For the first ever LIVE Bible Bash, Peterson, Liam, and guests, take on the topic of Biblical Bottoms. Who is a bottom in the Bible and what does that even mean?? We talk bottoms, tops, subs, doms, power bottoms, agency, consent, and much more. Hear about Jonah, Hagar, Samson, Delilah, and others. It is a fun, informative, and insightful conversation.
This episode is very different from previous ones. In mid-December 2020 Bible Bash held the very first LIVE on-line event. It was a chance to converse with listeners while discussing a topic--Biblical Bottoms in the Bible! As a result, we had many voices contribute to the conversation.
For the "Other Text, Peterson's husband, Glen Retief, read, The Museum of Stones, a poem by Caroline Forché. (Copyright © 2007 by Carolyn Forché. Originally published in The New Yorker) Glen is the author of the Lambda Award winning memoir, The Jack Bank.
Another difference you will find in today’s show is the sound quality. Since we conducted this meeting on Zoom, the quality is not the typical Rock Candy Production standard audio. It is such a rich conversation though, we hope you will not be distracted by the click and zips that happen at some points.
Enjoy this presentation which was recorded live on December 15, 2020.
Many thanks to the guests that showed up! Thanks to those who spoke out: Autumn, Don, Sherri, and Penina.
