How to Slingload an 1100 Pound Biblical Giant

The internet is a wonderful thing. It lets us podcast, lets us make friends, and lets us share the 100 percent true and verified story about how, in 2002, the US Army did battle with a biblical giant. Who was the Giant of Kandahar? Why do people seem to think this is real? Should we rebrand as a military crypto-zoology podcast? All this and more, in this week’s episode.

The absurd article we quote from is here: https://www.thexplan.net/article/378/The-Giant-of-Kandahar-And-The-Lost-Race-Of-The-Nephilim/it

We do some garden chat at the beginning—the episode starts in earnest at 8:43.

This week’s bonus is another DadChat. It’s available at the $1 tier and covers topics like: Nate’s brother speaking German like a German redneck, residents of small states being like yappy dogs in Francis’ opinion, the huge gulf of cultural differences between northern and southern Missouri, and much more.
