Sam and Becky remotely welcome Johnathan Arriola as they talk about hotdogs, religion in the era of social distancing, and the mystery of Trump’s religious affiliation.
Thoughts on if there will be a religious resurgence post-pandemic or an exodus? There’s a joke in there somewhere…[Also], why do some people feel that doctors and science can be so wrong that they lick doorknobs? -Daniel from Tacoma
I see many folks wearing gloves to protect themselves. COVID13 gets into you via mucus membranes. You touch an infected item, then touch your eyes, nose, mouth with or without these gloves, you’ve introduced the virus to yourself. Like writing the combination down on a locked combo lock, false security.. -Paul from Ashford
In response to how our listeners are doing: We’re fine. My lovely and talented wife is sewing masks at the moment. I’m starting work on a technician class training course. Social distancing makes classroom training unworkable, so I guess it’ll have to be online. -John from Idaho
Wipes and Sprayers… -Shawn from the Internet
The reason for [why hotdogs com in 10-packs but bun are 8 to a pack] is obvious: The other two sausages are for the non-human weenie-roast participants. For those unfortunate individuals without furry housemates, may I suggest slicing them up and pan-frying them? -Jennifer from the Internet
I’ll have to remember the hot dog and bun thing for the next time someone tells me the universe is finely tuned. -Victor from the Internet
Sam & Becky, from the safety of their home, welcome remote guest host Shujin Tribble as they contemplate parody ceremonies for cats, criticize craft store antics, and say bye (finally?) to the saga of Coach Joe Kennedy. Also: hotdogs.
Why do hot dogs come in packages of ten, but hot dog buns only come in packages of just eight? -Owen from The Internet
Covid-19 has largely shut down our work, and we’re looking for ways of being upbeat, silly, and have some minimal time with a few friends–a total of 6, including ourselves. Just so people don’t take my head off: everyone who is invited to this has been isolating for the past week. We’re not seeking fun at the expense of social responsibility. What we are celebrating: our cats become “mature/adult” cats. So we decided to throw a Catceanera party for one, and a Cat Mitzvah for the other. Any suggestions for activities/ceremony/gifts for our fun loving, irreverent cat celebration? Ever a fan (and happily a patron), Colin -Colin from Seattle
How [do I] kindly respond (or not?) to loved ones who post religious faith statements and images? Do you just ignore? And how [should I] respond to prayer requests for loved ones of loved ones. Hoping for creative, kind yet honest suggestions.-Mary from Pierce County
I was listening to your Of Faeries and Fish episode, and wanted some clarification. In the episode, you guys mention a part of the Bible in which Jesus whips people selling stuff in the temple. Can you clarify which part of the Bible that is?-E. Nix from The Internet
What is an atheist?-Arrbey from Facebook

Best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten? -Justin from Tacoma
Becky, Dan, and Luke discuss hoaxes, state legislation, college, Salish Sea conservation, rebuffed preachers, and mo(o)re.
Becky, Justin, and Dan ponder the important questions of whether Jesus would beat up Bolton, if witchcraft brought down Kobe’s helicopter, whether your D&D group is a Canadian church, and the extent to which steel melts water fairies. And also coming out to religious parents, and the problematic nature of farmed salmon.
Why do some people think Obama lost the popular vote in 2012? I see this from Trump supporters on social media. -Bradford from Utah
