Episode 10 – Resistance is Life

On this episode, we examine the Syrian Refugee Crisis from the perspective of the refugees that want to go home.

I interview the filmmakers of Resistance is Life. I speak with director Apo W. Bazidi and producer Goran Zaneti. The interview took place at Dances with Films 2017.


Episode 9 – My Apology to the LGBTQ Community

Last year, the Pope asked Christians to apologize to the LGBTQ community. Although I am not Catholic, God impressed on my heart to post an apology for the war Christians have waged against the homosexual community. This is my apology.

Episode 8 – Delaying the Inevitable – Improv Insights

I talk shop today. I just performed in a show at the National Comedy Theater in San Diego (nationalcomedy.com). I talk about the joy it is to have men play men and women play women on stage. The cross-gender shtick is getting old.

I also talk about how getting to the point of the conflict and making strong active choices makes for better scene work on stage.

Tomorrow…something a little more serious.

Ep 6 – I’m Right, You’re Evil

Just hours from the shooting in Virgina, I talk about the current political climate in America and our inability to debate one another in a civil manner. After reading some pretty horrible Facebook posts from my friends, I also talk about how we expect the other guy to be the better person, i.e. you first, then I’ll change.

I’d love to hear your comments. Feel free to post comments and question on the podcast Facebook page – http://facebook.com/EVBackslider. I will not respond to posts on the other platforms. Sorry. I love you.

Episode 5 – The War on Homosexuality

In honor of Pride Week, I start to expose the sin that Evangelicals have been committing against the LGBT community. This podcast warns my fellow Evangelicals that homosexuality is not the unpardonable sin, even though we treat it like it is.

Episode 4 – Getting Fired

Today’s episode was inspired by the James Comey hearings. I talk about being fired/laid off from my job of 17 years “without cake.” I go over the emotions of the event. I talk about losing my job, my friends and my legacy. FULL DISCLOSURE: If you expect me to throw people under the bus, this will not happen.

Ep 3 – Wonder Woman and Her Feminist Agenda (or lack there of…)

Today, Alan reviews Wonder Woman. Spoiler. He liked it. But many of the few negative reviews claim that Wonder Woman was not a feminist but a “weaponized Smurfette.” In other words, she was a woman in male soldier’s clothing. Do you agree? Listen to Alan’s thoughts and comment on our Facebook page.


Episode 2 – I am a Backslidden Evangelical

Warning: This is a religious episode. Brave enough to listen?

I hoped to put this subject off for a few days, but I thought is was worth getting it out of the way now. We get into this whole “backslidden Evangelical” thing. Enjoy

Is It Worth Going To College?

Episode 1 of the Backslidden Evangelical Podcast is now online and I discuss a conversation that I’ve had with a lot of people. What will college be like in 9 to 10 years, when the kid graduates from college? What will she have? A Bachelor’s degree and a $100K debt? Can she possibly get a job that will pay that loan off? Should she hope the President forgives the loan?

Do you think college will be worth going to nine years from now? Let me know what you think.
