Today’s episode has a little bit of everything. We ponder what it would be like if The Workshop Podcast were a TED Talk, relive childhood nightmares discussing weirdly creepy scenes from kids movies, and finally talk about what Eric actually wanted to in the first place: summer church youth camps. Also featured: IKEA, some serious talk about the church, and 90s INTERLUDES!
We leave sentences unsatisfyingly unfinished on this episode. Eric asks if and how much should music artists change their style over time. I recap my thoughts about a couple movies I saw: one good (Wonder Woman) and one so-bad-it’s-good (you’ll just have to listen to find out).
It’s exciting times on The Workshop podcast as we dig into our first listener feedback (well, besides the Matt Takes Twitter account, really). You should definitely join the conversation by leaving us an iTunes review, a comment on the blog, Facebook group, or send up a smoke signal.
We also talk about why we don’t really talk about video games, and discuss the merits and challenges of regulating “screen time” in today’s world. Speaking of that, you should stop staring at this screen and just listen to our wonderful voices perhaps while enjoying nature or smashing a printer.

We put on our historian caps (historians wear hats, right?) to fulfill our promise about doing a segment on the starter Pokemon of various famous people. Then, witness the hardest pivot into lengthy, serious topics concerning theology, ecumenism, and working for social change. Yes, it’s The Workshop where you never know what you’re going to get and we don’t really either.
On this episode of The Workshop, we talk mostly summer movies – what we’re excited to see or maybe not. This was recorded a few weeks ago. Most of the movies we talk about are still in the future, but Wonder Woman came out last week and is pretty good for what it’s worth.
Also stick around for enthralling discussions about the highest tech of topics like virtual reality… and paper.
Kids these days probably don’t know about Homestar Runner and that’s a shame. Here is a Homestar Runner cartoon that probably has little appeal to anyone outside of the Homestar cult, but – hey – it’s the one I referenced during the episode, so it’s the one I’m posting. WATCH IT, KIDS.
Have you ever wondered who the Pope follows on Twitter?
Do you know the political convictions of the main characters from the Pokemon anime?
Does comedy have to be crass?
Find out the obviously definitive and final answers to all of these questions and more things you never asked on today’s glorious episode.
