Run Amok with Rex and Chuck
A couple of guys from southern California, getting together to discuss just about anything, from church life and the Christian faith, to geeky pursuits like creating your own board game or writing your own fiction novel.
S2 Bonus 2: Political Mash-Up
In this short bonus segment, we get to hear some of Rex and Chuck's thoughts on politics, the political system and the state of our great nation. We have a lively conversation about the presidential race of 2020, even though by the time this is released, that's sort of a done deal (maybe...). And guess what? Even though we disagree on some things, we remain friends! We love and respect each other, as Jesus taught us. Hope this brings you some levity in these uncertain times.
