After Todd visits a Comic Con, he and Scott discuss why we have such robust subcultures, what they mean for the life of the church, the joys and dangers of such, and how it is that each one of these subcultures becomes an imitation of the life in God that is the Church. Oh, and they also talk about Craig Donofrio, the Kindle Edition of LSB, and The Elfish Gene.
