Wednesday May 01, 2024

In this special episode we talk with Dr Clare Craig who is a diagnostic pathologist and Co-Chair of the HART Group. We discuss how Clare came to question the covid narrative in the summer of 2020 and the response she received when she started to speak out about her concerns. We talk about covid measures, the vaccine roll-out and why many medics have failed to question the mainstream narrative. We also discuss the importance of waking up from ‘cloud covid land’ and Clare’s spiritual journey and resulting Christian faith.

Saturday Apr 20, 2024

In this episode we discuss a few examples of ‘Christian celebrities’ in the news, the ‘Lausanne movement’ and the dangers of the promotion of ‘Christian unity’ at the expense of doctrine. We have a look at the Christian media and the need to apply critical thinking to their output as well as that of mainstream media. We focus in on Premier Christianity and some example articles, showing the need to pursue truth and be discerning so we are not deceived. We finish with suggestions of smaller Christian media outlets, and a reading from Revelation 3:14-22 where Jesus warns against being neither cold nor hot.

In this episode we consider the Church of England’s drive to net-zero and increasing ‘climate alarmism’ in the church, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s message to mark the start of Ramadan, the government’s new definition of ‘extremism’ and the Church Commisioners’ efforts to ‘repair the damage caused by the legacy of African chattel enslavement’. We end with some thoughts on the recent announcement from the Princess of Wales, and encouragements from Psalm 62 and Micah 6:8.

Friday Mar 08, 2024

In this episode we consider the recent farmer protests across Europe, driven by desperation primarily over policies related to the ‘green agenda’ and the drive to ‘net-zero’, with a uniting protest theme of ‘No farmers, No food, No future.’ We look at the unrest in Wales over the proposed new ‘Sustainable Farming Scheme’, and get a glimpse of the green agenda ideology through the ‘C40 cities’ global network. We discuss the pushback including the ‘CO2 Coalition’ and the ’No to net-zero’ campaign. We finish with a call to consider these issues from a Christian perspective, with a focus on Genesis 1:24-28 and Psalm 104.

Episode 48 - DisPutin?

Sunday Feb 11, 2024

Sunday Feb 11, 2024

In this episode we re-visit the controversy surrounding Christian leader Alistair Begg’s recent advice about attending a ‘transgender wedding’, and we take a quick look at another controversy involving Canterbury Cathedral and silent discos. We then spend some time reviewing Tucker Carlson’s now infamous interview with Vladimir Putin. This raised a number of issues including history, NATO expansion, negotiations for settlement, Russian expansionism, the war-mongering of the West, the role of the media and the importance of seeking after truth. We finish with a reading from James 3:13-18 which reminds us to seek God’s wisdom and not the ‘wisdom’ offered by the world.

Friday Jan 26, 2024

In this special episode we talk to Aaron Edwards, who describes himself as a ‘theologian in academic exile’ after losing his job at a theological college following his now infamous tweet expressing a Biblical view on sexuality. We discuss the importance of being ‘shamelessly biblical’, the dangers of cowardice in the church, the term ‘outrageous grace’ and why many controversial issues we face in our western culture are indeed gospel issues. We hope this will be a challenging and encouraging episode for all of our listeners.

We focus in on a few of their topics for this year including ‘Sustaining Life on Earth’, ‘Fixing Healthcare, Digitally’, ‘Net Zero Industries’ and ‘Preparing for Disease X’. We end with a dissenter in the ranks calling out the elites at Davos, and a sobering passage from Galatians 1: 6-12.

Wednesday Dec 13, 2023

Wednesday Dec 13, 2023

In this episode we discuss the official UK Covid Inquiry, and contrast it with Andrew Bridgen’s impressive effort to convene an expert testimony panel. We consider the ongoing issue of excess deaths and why this is not being investigated with urgency. We look at the cost of taking a stand and speaking out for truth, and the dangers of staying silent. We finish with a mention of the ongoing situation in Israel and Gaza, and the COP 28 deliberations which included statements from the Archbishop of Canterbury and King Charles. Finally, a reminder from Psalm 24 that the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it!

Friday Nov 17, 2023

In this special episode we speak with Professor Norman Fenton, Emeritus Professor of Risk at Queen Mary University of London. Norman has been a beacon of critical thinking through the last few years, bringing clarity, reasoned analysis and compelling evidence to issues around covid and net zero, and at some considerable personal cost. We discuss his work highlighting issues around covid testing, vaccination and excess deaths. We then discuss his recent concerns about anti-semitism in the ‘Freedom Movement’, and his personal insights as a Jew with many family links to Israel. We conclude with the need for more understanding of the complexities of the history of Israel, including for Christians, and the importance of standing against anti-semitism.

Episode 41 - No replacement

Thursday Oct 19, 2023

Thursday Oct 19, 2023

In this episode we discuss the unfolding situation following the recent attacks by Hamas on Israel, and why it is important to approach the issue with a Biblical worldview. We talk about the way the conflict has been portrayed in the mainstream media, and the tensions which have arisen within the ‘awake’ arena. We conclude with a focus on the Bible and how God speaks through it to us today, and a reminder from the beginning of Romans that both the gospel and God’s judgment are first for the Jew and then for the Gentile, with salvation only through faith in Jesus.

About Owl & Badger

We are friends of over 20 years and we're both followers of Jesus Christ. We started this podcast in 2021 as a response to what we could see happening in our country and churches. We all have a worldview through which we see and understand the world around us. As Christians, we think it's of vital importance to observe, interpret and understand world events through a Biblical worldview. This is essentially what this podcast is about. We are not claiming to always be right, but we are seeking after truth and discernment. We hope that in some way, this will be an encouragement to you.
