We've All Heard of God the Father... But What About God the Lover!?!
In this latest episode YaYa and TRUTH are back with a new and improved, 'Community Pastoral Care' segment where the pair give some insight into the latest Pew Research Center project titled Modeling the Future of Religion in America. They explore a projected future where the majority of American people identify as religious 'nones' or 'somes' (ie. people who either have no religion or who identify as spiritual but not religious). Later in the episode TRUTH delves deep into her process of discernment when making big decisions; especially for people who may not be connected to the church or to sources of spiritual guidance. And then finally, for the Moon Reading, YaYa takes us through what to expect for the final days of this period of Mercury in retrograde.

Got To Give It Up
We’re all familiar with ritual fasting for holidays like Lent and Ramadaan, and then there are practices like intermittent fasting that the girls are doing for weight loss, even married folks are out here taking celibacy breaks… but what’s the true spiritual value of fasting? Will the practice really make us any closer to God and are there times it can do more harm than good? Then, YaYa will take us through the moon reading, looking ahead to the March 20th Spring Equinox, sharing everything you can do to start again with a fresh, clean slate and good energy for the upcoming season.

What the Hell is a "Celebrity" Pastor?
November has been a rough month for the influencer couples of the Christian Evangelical church. From Relentless church Pastor John Gray’s public apology "honoring" his wife after (yet another) cheating scandal, to Elevation church pastor Carl Lentz being removed from leadership for his own infidelity, playboy pastors (and their wives) have been getting caught up in the comments section! In a world where any publicity can be good publicity, YaYa and TRUTH, ask the real talk question of the week, “when celebrity culture meets the church world, who really wins?” Then in the Moon reading YaYa concludes the ongoing series Zodiac 101 where she covers concepts in Astrology for beginners.

It's the LAST episode of the season so you know what that means... YaYa and TRUTH are going out with a BANG! This week on God and the World the pair are taking stock of 2020 and wondering...are these signs of the end times? --- we’re talking Apocalypse, murder bees, the Mother’s day weekend polar vortex and ALIENS confirmed... what the heck is going on here? Next, it's all about Access -- Even though we're mostly stuck at home, with 24 hour connectivity, it can feel like the outside world has more access than ever before, so how do we decide who and what has how much access to us and when? Then for the Moon Reading, you'll be getting time in advance to get it together for the Summer Solstice. And finally we’re bringing back Community Pastoral Care. Trigger Warning -- For the community Pastoral Care segment we will be discussing the murder of Ahmaud Arbrey and then praying together about it. This is some heavy stuff, and we understand that you just may not be here for it right now. The segment runs from 51:27 - 1:08:00 -- Be gentle with yourself and skip it if you need to care for yourself in that way.

Good Fat with guest Sarah K.
In S2 Ep.2 of Real Talk On Godtalk, your favorite co-hosts sit down with Sarah K - writer, community engagement coordinator, and self proclaimed “fat woman”. Her work joins the field of ‘fat studies’ and social ethics with theologies of the body. She helps us answer the Real Talk question of the week, “How do our feelings about fat people clue us into our beliefs about God?”. Next, in Keeping Time and the Moon Reading, YaYa shows us how to take advantage of the back to back meteor showers that end in a full moon on October 13th. And finally, we have a new segment called “Quality of Life Hack”, where this week, TRUTH introduces us to a more spiritually grounded approach to the activity everyone loves to hate: networking. N.B At about 38:56 YaYa mistakenly refers Sara Baartman as Venus Hottentot. Let’s use the platforms we have to self-correct and #sayhername : Sara Baartman (1770s – 29 December 1815) was the best known of at least two South African Khoikhoi women who, due to their large buttocks, were exhibited in racist freak show attractions in 19th-century Europe under the name Hottentot Venus—"Hottentot", an offensive term, was the name for the Khoi people. Upon her death in 1815, Baartman’s body was dissected and displayed in the western scientific community for “medical research”.
