About this Episode

I’m not going to lie, I had red flags. I watched “The Road to Edmond” and realized that it was a Christian movie about 15 minutes in. Let’s face it, I am a heathen and it’s a little intimidating when one is facing two theologians, one of which has a “Dr.” In front of his name. Fortunately, the movie was good, and not just good as in “it’s a Christian movie” good, but actually entertaining and endearing. More fortunately, David and Tripp are incredibly great guys and are progressive Christians, which means that they are inclusive, not exclusive, with their faith and appreciate humanity and humans for being diverse, not shun them for it. These are my types of Christians!

Tripp Fuller also has a podcast called “Homebrewed Christianity” where he talks about faith, theology, philosophy and beer. It’s a really interesting show and a good listen. It’s not preachy, it is very interesting, and I am enjoying it a lot.

You’ll hear about how David figured out a way to make a buddy movie during a literal road trip and how Tripp became an actor on the set of this movie. They also had a chance to completely take over the show and did not use the time to sell everyone on vertical marketing, which was another feather in their cap. “The Road to Edmond” premieres in LA on July 29th at Landmark’s Regent Theatre. Check the show notes to get a link to buy tickets. If you can’t make it to LA… make sure to watch this movie when you get a chance… it will surprise and delight you!
