Hour of Slack #1323 - Secrets of the Church (14X-Day 6: Dr. Hal, Father Joe Mama, Ivan Stang, live 7-1-11)


We pick up exactly where we left off last week, continuing a detailed discussion by Dr. Hal, Father Joe Mama and Rev. Ivan Stang of the porta-potties or chem-toilets at Wisteria Campground Community in Southern Ohio, where the Church of the SubGenius held the 14th (actually 16th) X-Day Drill.  The discussion meanders all over the place, from that fearlessly detailed discussion of the campground toilet facilities to the nature of consciousness, quantum mechanics, Buddhist philosophy, global climate change, abortion, 2012, and even "Old Sequa," the monstrous thousand-year-old snapping turtle living in the depths of the Wisteria Bobtismal Pond. Every subject of any possible interest to nerds, scientists, religious fanatics, professional athletes, monster fans or highly attuned New Age Secret Masters is also covered, albeit sometimes in code. The important thing is that this was an hour that I, Stang, didn't have to edit much, thus granting me an entire WEEK of Slack to spend on experiences entirely unrelated to any of the above, such as the laundry.

Nonstop streaming of all SubGenius shows! -- past and present, hosted by Rev. SlanderBob:

NOTE: THE HOUR OF SLACK is released in two versions.

The X-RATED "INTERNET VERSION" contains all original "fucks," "shits," "God damns," etc., and this is the one which is downloadable from SubSITE and which is sent to individual subscribers OR non-American radio stations.

All American radio stations are sent the "PG RATED CENSORED VERSION," which has the Bad Words either reversed, bleeped, or replaced with the spoken word "Bob", depending on what works best.

The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry seeks to brainwash you totally into abject lifelong subservience to The High Epopt and Living SlackMaster, J. R. "Bob" Dobbs, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
