In this episode, Jayson and Bryan explore the first red pill (a play on words off the movie Matrix) offered to the first blind man ever healed. When we peel back the layers on this miraculous event, we see that what was the most liberating experience for this man was also naturally a great loss as well. Job loss, family rejection, and community excommunication also came from this eye opening experience. We see a family that was more concerned with saying the right words than speaking the truth out of fear of the community leaders.
We explore this and share stories on the transformation and cost of having your eyes opened.
In this episode, Jayson and Bryan explore the difference between knowing about God and knowing God as a Father.

This and more in this episode.

In this episode, Jayson and Bryan venture into the story of the iconic boxer James J. Braddock, also known as Cinderella Man. We break down his life story from his birth in New York's infamous Hell's Kitchen, living through the Spanish Flu Pandemic, losing everything in the Great Depression, and from the bottom rising up from extreme poverty to becoming the world boxing heavyweight champion. A man of deep faith that lived out his principles and would not compromise to the easy way out.
A great example for our current day. The question is why do we not have these kind of heroes emerging today, or have we created a society that villainizes those who would dare hold true to their values in spite of all the odds?
The quote that best summarizes this episode is from Father Charles Rorick:
