God of the week: Zombie Jesus. Because Easter. He dies. He fucking rises. And he has holes in his hands.

But Easter traditions spring from here (Eostre/Ostara) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%92ostre  Germanic goddess

Association of rabbits with Easter might come from the Norse goddess Freyja

This week: Dan and Nat talked about current events, goings on, the March for Science being hijacked by anti-science zealots in US Right to Know, how to not criticize someone, and “outrage culture.”
