First and foremost, God vs Man is a comedy podcast. Sometimes things will go dark, and many times things will go blue. However, I feel as though many might find something of benefit here, even if it is a face palmingly cringe sometimes.
To make a long story short, I was born into a fundamentalist religious culture with an abundance of golden calves. These golden calves weren’t necessarily literal, but they were essentially things that could not be questioned, let alone even talked about. This led to living in some fairly nefarious religious and social structures built around me. As I left I noticed that there were plenty of these same golden calves outside as well.
For those curious about the name, God vs Man isn’t meant to be a religious podcast, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t at least influenced by my relationship with religion. It’s certainly not your Joel Osteen, “find victory with a porcelain white smile” podcast. While at the same time, it’s not a militant atheist, “religion is cancer” podcast. The name has a multiplicity of meanings. Ranging from the internal theological struggle that people wrestle with to the absurd “kid with a magnifying glass over ants” image of God. From man’s unlimited arrogance about things so much larger than himself to God’s futile obsession with why gay guys like having sex with each other so much. But in the end, the podcast is titled “God vs Man” because “The Weekly Mass Shooting Podcast” was already taken.
This world and life has a lot of beauty in it, but at the same time it also has a lot of shit, too. This podcast is a feeble attempt to clarify some of the ambiguous stuff right in the middle while also trying to have a laugh. Lest we end up finding ourselves putting shit on a pedestal. Wait a second, did I really just use the word “lest”?
