Jon Acuff and Beautiful Eulogy

Author, speaker, blogger and podcast-favorite Jon Acuff joins us this week as a guest co-host. We love it when Jon does a podcast with us, and this week we even get him to play against a listener in a "basketball-themed" game. We also introduce you to one of our favorite new hip-hop collectives, Portland's Beautiful Eulogy. You might already be familiar with them as they produced Propaganda's last album, but their debut solo album, Satellite Kite, is a lyrical and musical achievement you definitely don't want to miss out on. Oh, and did you know that you can download it for free? A free podcast AND a free album? You're welcome...

Question of the Week

Who else would you like to see guest-host this podcast?

We love it when Jon Acuff comes on to guest-host the podcast with us, but it got us thinking about other potential guest-hosts. So this week we want to know who else you would like to see come on and guest-host the RELEVANT Podcast with us. And don't just give us names, but tell us why you would like them to guest-host and, in the event they agree to come on, what we should do with them.

I would love to see Jon Foreman guest host. I believe he would be a fun guy to talk to for a few hours and that he would have a lot to say about many different issues ranging from music to faith. Either him or you know, Toby Mac...

You guys should totally get Wally from the Wally Show on WayFM. He will give you a run for your money on what is truly funny, plus he also has Jon Acuff on his show doing bits. He is the guy that has saved an otherwise normal Christian radio station. In other word it would be a meeting of awesomeness.
