A rundown of why evolution matters to faith with an interview with professor and author Karl Giberson. Karl is the Science and Religion professor at Stonehill college and author of many books such as Saving Darwin and Worlds Apart: The Unholy War between Religion and Science. Join us for part one of our talk as we delve into the importance of critical thinking. It’s an insightful discussion about how Christianity and science shouldn’t be put at odds with one another. We’ve also got What’s Good // What’s Bad chronicling the interweb’s best and worst of the week. Buckle up for a wild ride as we skewer through life, culture, and spirituality in the face of a changing world.

This  weekly feature gives you the best of what’s good and what’s bad out there in the snarkiverse. This content is explored more in-depth on our weekly radio show, Snarky Faith, so you should check that out too. Without further adieu… here’s your rundown this week of the good, bad and ugly of the interwebs. Enjoy!

• Oh, John Oliver, we missed you. Returning from hiatus, the Last Week Tonight host came back with the bang that we all needed. John may have found one of the few ways to influence our megalomaniac Orange POTUS… through a slew of commercials (made by Oliver and his team), set to air on MSNBC, CNN, and Fox news against their morning news shows in the Washington, D.C., area – because we know Trumpy uses cable news as his official daily briefing. Enjoy.

• Need some inspiration? Need a pep talk? Check out Denzel Washington’s eloquent speech a the Image awards. It gave me all the feels. Thank you, Denzel!

• Can we save the planet, one burger at a time? Pat Brown seems to think so. NPR did a fascinating story of one man’s journey to make the best veggie burger that looks and tastes like a real burger. Is this a step towards saving the planet? Yes, and it’s a delicious one. [NPR]

• I’m not sure if I’m disgusted or impressed. “Hammer Head” John Ferraro crushed his way to a record earlier last week for the Guinness World Book of Records. What did Ferraro do? Well, he pounding 38 nails into a board with his skull in under two minutes. Yep, you heard me correctly. And we all thought our President was thick headed…

• Lastly, you can stream Ryad Adams’s new album, Prisoner over on NPR. It’s beautiful, vulnerable and heartbreaking. I may be a biased, fanboy, but I really loved this album. You’re welcome (in advance). [NPR]

good // bad

This is a new weekly feature giving you the best of what’s good and what’s bad out there in the snarkiverse. This content is explored more in-depth on our weekly radio show, Snarky Faith, so you should check that out too. Without further adieu… here’s your rundown this week of the good, bad and ugly of the interwebs. Enjoy!

• When one thinks about the state of Mississippi, what comes to your mind? Progressive thought? A full mouth of teeth? Perhaps, indoor plumbing? Well, none of those may be standard in MS, but State Representative, Tom Weathersby, has finally found the key to fixing the armpit of the United States and [spoilers] it’s not deodorant or education. Weathersby’s contribution is putting a stop to… [wait for it] saggy pants. God bless our public servants their ineptitude knows no bounds! [Huff Post]

• Like Starbucks coffee and immigrants? Well, this is for you. Starbucks has said it will hire 10,000 refugees worldwide in next 5 years. It’s a beautiful, bold move that has some boycotting the franchise. Well done, Starbucks… you’ve always had my gold-card-love business and will continue to do so!  [NPR]

Stranger Things won big at the SAG awards with is amazing in itself, but David Harbour’s (Chief Hopper) speech brought the house down. It was eloquent and timely. Bonus points for Winona Ryder’s coked out reactions while on stage. Wino Forever! Sadly, no one thanked Barb for her sacrifice. RIP Barb. You are not forgotten.

• Feeling like you took a bottle of crazy pills when you read the news lately? Well, all I can offer you is some delightful escapism. Ryan Adams covers Radiohead’s Karma Police as an anthem of dissent. It’s beautiful, haunting and timely. Adams finds gold in the ashes & fire of our current crisis.

• I know that everything seems wibbly wobbly right now, but David Tennant assures us that everything will be alright. He is The Doctor, so I’m inclined to believe him. Allons-y!
