With a Sunday evening sermon inside the studio, Ed and Day spread cheerful blasphemy, amusingly becoming the Drinking Pastors as they riff about religion and the church. With hip-hop artist Mars Jackson as their guest, Ed and Day get reflective as they discuss family and childhood. Mars, the first hip-hop artist signed to Pittsburgh-based Misra Records, shares the experiences that shaped his upcoming album Unemployed Faith. A self-dubbed “street poet,” Mr. Jackson explores the concept of language and self-expression, an exploration of how art evolves from the personal. A passionate debate closes the podcast as the Drinking Partners and Mr. Jackson argue the merits of Eminem, with Ed the lone dissenting vote against him. An exciting episode that changes course from thoughtful to rambunctious.
