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.
I love this podcast so much!! Growing up in church and purity culture - it’s nice to have comic relief for some of the messed up ideologies and things I endured. A good chuckle listening to this podcast can really turn my mood around. :)
This podcast is hysterical and sadly reminiscent of my childhood growing up a pk in the Baptist church. 5 stars.
This show is truly bingeable. I can’t get enough of Mega! If you grew up in a toxic church environment, this show is super cathartic. If you have an awesome relationship with your church, this show is a great poke at the things we can find funny about mega church culture. Highly recommend.
…you will have a come to Jesus moment when you listen to this podcast. Or at least you’ll laugh really hard. I often replay the most hilarious bits to my partner because everyone loves it when they are forced to listen to podcasts while they are brushing their teeth. My favorite part is the upfront chat with the hosts and we learn what’s been happening in CLIMAX!!
Their ability to satirize evangelical culture so well just astounds me every episode. The threads of Grey’s many relationships (+CMB), my son Day, and the seemingly never-ending amount of bizarre church staff make me come back every time.
Is it actually sponsored by exxon mobil? That would be a deal breaker. Its a hilarious podcast, and it would make sense if that ad was a joke. The only reason for the 4 stars is sometimes its too real, its kind of sad.
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.
These people are doing the lord’s work by sharing the good news! I’ve been saving my change for a few years now so I can make a trip to Twin Hills Church. Look forward to the day I can come worship with y’all!
Just found Mega…omg, are you kidding? How do you guys come up with this stuff? So clever. Over the top awesome, love it, thank you!
The MEGA podcast is a treat and a pleasure. Whether you come for Gray’s updates about his youth ministry, “Climax!”, Halle’s reports on trying to fend off her son, Day’s scriptural critiques, or a steady stream of church employees sharing their oddly Godly perspectives, every episode is a delight. It’s a Pod thing.
Mega will help you unpack and repack all the crazy stuff you were taught in church and reaffirm your faith in the actual "truth" that smart people shall inherit the earth and comedy is actually the way, the truth, and the light!
Love this podcast. I laugh every episode and look forward to them coming out. A MUST Listen!
Listening to the Chris Gethard episode, absolutely dying right now. “I went down a dark path.” Hahahaha
Love this podcast so very much! My partner and I listen every single Sunday! To me nothing is better than fun, cleaver comedy. Lots of laughing. I'm an ex christian and for me, this is perfection.
This podcast is perfect in every way! Almost too real. I grew up in the evangelical church and it brings back so many memories of living every day with cognitive dissonance. I particularly love her son Day.That was the best episode ever. I could relate to these conversations I used to have when I was a teenager with authorities in the church.Day should have his own spin off podcast.
Not one who grew up with a lot of religion in my world (I grew up around “We’re spiritual, not religious” folks) has not slowed down my enjoyment of this podcast one bit! It’s amazingly smart, hilarious and the fact that it’s improv only leaves me that much more dumbfounded! Their guests are awesome and have never disappointed! They are so brilliant and spot on! I mean, “My son, Day” how can you not love it!
This is the most brilliant satire. Anyone familiar with American evangelism and critical thinking will love this podcast.
