The Chad Garrett Show - Fighting the Good Fight

Some phrases used in our lives don't make much sense. For Chad Garrett, "Fighting the Good Fight" has always been one of those phrases. That is, until an analysis of the Culture War made it click. Join Chad as he explains the game theory behind the culture war, and why Conservatives MUST keep fighting, even though victory doesn't seem possible.

The Chad Garrett Show - Men, Masculinity, and Warfare

"Violence is good" , "Men and women are made for different things" , and "What if men need something to fight for" are just a few of the stand out lines delivered by Chad W.

The Chad Garrett Show - Mocking the Devil (Part 3)

Chad Garrett takes us on a deep dive of the third letter in C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters highlighting the most cohesive letter in the early parts of the book and explaining exactly how Lewis approaches the conflicts we find with those that we live closely with. Satan works in a pincer movement on us, both influencing our views of ourselves and of the world around us. This keeps us from doing the one thing that undermines every attempt that Satan makes on us.

The French film Cuties has rocked our culture with controversy. It is the ultimate example of a concept that Hollywood has long played with; where do you draw the line between depiction and exploitation? In this episode Chad and Andre welcome back Wes Newman to break down the morality and immorality surrounding and permeating Hollywood today and when to take a stand when Hollywood gets too comfortable toeing the line.

The West Meadow Show - The Political Itch

Andrew Breitbart was fond of saying "Politics is down stream of culture." Though the team has avoided politics to focus on the culture, Chad and Andre bring on Zach Federico and Wes Newman to finally scratch that political itch. From world economics and their impact on the United States policy, to "What the heck is a Euphonium?" the guys have a great time with our first, true, fully off the cuff conversation.
