Podcast Rollcall: Mr. Deity

Genre: Comedy/Satire

What It's About: An unspecified (but clearly Judeo-Christian) deity deals with the hassles of managing Earth and all the life forms on it.  Constantly nagged and questioned by his ex-wife Lucy, his son Jesse, and his assistant Larry, Mr. Deity eventually makes the decisions that will dictate how life on Earth ought to be lived -- how nature sustains, why humans treat each other the way they do, and why he needs to be worshipped a certain way.

Why You Should Care: Because it questions the commonly-accepted notions of religion that are truly strange when you stop to think about them.  Creator and writer Brian Dalton is clearly bemused by the tenets of Christianity and sets out to demonstrate the more absurd points by framing "god's" decision-making process as a series of bickering conversations between a deity and those closest to him.

Frequency: Bi-weekly

Average Length: Less than 10 minutes

As always, if you become a regular listener to a podcast that solicits donations, try to find a way to make the occasional contribution.
