May 15, 2020

Part 1 of a 2-parter--This week, we're talking about Theo Durrant, the man all the mamas at Emmanuel Baptist Church wanted their daughters to marry, and boy was that bad judgment. 

Plus: cursed pastors, an attempt to cast a doppelganger, and Scott's preferred method of being stabbed. 

P.S. Stay tuned for a special bonus mini this week--and patrons will get it early! Watch this space on Thursday.
