Episode 223: The Karate Kid, John Calvin, and the King of France

Two of the greatest rivalries in modern history.  Interesting fact: Both Calvin and Daniel-San defeated their foe with a semi-illegal crane kick to the face.

Hey! So we are continuing our little history-type series with talk of Geneva and France,  Real important stuff, really good stories.  We name drop in this episode more than ever before! There is music! Around 1hr in you might find more tangents and laughing than ever before!  We don't get into the intricacies of the French Wars of Religion, the theology of Calvin or any particular thing, rather, we provide a broad overview of the time and apply it to what we know and do today.  

As always, this is a free spirited conversation between two professors and is a curious combination of historical and philosophical insight and personal stories and, usually, apropos anecdotes.

The show topics vary, so we ask you to flip through like you do a magazine and see what episodes interest you.
