BCC Zeitcast 44: Doh! A Deer!

Download this episode (right click and save) In this edition of the BCC Zeitcast, Scott B. and John C. aim to be less boring than the last episode and discuss Sunday School, Valentine’s Day activities in Utah Valley, Deer Hunting, and more Deer Hunting. Also, John C. pretends to be Ronan. ‘s Brilliant, Mate!!

Also, as a one-time bonus, there is a really awkward 10 second long silent period around the 6:50 mark! I have corrected the silent stretch, and changed the MP3 file name to be more user friendly.

BCC Zeitcast 43: The Return of Ronan

Download this episode (right click and save)

Just in time for Christmas, Scott, Kathy, and Ronan trim your trees and stuff your stockings with unapologetically long and boring banter about Band-Aid, Bond, and Babes. Also, Ronan makes Kathy weak in the knees, first by singing, and later by reading from 2 Nephi. Ronan and Scott try to talk about the Seven Habits of High Effective Churches until Kathy forces them to quit, after which Scott discusses why Christmas is dead to him, Ronan teaches us about his key ingredients to clever, meaningful gift-giving (deception, theft, and being cheap), and Kathy spends thousands of dollars for a free iPod.

After last week’s excitement, we felt that a quick turnaround was needed to keep the children happy before Christmas, and a bonus Zeitcast/Poll Combination should do the trick. In this edition, Scott B. and Cynthia L. sever ties with Tiger Woods before discussing Stake Christmas concerts and engaging moral dilemmas about shopping on Sunday, babysitting, and cooking with alcohol. Cynthia then sets forth judgment on the Bloggernacle’s status as a full tithe payer.
