Show Notes

"Then, even if your beginnings were modest, your final days will be full of prosperity." — Job 8:7

Welcome to Apocrypals, the podcast where two non-believers read through the Bible, but aren't, you know, jerks about it. Join comic book writers Benito Cereno and Chris Sims as they embark on a complete, non-sequential journey from Acts to Zephaniah, with stops in the Apocrypha along the way.

Before we dive into the Good Book, though, we sit down to explain exactly why we're doing this, what our goals are, and our own history with a particularly Southern brand of Christianity.

Topics of discussion: The music of Carman, "pizza parties," Wu Tang vs. Supreme Court vs. Apostles, raps about the Gospels, St. Brightside, Paul as the Captain America of the Apostles.

Listener Notes

  • Chris identifies Benito as a "scholar of some sort."
  • Benito says that he chose the HCSB because it has a good apparatus criticus.
