About Magnified Pod

Welcome to Magnified PodPods from the Penalty Box! In season three, we discuss culture, religion, politics, and bands from the '90s Christian skate-punk genre.

Hosts Andrew and John both grew up in the Evangelical Christian world and have survived to tell the story. Our favorite band as teenagers was MxPx, and on season one of Magnified Pod, we went deep on the band, talking through each album track-by-track. In our second season, we did the same with Five Iron Frenzy. Now we're tackling different genres, season by season.

We share our thoughts on the '90s "Christian Bookstore Alternate Universe" scene we were immersed in, the alternative music that formed us, our high school bands, changing religious views, the dire state of the world (and sometimes, the church), the music and culture we're into these days, and whatever comes up in the moment. We’ve also interviewed band members, producers, filmmakers, and artists, and had fascinating, profound, and silly conversations along the way.

It's about time for a podcast at our house, and it wouldn't be the same without you.
