The Mega Church Scandal Scam with Mark McConville

Lizard People: Comedy and Conspiracy Theories

Picture this - you're a pastor at an evangelical Christian mega church, and donations are slipping. What are you gonna do? Well if Mark McConville (one of the best comedy podcasters ever to do it) is correct, what you're gonna do is fake a scandal, jet off to 'rehab', then sell a redemption narrative so compelling that Jesus Christ himself would be like 'woah'. Yes Mark suspects that some of these ministers going down for drug and affair scandals are just cynically plotting to raise more money for the church. Listen in this week for a surprisingly heartfelt conversation about the intersection between religion and capitalism, then a bunch of hot new ideas for gender neutral nicknames.

Mark McConville is Bald

Bald Talk

Actor, musicin, improvisor and comedian Mark McConville is the baldest member of the genius improv group Superego, because he is the only bald member of Superego. But that is fine by him, because Mark is down with baldness! He discusses his bald outing story that saved him from getting what is now a now Vegas trash haircut, and how a past girlfriend's over dyed hair led him to embrace the bic and shave it off. Brian and he chat about comedy origins, creative survival and prove they are terrible at Trump impersonations. Alopecia and THE SLAP are also parsed by the two shineheads. And poor Charlie misses out on all the weird life connections he and Mark share. __                                                Show Information Twitter: @baldtalkpodcast Instagram: @baldtalkpod Email: baldtalkpod@gmail.com                     Brian Huskey Twitter: @thebrianhuskey Instagram: @thebrianhuskey Charlie Sanders Instagram: @charliesanders
