Episode 22 — “The Dark Knight of the Soul”

Play

How could an episode about The Dark Knight Rises from a podcast about Christianity NOT use this as the title for their podcast.

(Apologies to St. John of the Cross, of course.)

So, it’s been a while coming, for a variety of reasons (scheduling being the main one), but here is our DOUBLE sized episode of Strangers and Aliens. And in this monster-sized edition, we tackle a monster sized topic! The conclusion to the epic Dark Knight trilogy by Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale, et al. There is so much meat to talk about here that we couldn’t cover it all!

Because of scheduling, Ben recorded two parts of the conversation . . . one with Dr. Jayce and the second with Steve (although, considering how long it took Ben to get the episode ready, it may have been easier just to wait a week and find some better times to record, but we digress). So this episode does have a clear split in the middle. But the conversations are very different, and cover different aspects of the movie.

We hope you enjoy this episode, and we hope that it inspires you to nod in agreement or yell at your iPod. Either way, we want to hear from you We want you to be a part of the conversation! Heck, that’s WHY we do this! Contact us here or just go to our home page and record a message! (Ben is especially curious what people think about the ending of the movie.) Like it? Love it? Hate it? Let us know!
