The truth is that the offender has no control over whether or not you are offended. Only you can grant them permission to offend you by then being offended. I choose to not let others offend me, because ultimately all I can control is myself (not others). If I didn't like what I heard on a podcast, I would simply choose not to listen.

I just listened to the episode again and I have to say, I'm surprised this is the issue they are getting flack for. This episode is rich with controversial topics. This is to say, if you are a regular listener, you know what to expect. As a regular listener, I know that I may not always agree with what the team says. I also know these are some of the kindest, most welcoming, hardest working, and compassionate people I *know*. The team has worked hard to create a welcoming environment where everyone is safe.

I have laughed my butt off to some of the comments they have made and have wanted to turn off the iPod at others...and I reckon I have turned it off once or twice.

I am not here to defend the podcast or the round table. As you can see, they have plenty of followers to do that for them. But don't sweat it. You know your Faith, you know your beliefs and you know what some others think of them. So don't hold on to it...there will be another victim tomorrow. Listen to the show for the info and entertainment. If you get hung up on those comments, this show probably isn't going to be your cup of tea. But, I hear what you're saying...
This is exactly how I feel!! Well said two-foxes.

All the guys on the podcast are the salt of the earth and are probably the most christian people out there with there charity work and very giving attitude. I for one will be humbled if i ever meet them offended by any of them never thanks podcast guys and keep up the great work.

I usually lurk these boards, and have been lurking for years - but I feel the need to reply. I have been listening to the podcast for years, and I must say that the team has made comments that could offend just about anyone and everyone.

However, I find this kind of humor refreshing - I am really tired of the PC "watch what you say" attitude that is mainstream today. And also, many times they are making jokes about themselves as well...

Amen! Their no-holds-barred sense of humor is part of what makes the podcast so great!

I'm catholic. I went to catholic school elementary and high school. I honestly can't even remember the comment that was made. Here is my advice... If you don't like the show... Don't listen. There are tons of disney podcasts out there that go out of the way to make sure they offend no one. I listen to the ones I like and I do not listen to the ones I don't. These are the choices we make everyday... In the shows we watch, music we listen to etc. These podcasters have a sarcastic sense of humor.. And that is why I enjoy the show and do not take offense. I hope they never get to the point where they censor themselves so much that they become just one of those disney podcasts that are all sugar and sunshine.

Amen. I hope they never censor themselves to the point that they are just like any other podcast (sugar coated). I love their humor, thier compassion and kindness towards all shows that the humor is just that...not a slam.

Talking It is funny to me

I think part of many problems today is the fact that everyone is too d@mn sensitive. Down with political correctness!!!

Agreed, and I hope they never change. I appreciate their humor, honesty and no holds attitude. I have a stressful job and this podcast keeps me grounded in reality. I've listened for years now (heard every episode) and can honestly say Tuesday is my favorite day of the work week. Where else can you hear about the "Thanksgiving soup kitchen" and "who wants more bad"?
