Some serious genius going on here with a show that is painfully funny while also critiquing religion with a seductively sweet tone that pulls no punches. The subtext is amazing. It’s Colbert but about faith, capitalism, Evangelicals and Americans. Congrats on this incredible work!
Some of these episodes are GOLD! And some are duds. Strikes and gutters, man! Regardless. The best episode is Episode 2, with that amazing gal from SNL. I never went to a megachurch but was raised Assemblies of God in the 80’s and 90’s, same age as Halley and Gray no doubt. Halley is my favorite, everything she says is precious and insightful!!! This show is probably most fun for ex-church folks but could work for anyone with a sense of humor. It’s all covered in the blood. KEEP ROCKIN 4 JESUS!
I found this podcast after Holly's interview on Andrew Gold’s podcast. I was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness and find this podcast resonates deeply. It makes me laugh while helping me deconstruct some of the toxic beliefs I was raised with. Thank you so much for this podcast! You’re truly doing the lord’s work 😉
I cannot recommend this podcast enough!! Ever since I started listening, I keep working my way through the whole catalogue again and again. The improv is hysterical and I always notice new lines or jokes when I re-listen. The religious commentary is nuanced and so on point - every single exvangelical out there would defintiely love this podcast! It’s incredible to listen to something so healing AND so hilarious. Thank you Holly and Greg for creating something so wonderful!! PLEASE never stop making more. PS. Day for President!
Just hilarious - the comedy and jokes are SO specific and such deep references about the church.
Your pod was recommended by another podcast I love, Wife of Crime. They said we should give it a listen especially if you grew up in the church. It’s hilarious 🙌🏻
If they didn’t have the disclaimer at the front about being a satire, you wouldn’t know. Ring so true
It’s reaching onion level of satire accuracy. Just tipping the reality to higher levels. If I didn’t know it wasn’t satire/comedy I would question if it was an actual Christian show.
Improv is usually a coin toss of funny luck as to whether I am chuckling or zoning out into unimaginative ways to mow my lawn next week. Thankfully this podcast has some very talented folks that steer the dialogue into unpredictable dialogue and catchphrases that keep me smiling and sharing it with others I feel will feel right at home at Twin Hills. I hope you find it fun and enjoyable too.
Your podcast is quickly becoming on of my favs. Hilarious content and great hosts and guests!
I was raised in an atheist home in the Deep South, and this is so hilariously spot on to what I saw around me growing up. I love it!
As someone who grew up inside of the Evangelical world and has gone through deconstruction and kissed that world goodbye this podcast makes me giggle and not alone in the journey.
I’m an ex Mormon and found this so funny. It reminds me of ridiculous lds members. So good this is improv
This podcast is so funny but it also has been a really helpful place for me to examine my own past growing up with the church. It’s been really eye opening in a way I did not expect and I’ll be honest, there’s moments that I realize OH that’s where that anxiety comes from! I recommend it to almost everyone I know in person and definitely recommend it to all internet strangers.
Daniel Van Kirk brought me here. Subscribed after hearing the 10 second promo clip. This show is in my wheelhouse on the boat to Jaffa.
Seriously one of the funniest things I’ve ever listened to! Who knew one church could have so many personalities in it?!
You need to get on patreon bc the mega minis are amazing!! So much thought provoking content.
This podcast has tapped into the insanity of the evangelical experience with such insight and hilarity.
It’s true. I listen almost exclusively to true crime but make an exception for this podcast. It is such a palate cleanser! So funny, and has the actual pulse of US conservative mega churches. I have shared it with many, and even created “best of” lists for each of the different years they’ve been making shows to get my friends started. ☺️
I love the comedy, but this show has been a bit of a life preserver. It’s gotten me to expand my reading list (mega mini), opened me to new ideas and got me into therapy. I’d have to say I’m feeling too blessed to be stressed.
Right now this is my favorite podcast. I’m on the verge of becoming a patreon supporter just to get more of their content. This is genius.
Mega podcast is the best thing ever. I'm obsessed and no longer dread my loooong commutes thanks to this clever and hilarious show. BRAVO!!!
This podcast is hilariously relatable! For those of us who grew up in and then left the evangelical mega church world, it is an absolute must. Shines a light on the ridiculous messages we bought into and gives us a laugh over it all, a break from the existential crisis caused by a lifetime of fear. Thank you for this!!
Just discovered this show and it is laugh-out-loud hilarious. It is binge-worthy with a huge back catalog that’s going to keep me busy for a while. The more churchy your background, the funnier it is. Every line channels my time spent in youth ministry as a student and a leader and long car ride with a mother fond of Christian radio. I am partial to Halle’s son Day - who is “Awesome” no matter what Gray says.
