Social Gaming, Worship Music and Bad Opinions: Paradox Podcast Episode 64
Tech trend editor and commentator Kyle Foley dropped by this week to talk about worship music, video games and millennials. Is video game culture really stopping this generation from getting jobs?
Matthias: Worship music has crushed out actual church music. Old hymns set to new tunes are fine, but stop replacing them with wishy-washy emotional songs that have no theology.

Kyle: I hate Chipotle.
