We begin this episode of DXP by recounting how the website 23 and Me can be used to either heal or destroy families, depending on your perspective.

We begin episode #306 of Drunk Ex-Pastors with the customary banter, after which we take a call from a listener who thinks that Jason is full of shit.

In episode #305 of Drunk Ex-Pastors we spend the bulk of the show debating the plusses and minuses of the #DefundThePolice movement, as in, Is the demand too idealistic? What would a defunded police department look like for a city? Is compromise with the Right even possible? Is revolution necessarily violent? Our joint-bieber involves long annoying…

In this episode of DXP we reminisce a bit about our favorite music from the ‘00s, and Christian floats a theory about Stones vs. Beatles fans.

We hear a caller’s thoughts on the possible cause of Jason’s pes…
 
In this episode of Drunk Ex-Pastors we debrief a bit about how we’re holding up under quarantine, and do our best to climb inside the minds of those who are protesting the social distancing mandate under the guise of being some freedom fighter (as though Paul Revere and Patrick Henry had NO idea what tyranny and oppression were really like). We spe…
 
In this episode of DXP we debrief about the joys and struggles of quarantining (hint: One of us likes it more than the other).

In this episode of DXP we debrief about what it’s like to shelter in place. Turns out, binge-watching TV shows and drinking all day are pretty awesome.

DXP #294 gives us all a glimpse into what is by all accounts the “new normal.” But although we are separated by a few miles, we still take a deep dive into all thing COVID-related. Topics we explore include the lengths to which we are self-quarantining, the effects this is having on our lives and relationships, whether it’s racist to refer to this …
 
In Episode 293, we take a moral sense test, delving into numerous variations of “The Trolley Problem”, a thought experiment in ethics, which pits utilitarianism against deontological ethics.

DXP #289 begins with a harrowing account of what happens when you (1) go out drinking with a bunch of DXP fans, (2) rent an electric scooter, and (3) attempt to make it back to your hotel unharmed (hint: The answer is surgery.

After finally figuring out how to pronounce the word “psychopathy,” we try to figure out the age-old question of who would last longer in a sudden drought: the well-hydrated person who is always drinking water or the person who rarely drinks water and is used to being dehydrated. We then move on to the Proust Questionnaire where we get through ques…
 
After some Star Wars banter and a voicemail offering us serious money if we review the film Cats (something we are actually considering because we are whores), we spend the bulk of the episode taking the famous Proust Questionnaire (we only get about 1/3 of the way through it), answering questions like “What is your idea of true happiness?”, “What …
 
In this episode of Drunk Ex-Pastors we chat with Dave Warnock, an ex evangelical pastor turned atheist.

We begin this episode of DXP by revisiting the topic of the inevitability of death (but not inconsequential deaths, deaths that actually matter).

We discuss the therapeutic use of ps…
 
In this episode of Drunk Ex-Pastors we play a listener’s voicemail about death, which leads us into a discussion about so-called “Optimistic Nihilism,” a view that says that we can still find beauty in the world despite everything being pointless and destined to ruin.
