Deeper is a podcast considering the forces that shape our culture. Are the movies we watch, the cultural practices we participate in, and the music we listen to influencing us in more theological, psychological, and sociological ways than we might initially be aware? And here are the rules: there are no rules. We are NOT looking to find an answer, simply exploring and humoring different theories.

Very interesting. I definitely had not thought about some of the things the guys discuss on here especially for a "zombie" show but we do need to be more aware of the violence our kids today are exposed to and maybe a little more vigilant in what they watch and play on video games.
These are worth listen.
I am probably bias towards these guys but they are putting out some awesome material.
Something New and intriguing
These guys are doing something no one else is doing out there! Seriously, what is our culture's media communicating to us, the conusmers? I'm intrigued. I'm hooked. And I can't wait for more episodes.
