In light of some recent confusion surrounding the Civil War, Clay leads us in a historical discussion of President Andrew Jackson and the causes of the Civil War. We also argue about Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 and play a new game: Generals vs Generals!

What books have you been enjoying lately?

Rick Lee James returns to the StoryMen to give us the scoop on his latest work. “The Invitation” is a communion song that invites everyone to the table. We talk about communion, worship and – since Rick is a consummate geek, too – comics.

How do you approach the communion table?

In true comic book fashion, JR. joins forces with Kate Sanchez of the But Why Tho? podcast. We watched all of Marvel’s Iron Fist so you don’t have to (the episode is spoiler-y toward the end.) We dive into the comic character of Danny Rand, talk about where the show sits in the Marvel Netflix universe, and talk about the show’s Good, Bad and Ugly. Kate is a great podcaster, and we had a lot of fun even without our regular cohosts.
