7 – The One Where Everybody's Anxious
Taylor & James talk about living in the age of anxiety and how they deal/cope/manage with their experiences. Long story short: no one knows what they're doing, but they're throwing a lot of shit against the wall to see what sticks. In this chat: anxiety, panic, depression, existential despair (obv), "smart brain disease," prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs, experiments in mindfulness, the materiality of religious practice... and then it went off the rails and we decided we should just turn this into a book club podcast. Stay tuned on that front.

6 – LGBTQ+ w/ Riki & Xander
After a long hiatus, the gang is back to release a belated episode for Pride Month. We technically recorded it in June, but the editor (Taylor) is breathtakingly lazy. Here's what to expect: A Ken Burns-esque brief history of Pride (I don't know if that's problematic) Riki threatens to homewreck a cop Personal experiences with growing up, coming out and finding community in a hyperconservative area 🏳️‍🌈

5 – Calvinism & Hobbes idk
The politics chat was too incendiary, so we switched to religion, thank god.  James is back on to talk about our shared experiences of growing up evangelical, the off-ramps where we got off the narrow road, and the slippery slopes we're on now. Stuff that comes up: the Southern Baptist church, reform theology, Calvinism, Rob Bell,  mysticism, Blue Like Jazz, liturgy, Jeb Bush, Simone Weil, existential despair, Trotskyism, can people who smoke cigarettes go to heaven? (probably not according to the bible *shrug*) and, honestly, not much more. Intro: https://soundcloud.com/isaaccammack/its-all-good  Outro: A blues solo from my dad. He's pretty good and should play more often: https://soundcloud.com/taylorcammack/an-afternoon-jam-feat-casey

4 - Sufjan Stevens, or, There's No Way a Straight Man Wrote the Owl and the Tanager
To be alone with you, we recorded a damn podcast.  Taylor is joined by not-enemies Riki & Xander to discuss the life, work and biceps of renowned musical artist Sufjan Stevens. This is the "Impossible Soul" of episodes – incredibly long and probably better listened to while under the influence. It's too much. You should have known better. But if it's the only thing keeping you from driving your car, half-light, jack knife into the canyon at night, I guess you should keep listening.    28:15 – Michigan 40:50 – Seven Swans 57:35 – Illinois 1:12:20 – The Avalanche 1:17:00 – All Delighted People 1:32:35 – All Delighted People, continued 1:36:55 – The Age of Adz 1:55:20 – Carrie & Lowell 2:28:00 – Call Me By Your Name

3 – James & the Giant Peach President (trump lol)
Taylor is joined by childhood friend and smart guy James Camp to have a heated discussion about their diametrically opposed political philosophies. It was supposed to be a retrospective of the 2016 & 2018 elections and a look forward to 2020, but we got caught up on the Trump part (of course), so the rest will have to wait. My laptop dies at the end, you can't miss it. Intro: "It's All Good" by Isaac Cammack Outro: "Help Me Die" by Apollo Wild

2 – Council of Nicaea 2: "Kacey Musgraves' music is now Christian canon deal with it"
The fellas, both self-titled "musicians," drone on for awhile about the metaphysical nature and value of making songs and stuff. In an abrupt turn, Caleb "goes after" Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. Taylor likes Kacey Musgraves and doesn't know who/what Little (Lil) Dicky is.  Intro: "It's All Good" by Isaac Cammack Outro: One of Caleb's songs, I don't know or remember the name.

1 – The Case Against Dez Bush
In this episode, Taylor and Caleb discuss things we 100% believe, such as Adnan Syed's innocence, Dez Bryant's infamous non-catch, and GW's involvement in 9/11. None of this should be construed as sarcasm. If you think we're "joking," we WILL call the police and you WILL go to PRISON.  Intro: https://soundcloud.com/isaaccammack/its-all-good  Outro: An original tune by Caleb.
