. Yes Mark suspects that some of these ministers going down for drug and affair scandals are just cynically plotting to raise more money for the church. Listen in this week for a surprisingly heartfelt conversation about the intersection between religion and capitalism, then a bunch of hot new ideas for gender neutral nicknames.
