Interview with Morgan Spurlock :: Two special guest hosts on the podcast , the week’s news and entertainment, slices, your feedback and more…


This week on the podcast, we feature an interview with Morgan Spurlock, the guy the behind “Super Size Me” and the executive producer of the new docu-comedy, “What Would Jesus Buy?”

Here’s the trailer:

We also read your feedback from the question, “If you could make any law, no matter how absurd, that would be enforced strictly, what would they be?” Here’s some of your responses and other assorted feedback:

For the betterment of humanity, I would pass a law outlawing sports. No broadcasts, games, or magazines.

But, because I’m a nice guy, I would include a clause allowing for a single stadium in the middle of the Australian Outback where fans could go. I was going to make it Antarctica, but the Outback is a little easier to get to (told ya I’m a nice guy.)

You may ask yourselves "But why, Mark?" Because all the jocks I ever encountered as a kid were jerks. 🙂

As for Jesse’s stories: I, like, totally live for Jesse’s stories. Especially one’s involving squirrels. 🙂

Mark Harris

Thanks for the kind words about my storytelling; I now feel really bad for making fun of you law on the podcast.

My law involves one of the things that annoys me the most, people who drive slow in the fast lane. If you want to drive the speed limit, that’s fine, but stay in your lane and let the rest of us risk getting a ticket. Perhaps we could equip all vehicles with some kind of mechanism that would extend out the front of the car and move those pesky Sunday drivers out of the way, but that could just be me watching too much Transformers.

1 Corinthians 13:13

I looked up 1 Corinthians 13:13, and it said nothing about any kind of battering ram.

I would out law baby on board signs. As a new mother I can sympathize with the getting it as a baby gift. But when you display the baby onboard sign in your car you are either saying one of two things;

"Be careful don’t hit my car because I have a baby! (no matter how old they are at that time)" to which I have to say, if that really worked and people drove more carefully around you should we not all put these on whether we have children or not, who really wants to be in a car accident.

Or

"Excuse my erratic driving, I have a child and I am either asleep at the wheel or dealing with a fussy child or I have just plain lost my mind!"

Also, those “Jesus is my co-pilot” bumper stickers should be mandatory.

I am happy for Ryan DeBauch who is married and told you last week in the Podcast that he would marry Relevant Magazine if he could.

Well, I’ll tell you what! I’m single and if Relevant Magazine was personified in woman form, she would be the girl of my dreams … and my awake time. She would obviously be all about Christ. She would be attractive on the outside and her true beauty would radiate from within. I’d continue to be amazed by her insights and concern for topics ranging from social justice to hip music. Our dates would be very affordable. I’d tell all my friends and even people I don’t know about her. I would want to listen to everything she has to say…even when she’s talking about a sweet deal on clothes. I’d carry her across the threshold of my house with an enormous smile on my face…just like I do when I get my magazine in the mail.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, I love Relevant Magazine. And unlike Ryan who jumped the gun, got hitched, and missed his chance, I consider Relevant Magazine Worth The Wait.

That is a flattering email … and very creepy.

Please outlaw all "wood" on the outside of mobile vehicles. Why do people still think wood paneling on a car is good?

Roby Davis

We’re sorry, but you are dead wrong. Wood paneling was the pinnacle of automobile design.

I was going to say outlaw those heelies, but since that was already mentioned (I’m glad I’m not the only one who hates those things), here’s my second choice.

Any one using a headset for their cell phone must have a t-shirt that says, "I’m not crazy, I’m on the phone."

Travis Mamone

Good call Travis. All Bluetooth devices should be confiscated along with pinky rings, white dress pants and moc-turtlenecks.

Don’t forget to place your vote for who should be a guest host on next week’s episode of the RELEVANT podcast. Go here to vote of Lloyd (designer) or Ryan (sales/groundskeeping).
