In this episode, the guys catch up about their summers: Clark started at a new church, Kevin is back in youth ministry (and graduated from seminary!), and Mike released a new book, "Lead Them to Jesus: A Handbook for Youth Workers." We're ready to dig into a new season on the podcast with episodes dropping every-other week. We react to the release of Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Clark and Kevin, as Asian-Americans, share what the movie has meant for them and why it’s been so meaningful to finally see an Asian-American superhero on the big screen.

    Episode 24: What if... It was Good?

    50:22

    In this episode coming off of the 2021 Rooted Conference, we talk about our post conference thoughts.  What stuck with us afterwards, and what is the benefit of being a part of the Rooted conference, especially after missing last year because of the pandemic?  We also dive into the first MCU proper animated show, the "What If" series, and discuss our thoughts on what we enjoyed and didn't enjoy about the series and what we found that was redemptive and helpful.  We would love your feedback, input, or questions for future episodes.Contact us on Twitter @ThanosToTheos, Instagram @ThanosToTheos, or email us at [email protected] you want to respond to any of our hosts, you can reach us on Twitter:Mike McGarry: @revmcgarryClark Fobes: @fobesmanKevin Yi: @kevinhyi

    Episode 23: What the Heck?

    31:07

    In this live-show from the 2021 Rooted Conference, we’re joined by Becca Heck to discuss an obvious question - “Why would a ministry like Rooted host a podcast about comics?” The four of us discuss the meaning and value of comics and reflect on the power of myth when it comes to the big questions of life, meaning, purpose, etc. We wrap up by sharing a few examples of ways that comics (and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in particular) has helped us initiation spiritually significant conversations with students.We would love your feedback, input, or questions for future episodes.Contact us on Twitter @ThanosToTheos, Instagram @ThanosToTheos, or email us at [email protected] you want to respond to any of our hosts, you can reach us on Twitter:Mike McGarry: @revmcgarryClark Fobes: @fobesmanKevin Yi: @kevinhyi

    Episode 22: Nerds & Pop Culture

    41:46

    In this episode, the guys talk about nerd culture and pop culture and how the acceptance of certain aspects of nerd culture show us and teach us about culture in general and how it's changing.  Walking through a variety of different nerd cultures like comic books, Pokemon, Star Wars vs Star Trek, and even Harry Potter, the guys discuss how these changes have implications in youth ministry and theology, and how as students of culture, youth works can take advantage of the "nerd culture" aspects of our popular culture among teenagers.  We would love your feedback, input, or questions for future episodes.Contact us on Twitter @ThanosToTheos, Instagram @ThanosToTheos, or email us at [email protected] you want to respond to any of our hosts, you can reach us on Twitter:Mike McGarry: @revmcgarryClark Fobes: @fobesmanKevin Yi: @kevinhyi

    Episode 18: The People's Cap

    1:13:00

    In this episode, the guys are joined by our friend Bryan Brown to discuss the Disney+ series, “Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”  We discuss what we liked about the show, where it could’ve been stronger. Since one of the central storylines of the show focused on race and whether or not there could ever be a Black Captain America, we discuss the show’s interaction with much of what’s happening in our culture today. The conversation wraps up by focusing on ways youth workers can discuss the show and its themes with students in our ministries.We also settle the issue of who won our F&WS prediction wager that we laid out in the last episode.  Tune in to find out who wins and what the consequences will be.  Post Credits Audio: Kevin's Facebook post about Cap's shield.We would love your feedback, input, or questions for future episodes.Contact us on Twitter @ThanosToTheos, Instagram @ThanosToTheos, or email us at [email protected] you want to respond to any of our hosts, you can reach us on Twitter:Mike McGarry: @revmcgarryClark Fobes: @fobesmanKevin Yi: @kevinhyi

We make a friendly wager about three predictions for the series and we hope that you would share your own predictions with us on social media too.
