Hipsters, the Bible and Batman this week on Irenicast. The team gets into a deep discussion of the nature of Biblical texts, what interpretation means, and how to treat ancient sacred texts with respect. Also, Mona and Allen play a round of Missing Link, while Jeff plays an entirely different game.
