Episode 5 - Book of Eli and Churchianity
Dec 22, 2017
Hello and Welcome to another debate podcast - but this time with movies! First things out the way, yes we did leave you hanging for a minute. But really, how else were we going to get you to miss us? Didn't you know that absence makes the heart grow fonder? Wait, what's that? Oh, you didn't miss us. Oh you didn't even notice we were gone? Well.....screw you then. We'll try a different plan next time. You will love us by the end, whether you want to or not; I guarantee it.
But yes we are finally back with our fifth installment of The Non Critic podcast and this, I must say, is one of my favourite topics to debate (as I say numerous times this episode) - yes folks, its Religion. No no don't turn away. No, we have not turned into the online version of Jehovah's witnesses and we are not, at any point in the show, going to ask you if you know our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ or how your walk is going. I am, however, going to chop it up with one of the hosts of Christian podcast, Black Berea, and challenge her on why religion is at all necessary and whether it should have a place in politics, society and humanity. Yes, it gets very real. Mary Talabi joins me on this episode to discuss the movie 'The Book of Eli', released in 2010, directed by The Hughes Brothers and starring Denzel "sexual chocolate" Washington and Mila "she was ok in Bad Moms" Kunis. It's a great movie to watch but if you haven't watched it yet, there aren't any real spoilers so you can listen before watching. As always, we got you.
