Ami, Mistie, and Alex talk about their experiences with a recent high school class reunion and the awkwardness of running into old teachers while doing normal adult thinks (like having low-key drink).
Two ladies and their friends talk about their experiences growing up Adventist and leaving the church. They discuss both positive and negative experiences with irreverent humor and complex perspectives.
A podcast about the godless life from an ex-Adventist perspective. There may not be life after death, but there is life after Adventism.
Ami and Abby talk about politics.
We’ve talked about this a lot, and we’ve decided that episode 150 will be the last episode of the original podcast run. It will then go on hiatus, possibly forever, although we’ll keep the feed up. Listen to the episode for more details.
Abby, Ami, and Debbie talk about watching The Exorcist. The scariest thing in the film was brain imaging before CT scan, which…holy shit guys! Apparently this movie was made just one year before CT scans came along. Neurologists really did perform direct carotid puncture to inject dyes into the circulation to image the brain back then, and they really did something called pneumoencephalography. They injected air into the CSF via spinal, which would rise (as air tends to do) and make the brain more visible via X-ray. As a person who performs modern spinals, Abby comments that this would produce the mother of all headaches and possibly brain damage. A truly horrifying film.
Abby’s back! Ami and Abbie talk about coming out at work, dealing with relatives, and terrible Christian gifts.
