SecularPerspective

Click to listen…

This week we discuss mental health issues in America and how people are dealt with when they have a breakdown. We also find a church that tells its older members to stay away to attract younger members. And we end with a newly developing case of a woman and her missing kids and potential ties to a new mysterious cult.

Picture this: Chad has worked 24 hour hours in 2 days and is exhausted, has a sick kid and is cleaning the house and doing laundry. Amanda shows up hours earlier than expected with no laptop no real stories to specifically talk about, but is in a rush to get something recorded and just wants to vent about the week and only has 30 minutes to do so. The following is what resulted from the mayhem.
