In Episode 57, we kick things off by announcing the winner of the Episode 56 giveaway Jeffery Perry and introducing this week’s giveaway: A copy of Disciplines of a Godly Family by Kent and Barbara Hughes.
Next, I discuss the reintroduction of Crystal Pepsi into the market, and how you can find a 20oz bottle near you. I also discuss some fun I’ve been having playing around with Ubuntu 16 and trying to get it to do everything I need for podcasting. Except for video editing, I argue it’s a viable solution for podcasting and anyone with a Windows Vista or earlier computer looking for a step up.
Then we turn our attention to two articles I read the past two weeks. The first, by Newt Gingrich which discussed the “right” of Americans to be safe. I contend that so far being a “right,” safety is a responsibility that comes with liberty. To give that responsibility to the government is to relinquish certain liberties along the way.
That corresponds to another article I read about London, England, creating the first police task force to monitor online-bullying or “trolling.” This may sound like a good thing to reign people in on social media, but is this just the entry point for government overreach and regulation of the Internet?
Finally, I discuss a listener question about the distance between theology and worship. Do we accept theology in our music that we wouldn’t accept in our pulpits? I say yes, and give an explanation as to why.
