S1E3 - Cain & Abel

J. and Sue welcome David Waters to discuss this story of brotherly violence and jealousy. Plus, we meet the world's first recorded mansplainer!

Episode Notes

J. and Sue decide to spice up the podcast by inviting David Waters, a minister at King's Chapel in Boston, to bring his perspective to this iconic biblical story of an older brother murdering his younger brother in cold blood. Cain is banished on account of all the murdering, and in his banishment he gives birth to a line of creatives, culminating in a very bad poet named Lamech who, like all bad poets, really wants women to listen to him. We'll even tackle the begats -- that notoriously boring lineage log. And while we might not make that part fun (Sue might actually fall asleep during it), we at least make it SHORT. Finally, it's all worth it, because a baby is born, and he's going to fix EVERYTHING.

Next episode up Jan 13th (every 2nd and 4th Wednesday).
