  • Ep. 69: Libertarian Review of "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" (1982)
    October 4, 2020 at 4:49 pm

    We're taking a break from recording until the election, and we wanted to pause on a high note.  This week we covered the musical "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas", which talks about the libertarian concepts of whether or not prostitution should be illegal, who gets to decide what individual cities do, and the supply and demand of sexual services.

  • Ep. 68: Atheist Review of "The Sunset Limited" (2011)
    September 16, 2020 at 2:08 pm

    This week, after a while of catching up with each other, we covered the cerebral film "The Sunset Limited", starring Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson.  We discuss the film's coverage of arguments for Christianity, of nihilism, and of whether or not life has meaning.

  • Ep. 67: Atheist Review of "The Invention of Lying" (2009)
    September 8, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    This week we delve into why Ricky Gervais's film "The Invention of Lying" is on multiple best-atheist-films lists—from ideas of an afterlife and what Heaven is like, to the character of God and his role in people's life.  And, of course, lying vs. honesty.

  • Ep. 66: Libertarian Review of "Dallas Buyers Club" (2013)
    August 26, 2020 at 12:49 am

    This week we review "Dallas Buyers Club" which is based on a true story about a man who has AIDS and has to smuggle in the medication he needs to keep himself and other AIDS patients alive.  Many libertarian themes throughout the film; it was great!

  • Ep. 65: Navigating Homeschool and "School from Home"
    August 19, 2020 at 12:11 am

    This week Adam and Lisa share their tips for homeschooling—what Lisa learned from homeschooling her children last year, and Adam's decade-long experience as a high school teacher.  We hope these tips will help and encourage those who are doing the mandated "schooling from home", and those who may be considering officially homeschooling their children.
