Watch out! Dizzy & Ges are about the get theological up in here with a deep dive into the sweet, filthy mystery of the incarnation. Because once the tree has come down and the twinkling lights are off of the garage, what we're all left with is a tiny, little God-child who needs to grow up and save the world. So pour a glass and raise it to Mary & Joseph as Church Drunk tackles God-in-the-Flesh!
It's officially the shortest week of Advent and arguably the greatest week of the whole year! Before opening your presents and sit down to your Christmas turkey/goose/ham/prime rib/tofu (don't want to leave out our vegetarian brethren!), join Dizzy & Ges for a tipsy look back at our Advent journey, and raise a glass to the hope that Christmas brings!
In the midst of the hustle and bustle of holiday chaos, it can be a challenge to keep your eyes on the prize. But December the 25th is coming, and Dizzy & Ges are here to light your way to a truly joyful Christmas as we continue our Advent Examen. Pour yourself a cup of cheer and join us as we keep our O (it's not as dirty as you think!).
Church Drunk's big ol' Ignatian Advent Examen adventure continues as Dizzy & Ges step out of the darkness and into the light. Join us as we wait in joyful, inebriated hope...and also discuss magical Advent calendars!
'Tis the season to be jolly...and stressed...and sometimes a bit disgruntled...and perhaps occasionally flying into fits of rage about the many injustices of the world, not the least of which is one's inability to just find a damn parking spot already! But if there's one thing we get right about the holidays, it's that we start it all off with a day to give thanks. Join Dizzy & Ges as we officially kick off a new season of Church Drunk by counting our blessings (but never our cocktails - some things are best left uncounted).
Did you miss us? After a bit of a sabbatical, the Church Drunk podcast is back in action with a long-overdue bonus episode/introduction to the upcoming season. To help us celebrate the launch of a new chapter in Church Drunk history, we are joined by two very special guests: Mrs. Ges and Baby Ges! So grab a cocktail, put it in a baby bottle, and let's do this.
Here at Church Drunk, we are big advocates of words. In fact, we use them regularly. However, we are first in line to admit that we don't have all the best words. That honor, in our humble estimation, goes to Tom Robbins. And if you want to explore some of the best words that Mr. Robbins has to offer, then we strongly advise you to pick up a copy of Jitterbug Perfume, a book about perfume and time travel and immortality and falling in love and pagan gods and so much else. Or just listen to Episode 47 of the podcast. Dizzy & Ges will fill you in!
The Church Drunk Summer Reading List officially kicks into high gear as Dizzy & Ges tackle the first book on the list - The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon. If you have ever thought to yourself, "Hey, what if Sitka had become Jerusalem West during World War II...wouldn't that be cool" then this is the book for you! So pour yourself something cold and kosher (if that's your style) and pull up a chair for Episode 42!
Eastertide has arrived! And with it, 50 days of feasting replace our Lenten fast. Congratulations, you've all made it to the pot of gold at the end of the grayscale rainbow that is Lent. Join Dizzy & Ges in this very special feast-centric episode of the podcast, in which Church Drunk seeks to answer the age-old question of what exactly will be on the menu when you take your seat at the Lord's table. Enjoy!
