In this episode, brought to you from studio 203 in Madison, Wisconsin, we interview Fr. Dave Timmerman, a Catholic priest, about the importance of keeping a childlike faith, and we ask him what was the weirdest thing he ever believed about God. We also discuss differences between being childlike and childish, hot air balloon rides, and ideas on coping with stress.
