Talking about Bible stories is often fraught with scholarly nerd alerts about ancient linguistics and inaccessible theological discussions centered around hermeneutics. But what if there was a way to use your pop culture literacy to enhance your biblical literacy. What if you could recap the Bible like you recapped your favorite TV show? Welcome to the Bible Binge hosted by Knox McCoy and Jamie Golden of The Popcast.

Watch your language because in this latest Sacred Cinema episode, we’re talking about Avengers: Age of Ultron. Join Knox and Jamie as they unpack this very expensive conclusion to Phase 2 of the MCU. Along the way, you’ll hear some potential incest concerns, a critical analysis of Elizabeth Olsen’s character work, and Jamie’s attempt at a Russian/Sokvian accent. Is this a worthy successor to the original Avengers movie, or are its sins unforgivable? You’ll have to listen to find out!

Grab your punch and cookies because we’re talking all about Vacation Bible School. Join Knox, Jamie, and Erin as they discuss whether this summer church staple is favored or forsaken. Along the way, you’ll hear lots of hand motion talk, a surprising VBS history lesson, and Jamie’s most traumatic church experience ever. Is VBS a picture of what the church does best or a problematic childcare service? You’ll have to listen to find out!

In this very special episode, Erin sits down with her daughter Holland to have a discussion all about what it is like to be the child of two parents who are de- and reconstructing their faith. Holland and Erin explore questions like why church is important, what adults should know about faith for kids, and if candy is a viable option for lunch. This episode is perfect for anyone who has ever asked questions about their faith.

In this very special episode, we invite you to listen along to our Faith Adjacent Book Club in which Erin and Evan chat with Beth Allison Barr all about her book The Making of Biblical Womanhood. You’ll hear some fascinating history lessons, incredibly helpful answers to listener questions, and tips on how to be a better Bible scholar. Buckle up because we have a TON of resources for you in the notes below! Dr. Barr is a DELIGHT. We did not play it cool, and you don’t have to either.

Find some tape and protect your batteries because in this latest Sacred Cinema episode we’re talking about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Join Knox and Jamie as they deep-dive the second installment in the Guardians of the Galaxy saga. You’ll hear us repeatedly say “We love it, but that was weird,” as we explore things like The Sovereign as an evangelical fraternity, whether or not Missouri is in the south, and a deep appreciation for Mantis. Seriously, does anyone have tape?

In this Favored or Forsaken episode, we’re talking all about the recent Southern Baptist Convention Guidepost Report. This was originally released as a Mini-Favored or Forsaken episode on Patreon, but our Bible Binge Seminarians said that this was an episode that everyone needed to hear! You’ll hear Jamie and Erin talk about an experience that intersected with this report as well as answers to some listener questions. Just a warning: this episode contains references to both sexual abuse and suicide, so please take that into consideration as you listen.


Join Knox and Jamie along with Resident Bible Scholar Erin Moon as we discuss that bitter cryer who just wanted a baby, Hannah. Along the way, you’ll hear conversations about negotiating with God, double portions of fried rice, and some quality needlepoint ideas. Did the tabernacle have the aesthetic of an Arby’s? What’s the deal with calling God the Lord of Heaven’s Armies? You’ll have to listen to find out!

In this very special Favored or Forsaken episode, Knox and Erin are joined by author, co-host of Pantsuit Politics, and parenthetical enthusiast Beth Silvers to talk about America as a Christian nation. Not sure if you’re aware, but there’s a lot going on in the news right now. We’re zooming out a bit to have a conversation about whether or not America should be an expressly Christian nation. Is Christian nationalism turning people away from faith? Is a government that reflects Christian values a good or bad thing? What does it mean to squat on a take? You’ll have to listen to find out!

In this latest Stuff We Didn’t Get in Sunday School episode we’re talking all about baptism! Should we all be dunked? Is sprinkling the way to go? What about babies? Join Resident Bible Scholar Erin Moon along with Knox and Jamie as they explore these questions and more. You’ll also hear some love for our Quaker friends, Jamie’s academic team history, and why the church baptismal is the perfect youth group hideaway.

In this latest Sacred Cinema episode, we’re deep-diving one of the most surprising films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy. Join Knox and Jamie as they discuss topics including Chris Pratt’s faith, how Bradley Cooper’s role as Rocket Raccoon led to A Star is Born, and some of the best quotes that we want to see turned into books. Could this be one of the best ensemble films of all time? You’ll have to listen to find out!
