Escaping the Dreaded “Friend Zone”

20:24 – 

Tim’s wife friend-zoned him: Not once. Not twice. Three times. Jenny was often “one of the guys,” including being “just friends” for 10 years with her now-husband. Matt and his girlfriend were good friends first, but eventually started dating a year ago. How did these three get trapped in the friend zone, then (miraculously) manage to crawl out of it? They share their stories, plus tips for taking friendship to the next level.

For the Love of Beards (and Jesus)

Guests: Jared Brock,

21:25 – 

It’s No-Shave November, so Lisa called her friend Jared Brock to talk about the relationship between beards and the gospel. Jared talks about the legacy of guys like Charles Spurgeon, Keith Green and the guy who created the “WWJD” phenomenon. He also dives deep into the implications of Christianity on manhood. On a lesser note, Lisa offends Jared with a reference to kombucha.
