    The Homosexualization of America [08/14/11]

    EPISODE #46

    A fun and creative interview; the BPR hosts simply says a word or phrase and then our guest, Dr. Michael Brown, talks about it till he is content with his answer (or we hit a break). Then we ask follow up questions. All of the phrases come from the chapter on “Stifling the Scientific Debate” from Dr. Brown's new book “A Queer Thing Happened to America".

    Sunday School with Atheists [08/07/11]

    EPISODE #45
    A CRITIQUE OF ARIZONA'S ATHEIST PODCAST KNOWN AS 'DESERT AIR'. We review the first episode of an Arizona-based Atheist podcast called Desert AIR; especially their misguided analysis of the Book of Revelation and Christian eschatology. We critique the hosts for not interpreting the text in a serious way, as the panelists are naive about basic New Testament issues (such as the fact that it was all written in Greek!).

    Al-Quaeda’s Bookshelf with James White [07/31/11]

    EPISODE #44

    What kind of things do these folks read? An interesting exploration into the motivating factors for these men. Hear the rationale they have for their actions from their favorite authors and take a glimpse into their minds to see what ultimately drives these men. Dr. White is a very engaging speaker and very well versed in Islamic thought.
