The Plugged In Show, Episode 150: Laughing With The Skit Guys (and Crying Over Mumford’s New Album)

blog top 10-06


Ecclesiastes 3:4 tells us that there’s “a time to weep, a time to laugh.” We do a little bit of both in this installment of The Plugged In Show.

We’ll start with the laughter, as I sit down and talk with Tommy Woodard and Eddie James, a.k.a. The Skit Guys. We chat about their first movie (Family Camp) their long friendship (they met in high school) and the special difficulties that come with encouraging Christians to laugh—sometimes at themselves.

And then we talk with our own Kristin Smith about Marcus Mumford’s self-titled solo album that wrestles with one of the most difficult subjects imaginable: the sexual abuse he suffered when he was just 6 years old.

So listen in and laugh with us, cry with us and engage with us. Chime in with your own thoughts on Facebook and Instagram. You can send us an email at [email protected]. And as always, check out all the show notes below to dig deeper into everything we talked about.
