What’s this podcast all about? Well everything important. And nothing in particular. In between all that, we solve world problems. Micromanage each other’s personal lives. Tell stories. Riff on social and cultural happenings. Predict the future. Mock ignorance wherever we find it. And generally rant, rave and question the things you’re not supposed to talk about in “polite circles” – especially politics, sex, and religion. After seven years of having coffee and great conversations every Friday morning, we thought you might enjoy our chats as much as we did, so we decided to launch this podcast! Join us for an always authentic, hopefully enlightening and entertaining conversation.

Carl and Mike tackle three subjects near and dear to their hearts -- politics, sex and religion. In this episode Carl and Mike try to answer the following five questions in just five minutes...

1) Who do you think will be the dem and GOP candidates and their running mates in the general election?

2) Is sex on a first date more socially acceptable?

3) What would Jesus do if he were in your shoes?

4) Who will fill the political humor void now that Jon Stewart is gone?

5) Do you have any fears about being wrong about your spiritual beliefs? Explain.

Carl and Mike discuss the unwritten rules of polite society when it comes to talking about sex, politics and religion. With a dive into the shame around talking frankly about sex. The dance we do around politics, and the weariness about someone sharing their religious views. It’s a reluctant, frustrating and revealing conversation about the conversations we’re not having.
