Episode 4 - The Oppressed Masses

The Forest at Night show

Summary: This episode, thanks to an email from Stacey Tallitsch (author of Bare Naked Truth: on the Religious Right), I discuss the 300-pound gorilla that even my closest friends and I don't talk about -- Columbine. What were my experiences there and how did those experiences shape me; also, what lessons can we glean about how to act when under pressure to conform either physically or spiritually? And what DID happen to this little town (ha, ha) that I grew up in? So whether you want to bash Tom Tancredo, hear me get politically charged for the first time, or find out what happens when ritual instructions are not clearly stated, this episode is for you.
