Podcast: On Satire

Mere FidelityOn this week’s Mere Fidelity, Matt, Derek, and I are joined by our good friend Karen Swallow Prior for a discussion of the Christian use (and abuse) of satire. Both Swift’s “A Modest Proposal” and this analysis of ‘punching up’ in American comedy are mentioned in the course of the podcast, as is the Babylon Bee Christian satire site.

You can also follow the podcast on iTunes, or using this RSS feed. Listen to past episodes on Soundcloud and on this page on my blog.
