Barnhardt Podcast #046: Byzantine Vespers and Smoked Salmon

February 17, 2018

In this episode we discuss Lenten fasting and Catholic Legalisms, what to expect (and ask) when you're considering going Byzantine, as well as the proper protocol for a valid confession -- because, eternity. Some more resources and recommendations for Lenten reading and listening were discussed and SuperNerd eats some humble pie regarding citing scripture and says something about an IBO which will be a topic for the podcast in eight weeks or so.

Barnhardt Podcast #045: Abeyance, Biathlon, and Chaos

February 11, 2018

In this episode we discuss the ongoing sellout of Chinese Catholics by those in power in Rome, the case of Bishop Juan Barros' promotion by Bergoglio when both Chilean and CDF (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) authorities had significant evidence of Barros's crimes against nature, and why it's good to pray for those didn't die a holy death (because prayers are never wasted in the Divine Economy).

Barnhardt Podcast #044: Dividing and Conquering Church Traditions with Modernist Bee-Ess

January 25, 2018

In this episode we discuss the antics and power politics in play between Rome and the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association (CPCA)**, especially the significance of the current Roman Bishop in White ordering a duly-appointed Bishop in China to step down in favor of an excommunicated, schismatic member of the CPCA. As long as a given tactic of Satan works he will continue to use it, and the “divide and conquer” tactic is one that has worked all too well throughout human history. We also discuss how “Divide et Impera” has played out in the Church Militant from Apostolic times through the current day, with an emphasis on the formation and early history of the Society of Saint Pius X and what is currently known as Traditional Catholicism.

**Yes, SuperNerd got the name of the ersatz Catholic Church in China wrong twice… and he’s chagrined and embarrassed about that.

Barnhardt Podcast #043: Shadow Ban the Pig Wrestlers!

January 17, 2018

In this episode we discuss the recent revelations that Twitter actively engages in shadow-banning of conservative and "redneck" content, both through machine learning and manual intervention, as well as Twitter employees reading the "private" messages and content of users of the service. Additionally we question whether these social media platforms are even needed for conservative writers or if they are counter-productive sources of interruptions where the trolls and "pig wrestlers" love nothing more than to mix it up and get people annoyed. We also talked about social media as a vector for precipitating a Black Swan event -- hacking the right twitter account and posting fake news could cause more real-world effect than an accidental ballistic missile warning!

Barnhardt Podcast #042: Fasting From Off-Color Titles

January 13, 2018

In this episode we discuss fasting — though we do abstain from bringing it up for almost half an hour while we cover some news concerning cyptocurrency, “latrine-crater” countries, the legally expedient reason why Hillary Clinton’s concubine is staying legally married to Anthony Wiener (and why he needs to fear for his life). And then we covered fasting and how it is MASSIVELY beneficial to both the body and the soul, as well as how fasting can apply to all appetites, not just food. And at some point SuperNerd gets loose with his Biblical proof about lightsabers too.

Barnhardt Podcast #041: Eleven Thoughtful Themes Thoroughly Threshed

January 5, 2018

In this first episode of the new year we whittled down the original list of eleven topics and ended up with: Dow 25,000 and other Wall Street fictions; Steve Bannon doesn't like Trump, his kids, or anyone else apparently; North Korea could set off a continental war with their rocketry hobby (with a generous side-bar on the Persian empire past and future); and if you're reading this your computer has vulnerable hardware. Oh -- and narcissists, narcissists everywhere!

Barnhardt Podcast #040: BitCoin Bubbles, Beef Bartering, Bacon, and Booze: Believe It

December 28, 2017

In this episode we discuss BitCoin again: the wild fluctuations in its price, the massive (and growing!) carbon footprint of the global computer network that supports it, and a generous helping of side-topic discussions about price discovery, price stability, arbitrage, liquidity and in the cattle and pork belly (BACON!) markets as well. And since it's a non-Halal show we discussed alcohol a bit as well before wrapping up 2017 and looking ahead to 2018.

Barnhardt Podcast #039: Let Net Neutrality Die, Kill It If You Must

December 23, 2017

In this episode we discuss the recent repeal of the Obama Administration's regulation on net neutrality and why this is a good thing, Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox and why this is a bad thing, Ann breaks down the blasphemous and scandalous nativity scene in Saint Peter's square, and SuperNerd vents on the demise of Star Wars (from a certain point of view, of course).

Barnhardt Podcast #038: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

December 11, 2017

In this episode we discuss lies and the lying liars who lie them... err, tell them. Whether it's DDoS attackers lying to internet service providers that their traffic is legitimate, parents who tell their kids that Santa Claus is a benevolent breaking-and-entering artist, or NBC news in general or Matt Lauer in particular, liars are going to lie and when you tell enough lies then Faith suffers or dies. And don't neglect the Sacrament of Confession where Truth and our hope in joining the Church Triumphant is restored!

Barnhardt Podcast #037: Satan’s Smorgasbord of Secular Substitutions for the Sacred

November 28, 2017

In this episode we discuss a very non-exhaustive list of ways that modern man seeks a substitute to fill the God-sized hole in his heart, namely though consumerism, politics, fantasy, entertainment, and sports. Whether we're making gods of our bellies (Philippians Chapter 3) or pursuing pseudo-intellectuals as our idols and role models, or worshiping the temple of the Holy Spirit instead of the Godhead who ought to be dwelling therein, man's heart will never rest until it rests in God, no matter how strenuously we strive to the contrary.
