April 29th, 2018 - National Honesty Day

If you’re like most people, you’re utterly sick of the complete lack of honesty that exists in the world today. Whether it’s companies using misleading language on their products (Blueberry Muffins, contain no blueberries) or politicians being incapable of telling the whole truth of a situation, our lives are utterly inundated with a world of people and companies trying to sell us a line. Join the Rev for a celebration of Honesty Day, Monday, April 30th, which exists to encourage people from every walk of life, and especially those in charge, to try being honest with their constituents and customers. He'll talk about the history of the day, why honesty is so important in the modern world, why society won't function without trust, the truth about lying, and the Rev discusses why honesty truly is his best policy!

April 22nd, 2018 - National Firefly Day

Alright Browncoats, it’s time to go out into the black and gather up those lost souls who have yet to experience the wonder that is Firefly. Firefly Day, April 24th is dedicated to shameless pandering of our beloved show, and indulgent marathon watching of the series from beginning to end. After all, we have to keep spreading the signal or people may never know the dangers of Reavers, or the real story behind the Hero of Canton. The Rev'll be talking about the day, the story behind the entire Firefly series, how the program came to be, why the fandom is even stronger now, a decade and a half later, and the Reverend will reveal how Firefly actually changed his life.

April 15th, 2018 - Amateur Radio Day

Tuesday, April 24th, is Amateur Radio Day! Long before the invention of the World Wide Web, when instant communication was a dream and a postal letter was actually considered a pretty speedy way to communicate (outside of the phone), there were a group of pioneers who were working on a dream of world-wide communication, and anticipating the joy of communicating with people all over the world instantly. Amateur Radio Day reminds us of these great pioneers, their modern descendants, and how radio has been serving a worldwide community for well over 100 years.

Although he's been called away for another Sunday morning event, he's left a brand-new show for everyone, focusing on the two holidays that share the 1st of April in 2018.
