Pre-Shownotes Note for episode 106

I have a bad habit of fucking around and not getting the shownotes up right away the day the episode comes out.. And in my defense, when I say fucking around, I mean not finishing all the editing and stuff until 4 am and then passing out before I can take care of anything else.  But I wanted to make sure nobody who checked in before I got caught up missed this one.

At the open of the show, our friend The Anonymous Dr. Steve discusses his appalling perversion of justice he’s trapped under at the moment.  If you want to help, please take a second and sign the petition linked below.  And by all means, share it all over your social media.  This is one of those things that should piss off even your Christian friends and family (especially the non-Catholic ones).

Good luck, doc…

      A thousand apologies, Dave. Just so you know, if the episode isn’t up in our archive on time, you can always find it either through iTUnes or Stitcher, or directly from our libsyn site, which I’ll add as a link at the top of the archive. Thanks.

    The one thing you forgot about Ash Wednesday is that it spawned one of the greatest secular yearly events ever: Mardi Gras (or “Fat Tuesday”). Growing up in New Orleans, I always thought it was incredibly ironic that devout Church-goers like my grandma would participate in Ash Wednesday and would “Pray for the sinners” who partied both on the day of Mardi Gras as well as the three weeks of partying that precedes it. Not one of them were Mardi Gras’ers themselves, and neither were any of the Mardi Gras partiers putting schmoot on their foreheads while battling through hangovers the day after.

    The two holidays however were originally connected. Fat Tuesday you are supposed to get all the partying out of your system in preparation for Ash Wednesday and Lent which followed immediately after. The only connection in reality anymore though is that Mardi Gras also shifts wildly on the calendar every year along with Ash Wednesday and Easter.
