Join the Reverend Jeff Smith for an exploration of the differences between collecting, being a pack-rat, and hoarding! May 17th is Pack Rat Day, and it's something we all have experience with, personal or not. The Reverend will explain the reason for the day, how collecting and the current "de-cluttering" craze aren't necessarily at odds, how to gauge where you are on the collector-to-hoarder scale, where the impulse to keep stuff lies in the human brain, and he'll talk about his own experiences, including his collections.

Join the Reverend Jeff Smith for information, and some reassurances, about the current crisis facing the world. April 15th is many things, but we're going to talk about how it's "That Sucks Day." As so much of life does kinda suck right now, we're going to commiserate a bit. We'll explain the origin of the day, why there's power in letting yourself suck, why you should stop trying to control the suckage, why sucking is okay if you're enjoying what you're doing, and the Rev will tie this examination of suckitude back to daily life.
