Don’t let the title fool you; this episode of Radio Worldview encompasses television shows as well. We begin with Bill Jack discussing two recent, highly-acclaimed movies: Hugo and The Grey. While The Grey is both “nihilistic and blasphemous,” according to Bill, it sketches an accurate picture of the consequences of turning your back on God. After more discussion of worldviews reflected in movies, Jeff tries to defend some recent television shows, including “Alcatraz” and “Life on Mars.” Bill is skeptical.

Radio Worldview hosts Bill and Jeff love tangents, as our regular listeners know, but sometimes they fall a little too in love with tangents; when that happens, you get episodes like this one. What do they discuss? What don’t they discuss? Bill explains why you can’t call “flip-flops” that name anymore, Jeff talks about what he’s reading now, Bill discusses using puppets to reenact courtroom scenes, Jeff outlines his great books reading program for students in the logic stage, both men compare the “strengths” of USA Today with The Wall Street Journal, and then they finally answer listener mail. This leads to a brief but heated discussion about whether you can trust what any candidate says during campaign season.
After another rousing edition of “Roadkill Cafe,” Radio Worldview hosts Jeff and Bill read some listener mail and then dive back in to the presidential election. Can a case be made for voting for Mitt Romney? Ever? Does Rick Santorum have a chance, and does it matter? We know that the presidential election is ultimately in God’s hands, but it still matters how we behave as stewards of our votes. Time to duke it out again!
