[102] Interfaith Relationships: Not Really a Controversial Episode

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

I really should write a script which says “Sorry for the delay in posting; ________ got in the way.” Because that’s what happened this time. This podcast was recorded on February 15 — the day after Valentine’s Day! The day after the day celebrating love (which technically is also a day to celebrate love. Like the other 363 days of the year. But anyway…)

So: We finally get around to talking about interfaith relationships and what our respective communities think about them. And why. Are attitudes changing? Are there certain challenges when a relationship or marriage crosses cultural or religious boundaries? We take a look at some of the relationships of those close to us and discuss.

We want you to support us in so many ways: of course there’s the Amazon Banner at http://www.heythatsmyhummus.com/amazon. Click on it and shop like you normally would on Amazon.com. We just get a little help. Also? Warby Parker’s great deal is still on! You can click here for further info: http://www.warbyparkertrial.com/hummus .

But enough about helping us: I mentioned a company which I decided to plug because they’re awesome and they’re going through a rough time: Blüprint Chocolatiers is a local business in Alexandria, VA which has absolutely delicious treats. They happen to, by no fault of their own, be in the spotlight as they now share a building with professional hater Rich@rd Spencer. And some people have gathered that there is a connection between the chocolate shop and the racist tenant (which there is not). So — they deserve a lot of love. (And they’re working on an efficient means for delivery!) Check them out…

And, naturally, you can reach us at the usual places: https://www.facebook.com/HeyThatsMyHummus/ and @ThatsMyHummus on Twitter. And our iTunes page is searchable. And begging for your five star reviews.

[66] Fooling People on the Internet, or the “Catfish”

Tags: , , , ,

Besides being a Southern staple, a catfish is the new slang for people who misrepresent themselves on the Internet.

Wait.

How do you know we are who we say we are?!

OMG. How do WE know we are who we say we are?

Don’t worry, we are. Mostly.

This week, we discuss the “catfish” in sheep’s clothing.
