Welcome to Pop Culture Redemption, a podcast determined to help the Church have better vision for God’s working in Popular Culture. In today’s episode, the show welcomes its 2nd ever guest Lizzie Caron to help balance out boys' negative bias towards all things Hallmark. Jordan activates his flamethrower, Jacob has never thought about the Roman Empire, Connor sings about his existential crisis, and Lizzie wants you to text her in advance of asking ‘how she is doing.’ Oh, also, Jordan and Connor have a dance party. Plus, Hallmark gets compared to Casting Crowns, Thomas Kinkade, and a mirror, all in the same episode! Do you agree? Listen to find out!!
