Welcome to Dispatches from the Buckle. This week we begin thinking about eschatology. We begin with Odessa Settles singing a wonderful version of 'I am a Poor, Wayfaring Stranger' from our very first Tokens Show. After that Lee C. Camp, your host of Dispatches, gives you the first-in-human-history-so-far-as-we-know-with-absolutely-no-research-to-back-up-that-claim Seven Minute Speed Lecture. In it, Lee introduces terms like 'telos,' 'neo-platonism,' and 'new heavens and new earth,' which you can casually throw about during your next lunch-break conversation. We close with our Most Outstanding Horeb Mountain Boys' rendition of the 'Cherokee Shuffle,' featuring Aubrey Haynie on fiddle.
We hope you enjoy this episode of Dispatches. Be sure to let all your friends know about our socio-cultural experiment here. Remember, you can subscribe to Dispatches from the Buckle on ITUNES. And be sure to follow DISPATCHES ON TWITTER for all the latest.
