The Need for Knees

The Need for Knees

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.

From Series: "StoryMen Season 8"

The StoryMen return with more guests, more projects and of course more arguments over pop culture.

What were you into this summer?

  • Noel Young

    It would be so awesome if you can get Richard Beck to be on the show! “Unclean” is such a good, insightful book. It discussed the tension between mercy and sacrifice and between exclusion and embrace so well. (And if you pick up his book “Reviving Old Scratch,” you can read about the “Scooby-Dooification” of the Bible.)
