Ep 495 – The Trouble with God, P1

Written by on May 20, 2018

Glenn and Randy sit down with Chris Matheson, author of “The Story of God: A Biblical Story of Love (and Hate)” and its follow-up “The Trouble with God: A Divine Comedy about Judgment (and Misjudgment).  In this episode, we discuss his general interest in religion, his career in film starting as co-creator of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and the comedy gold he first found in the Bible for “The Story with God” and The Book of Mormon for his newest book, “The Trouble with God.”
Chris’s new book can be purchased here:  The Trouble with God

    Huge fan of Bill and Ted and Chris Matheson. Thanks for this episode!!! It was great. I grew up watching both Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey. I loved both but I’m one of those that liked Bogus Journey even more. It’s super quirky and great. Station!!!

      When they played Matheson’s reading of his book, sometimes I almost felt like Keanu Reeves was talking. He was either a great match for the movies, or really absorbed from the role, or both.

    Great discussion. This coupled with what Christian and Bryan had to say in their Listener Essays really highlights how little sense there is to be made of religion on close examination. SO much style, culture and content must be skipped over or ignored for it to be the least bit believable. Can’t wait for Part 2.

      Ralph, casting pearls to swine to perserve order –– we must have order.
      Only god is god, there is no god but god and god only knows for sure.
      God is everywhere, god clings to you soul like sore underwear.
      For god’s sake change your shorts.

      Ralph, casting call for “pearls to swine” to perserve order –– we must have order.
      Only god is god, there is no god but god and god only knows for sure.
      God is everywhere, god clings to you soul like sore underwear.
      For god’s sake change your shorts.
      Latter day Saints are alive and well with the Trumpublican Menace.
      The petulant child posing, Gas Lighting the world while his minions drool over fantastical victories, lots of deals –– the ultimate fluffer –– he is a “Bibical” character.
      As trump, the ultimate fluffer, has said, “You will be richly rewarded –– believe me.”
