About this Episode

Join us this week as Gordon reveals his new recipes for meatless Friday fasting, Clint makes dad jokes, and we discuss the hit Netflix series and comic 'The Umbrella Academy'. The show reveals the consequences of a life apart from the father; desperately seeking love but often falling into deadly sin and temptation. With all of this we emphasize the need to find a family and a home for our oddities where we can experience love and a relationship with the father. #WelcomeToTheAdventure
