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.

Although we're exploring running for President (see our Platform for America at: http://damnthatmakessense.com) we weren't invited to the recent Republican debate. Never fear, we've taken five key questions or ideologies from the debate and answered them here in five minutes (more or less -- accent on the more).

Tune in as we respond to the GOP ideology by answering the five following questions...

1) What's your greatest weakness?

2) 10% flat tax will skyrocket the deficit how would you make the numbers work?

3) How do you explain that your tax plan is similar to Ted Cruz?

4) Should the retirement age be raised to keep social security solvent?

5) Republicans argue that government rarely works better than the private sector. Hence the need to make govt as small as possible. Why are they wrong?

Carl and Mike take on 5 questions about Q — (it’s more than a letter — it’s a religion) and their often talked about proposal to start the Church of Q.

Q isn’t a church yet, but it is a state of mind. Join Carl and Mike as they share their thoughts about religion and the tenants of Q as they answer the following five questions…


1) What is Q?

2) When it comes to God why is “I don't know" the honest answer?

3) What do you have against faith?

4) Are there any holidays in the Church of Q?

5) What does it cost to be a member of Q?
