Anathema | Dr. John Sanford
I have been preaching the gospel of Evolution for years. But no longer. This interview with eminent geneticist Dr. John Sanford has changed my mind on the most axiomatic scientific belief currently in circulation: that all life evolved over millions of years from a common ancestor. Refusing to accept this widely held scientific belief is considered anathema. I'm glad you're along for the ride. IG: @nickstumphauzer

The Madman
Diving deep on this episode. I have more questions than answers. Which seems to be the new norm for me on this journey. What is it like to lose your religion? It goes a little something like this... I want to hear from you. @nickstumphauzer on IG @nstumphauzer on Twitter (you have been warned) And nick@nickstumphauzer.com for emails.

Who is The Prodigal?
Welcome to the Prodigal Podcast! The only unfiltered, unchained, uncensored, and unbiased dialogue on belief and god you’ll find East or West of the Mississippi. I am your host, Nick Stumphauzer. It’s good to have you listening. What is this podcast? The behind the scenes, the show notes, the captain’s log of what’s going on in my mind as I make this film The Prodigal. It’s one sided talk therapy. You will hear about the struggles I’m experiencing personally while making the movie, as well as the intellectual battles I’m fighting. I’m also opening this up to debate to all of you listening. If you have a brain with thoughts in it that are different than those bopping around my brain, let’s debate. You can hit me @nickstumphauzer on IG which is where I’m most active. Or Twitter @nstumphauzer. This podcast gives you an opportunity to change my mind and also for you to show me the areas in which I’m being intellectually dishonest. I am opening myself up to the dissection of the entirety of the internet to try and prove me wrong and show me where I’m being biased. Because I almost certainly am about most things. But today is an introductory episode. Just to onboard you all into this crazy journey that’s about to take place of making The Prodigal documentary. I can't wait to get to know you all and begin to build this community!
