December 2nd, 2018 - Disney Day

Join the Reverend Jeff Smith as he delves into the media giant that has influenced our lives, possibly more so than any other in the history of media! December 3rd is Disney Day, a day to look both fondly and realistically at the company started nearly 100 years ago by Walt Disney. Let the Reverend explain why there's a day to celebrate something so all-pervasive, discover the top-ten animated Disney films of all time, look at Disney through a feminist lens, discuss the best of Disney's live-action work, and reminisce a bit about how his childhood was made so much better by having Disney in it!

November 25th - Chocolates Day

Join the Reverend Jeff Smith as he celebrates that heavenly brown or white substance that makes our lives bearable even during the most difficult times! November 29th is Chocolates Day, when we hail whoever it was who split open the first cocoa bean and decided that, with a little sugar and maybe some milk, it would be pretty good to drink! We'll look at the celebration, why chocolate is good for you (in moderation, of course), the history of chocolate, what chocolate actually does for your body, and finally the Reverend puts a chocolate war to rest once and for all!

November 4th - Gunpowder / Election Days

Join the Reverend Jeff Smith for a look at two important consecutive days! November 5th is Gunpowder Day in Great Britain, a day to remember the plot by Guy Fawkes to blow up Parliament, an act of rebellion that, while perhaps understandable in theory, was fortunately uncovered and stopped. But November 6th is our own day of Rebellion, in a much more civilized way, of course. It's Election Day, when we have the opportunity, the responsibility, to choose who represents us in various offices of government, whether Federal, State, Local, or all of the above!

October 21st - Punk For a Day Day

Join the Reverend Jeff Smith for a truly unique day, celebrating a truly unique type of music! Punk For a Day Day, celebrated on October 25th, was established to celebrate the long and storied history of Punk Rock. This amazing and powerful counter-culture movement completely revolutionized rock music and the face of the musical world at large. All of this on the heels of the revolutionary hippie movement, the punk rock movement took the hope and light of their predecessors and rolled it together with a rage-filled cynicism the likes of which would make Nietzche proud.
