This week we talk to author and pastor (not to mention Justin Bieber buddy) Judah Smith. He has a new book out called Jesus Is ___, and it’s one of the most talked-about books this year. We also spotlight singer/songwriter, Sandra McCracken. She’s performed on the podcast before (with her husband, Derek Webb), but this week we talk to her about her new album, Desire Like Dynamite. Other “highlights” include Jesse’s preparations for having a baby, stopping a Dunkin Donuts drive-through mugger and compelling infomercials.

If a mugger tried to interrupt your “Bullet-themed-party,” how would you conquer the mugger and what would your catchphrase be?

The “Original Magic Bullet” is the current darling of infomercial television. And in completely unrelated (but equally important) news, a pretty sweet catchphrase was formed after a Dunkin Donuts drive through teller threw hot coffee on a would-be mugger (as he ran away she yelled, “Go run on Dunkin!”). So we thought, why not put the two stories together and ask a pretty epic question of the week? Well we did it, and now this is what we want to know from you. If you were at a social function where the “Bullet” made an appearance, and suddenly a would-be mugger appeared on the scene, how would you conquer the mugger, and what would your catchphrase be?
