The Podcast Ninja (Luke) is at the table today. We begin by talking about how much fun comedian's have when they're driving about 10 hours, to and from a show. Then, the Peaches reminds John about how wrong he was two episodes ago... (Remember when John was wrong, Neighbor?) But she's actually trying to make him feel better by sharing something tha…
 
The Comedian and The Peaches are talking about heartrate and stress. Apparently, it's possible for your body to be stressed without your mind being aware of it. Who knew? We always talk about not being able to trust our emotions, but we can't always trust our thoughts and perceptions, either... Sometimes the tasks that would be stressful for others…
 
We're here at the table, Neighbor Pkarlgh! (And the kids are working busily nearby.) Join us while we talk about John's latest post on social media. Spoilers: this conversation does not go the way he expected... In this episode: -Why would a person post a comment that is nothing but Scripture? -Social media encourages disagreement and misunderstand…
 
Welcome to the table, Neighbor Pkarlgh! The Peaches had an epiphany this week regarding how important it is for the human body to have food. Isn't it crazy the way the sun rises every morning--and putting nutrients in your stomach can change your life? But let's remember: people are not just physical creatures. We have minds and souls as well. Late…
 
We're going to be totally honest about some stuff today, Neighbor! The Peaches still has been dealing with some emotional and psychological discomfort. (We would blame the thyroid if we could, but that's has been ruled out, so.... darn.) Sometimes, life's trials just FEEL more weighty than other times... Hang on, we have a quick interruption while …
 
What do you think, Neighbor? Should John record another Dry Bar special? Either way, let's talk about why John keeps posting about Modesty on social media and triggering the "bossy" Feminists... We don't live in a Patriarchy anymore. So, when you discover certain words/topics you're not allowed to say, it's not a bad idea to keep your finger on tha…
 
Good to have you at the table, Neighbor Pkarlgh! If you have any tips for helping Collin grow an inch taller before the summer, please let us know. Now--let's talk about a book by Vishal Mangalwadi called "The Book that Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization." There is a stark difference between the assumptions of E…
 
Last week, the Peaches said "If you really believe a thing, it will lead to action. And the main thing stopping people from ACTING on their beliefs is fear/uncertainty." But... Pkarlgh sent an email with a possible exception involving masks at work, so we need to unpack this a bit more. Next: this entire winter has been full of health trials for th…
 
Welcome to the kitchen table of the Comedian Next Door, Neighbor Pkarlgh! We've taken away the video games and other screens, so the kids are playing ball in the house. John recently realized there aren't many people in the Church today who are willing to be as bold and confident as Paul. Why is that? Are people afraid to speak the truth?... or do …
 
Hi, Neighbor! The Peaches used to believe that every, single bad thing on the planet could be attributed to "selfishness." (And she still leans that direction.) But NOW she thinks absolutely every conflict boils down to a clash between the Truth and a lie. Lots and lots of people are really struggling to express themselves. We give two examples of …
 
It is NOT ok to tell confused people they are ok. I understand that it feels good to be the person speaking positive affirmations. However, it is much more important to speak truth than to say happy things. You are encouraging a person who’s thinking about stepping into a minefield. “It’s ok to not know where to step yet,” you say with a smile. “Ju…
 
The boys/men of the family just got back from eating "Man Food." Quick--let's talk about what made John laugh this week, before we dive into the INTERESTING stuff the Peaches wants to discuss. First of all, why are a bunch of irrelevant, old musicians picking a fight with Joe Rogan? Well--we want to announce (formally) that we're joining the boycot…
 
Welcome to our table, Neighbor Pkarlgh. The Peaches is particularly thankful for spreadable butter today. Also--please enjoy this story about a misbehaving toddler and the lengths a mom/aunt must go to discipline those little humans. Are we being "petty" and "making a big deal out of nothing" when we forcibly remove the stolen deer jerky out of a c…
 
Welcome back to our much-less-jolly house, Neighbor Pkarlgh. We're undecorating, and we're talking about how to deal with disappointment or discontent. (PLEASE teach your kids to recognize and manage their feelings of disappointment. PLEASE!!!) Later: John has been upsetting the pro-Abortion crowd. But the Peaches believes Christians/Pro-Lifers are…
 
Welcome to the Comedian's house, where we spent the afternoon recording new intros/outros for your listening pleasure! The four McBabies complicated the process juuuuuust a bit. Write us at nextdoor@johnbranyan.com to let us know what you think. Next, we've been discussing the problem with creating brand new content every, single day and never stop…
 
Welcome to the kitchen table of the Comedian Next Door. When you're here, we affectionately call you "Neighbor Pkarlgh." The Comedian's family is gearing up for a Christmas-and-New-Year's hybrid celebration, and we have a lot of preparations to make. But first, let's talk about the sin of speaking without thinking carefully first... Have you notice…
 
We're recording virtually again this week, Neighbor. We're really not that sick. Mostly, we just lost track of time. Plus, Tabby gave birth to her baby two days before Christmas, which was kind of an ordeal. (Spoilers: her husband was barred from entering the hospital by stupid COVID regulations and had to watch the birth from his phone in the park…
 
Who wants to live in a big city??? Not us! We're very happy living in a small town next door to YOU, Neighbor Pkarlgh. We heard an analogy describing wives as gardeners and husbands as firefighters. But, we need to discuss the way this analogy is being exploited by insufferable church ladies who smell "smoke" constantly because their emotions cause…
 
We're trying to cut down on the microphone clunking, Neighbor. Let us know how that's going. Also, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Comedian's house! Unfortunately, we can't think of very many good words to describe it... So let's get down to business talking about whether Christians should be jerks! Nobody actually thinks being a…
 
Hey, Neighbor! The Podcast Ninja (Luke) shot a deer. And Silas wants a quesadilla. And also we've been decorating for Christmas... After all of that chatter, we get busy talking about WHATEVER WE WANT, because we can draw connections with any two ideas if we think about it long enough! (Send us your suggestions for two seemingly-unrelated topics, a…
 
Welcome to the kitchen table, Neighbor Pkarlgh! The ladies in our family get together once a week for "Just Because I Love You Day," and this time John is crashing the hen party. So, we're recording two podcasts at the same time. There are twice the number of children usually in the background, so please bear with their happy chatter. On the mics: …
 
Hey, Neighbor! Sorry for the technical glitch in the intro. No idea what's going on there. John just came back from St. Louis, where he was hanging out with Tim Hawkins' family. They recorded a podcast which will get published next week and involves important conversation about grapes. NO SPOILERS! You'll just have to listen when it's available. Al…
 
Hi, neighbor! If you're listening, we call you "Pkarlgh." It's another challenging day in Homeschool Land. Shockingly, when you set out to educate your children, it's not all smiling faces and photo ops. Lots of people think they can solve this problem by throwing another trillion dollars at the public school system--to reward the "good teachers" w…
 
Welcome to the Comedian's house, Neighbor Pkarlgh! If you don't want to spend a long time shooting the breeze about Japanese food, we apologize in advance. John published a post about "Peacemaking" this week, and the Peaches wasn't impressed with his delivery. It was a bit rambly and unorganized. Buuuuut, there were some strong points. Here's the p…
 
Welcome to our house, Neighbor! We're not over-exaggerating when we say John and the Peaches aren't seeing completely eye-to-eye on this episode. Be prepared for a little bickering... A listener weighs in on a recent episode. Do teachers WANT their students to be as offended as possible? The Peaches disagrees with both John and the Neighbor who sen…
 
This episode is dedicated to reading comments, emails, and reviews from people who aren't very impressed with John Branyan (to say the least). Welcome to the kitchen table, Neighbor Pkarlgh! If you have always wanted to tell John that he's an incompetent loser who wouldn't understand humor if it fell from a tree and knocked him over, then you're go…
 
Hi, Neighbor Pkarlgh! We decided to record a podcast in the middle of the Facebook Outage, because we thought it might be headline news for longer than 10 minutes... John talked to his Computer Coding Genius friend who gave us some insider information on why the whole system went down for the longest blackout in the platform's history. THEN, we giv…
 
The Peaches didn't write a proper summary for this episode, Neighbor. Here are the bare basics: our culture finds it much easier to identify and call out "toxic masculinity" than to recognize when WOMEN are being toxic. So--today we're talking about sinful female behavior (with examples from social media). But, before all of that, we share a plan f…
 
We have SO MANY THINGS TO TALK ABOUT, Neighbor! Tune in next Wednesday for our houseguest episode with David Pendleton with some BREAKING CULTURAL NEWS. There’s a scandal related to a respected Christian institution, and you probably aren’t even aware of it, yet. But that’s why you listen to the Comedian Next Door! So you can be “in the know.” Next…
 
Welcome, Pkarlgh! The birthday party prep is in full swing, and 5-year-old Emery was given the best chore ever! This reminds John of a new segment idea: Is This a Joke?! As the culture continues to swim in irrationality, there are a lot of things happening that would have been considered unbelievable 20 years ago... For example: Atheist chaplains a…
 
Hi, Neighbor! When you're hanging out at the Comedian's house, we affectionately call you "Pkarlgh." So welcome, Pkarlgh. We're just getting back from the Fight Laugh Feast Conference, literally minutes before recording, and John is sporting some stylish new Ear Gear. How comfortable are his new headphones?... Well... the Peaches gives the best des…
 
We don't know what we're talking about today, Neighbor Pkarlghl! But that never stops us from filling 45 minutes with meandering conversation... Emmi (5-years-old) treats us to a very quiet recitation of "The Elephant." Then we get ready to open the mailbag. This week, someone mistook John's youngest daughter, Tabby, for his wife. (Awkward.) And so…
 
Hi, Neighbor Pkarlgh! (That's you, Listener.) Give us a moment to fix our mics and grab a glass of water. John wrote something about an Atheist Chaplain at Harvard, and it was shared on Facebook more than 130 times... We confess to being a little surprised by how surprised Christians seem. This is not our first time encountering "Atheist Spiritual …
 
We are laaaaaate, Neighbor Pkarlgh! It has been a busy weekend at Vacay with Comics. (And, also, our microphones weren't turned up...but that may have been a smaller percentage of the problem.) Vacay was a success, despite Luke and Joe trying to ruin our reputation with alcohol. Completely unplanned, both John and The Peaches are talking about Pare…
 
Welcome to the kitchen table, Neighbor Pkarlgh! Our houseguests are physically in the house with us, for once. Normally, when Juan and Melodee are in town, we selfishly keep them all to ourselves, and we talk and play games without recording anything. But, today, we're sharing a portion of our conversation, in which we discuss speaking TRUTH withou…
 
Welcome to the kitchen table of The Comedian Next Door! John is sporting some stylish new tech equipment that you'll just have to imagine. We have three, separate pieces of mail to read--the most important of which declares THE PEACHES WAS RIGHT about something. But, also, John's comedy could cure generations of insomnia, according to a certain cri…
 
Hi, Neighbor Pkarlgh! As you probably don't know, John has a Dry Bar special which periodically goes viral on social media and doesn't impact his career in the least. Be careful if you think you want tons of followers on social media! Internet popularity will NOT lead to fulfilment. This leads to a possible opportunity for the Peaches to be in a Wh…
 
The Peaches is pretty distracted, as it's almost lunchtime and the whole family is gathering after church. John reads some mail from a Neighbor who regrets learning how comedy is made... Sometimes accepting the truth requires a full grief cycle. Next, John shares a quote from a preacher asking for help engaging the young families who have started c…
 
Today, we're talking all things "education" with Jesse Sumpter! Parents have a responsibility to educate their children--but too many of us are abdicating our roles to the nearest government school building and hoping a Christian disciple emerges in 12 years. We are so excited to pick Jesse's brain about how to inspire fellow Christians to band tog…
 
Tabby is at the table today. She's John's OTHER daughter (and the Peaches' sister). Good luck figuring out which voice belongs to which sister. We kick off the conversation with an email letting John know there was a sliiiiiiight problem with his 3-minute devotionals this week. (Oops.) Then--the Peaches shares an excerpt from a self-help book about…
