In this week’s episode we tackle the controversy over NFL personnel protesting the National Anthem. What’s it all mean and what is an appropriate response? We also consider why the billion dollar American Christian fiction industry doesn’t export so much to other nations. Plus, a fun cameo from a very special guest making his first appearance by phone on the Storymen.

Our co-host Clay got engaged over the summer! We welcome his fiance Jen to the show to get the scoop on how they met and how he popped the question. Plus, Jen joins in on our PPOWs and of course displays her Geek credentials. It’s probably the most heartwarming StoryMen ever!
