St. Luke of the Cool Hand once said, “Dyin’? Boy, he can have this little life any time he wants to. Do ya hear that? Are ya hearin’ it? Come on. You’re welcome to it, ol’ timer. Let me know you’re up there. Come on. Love me, hate me, kill me, anything. Just let me know it. I’m just standin’ in the rain talkin’ to myself.” In episode 107, the intrepid trio use the Netflix show, “Nobody’s Looking.” The show depicts a bureaucratic organization of guardian angels in which the uniformed “angelus” invisibly protects humans beings, always following the rules of an absent Boss. With the arrival of Uli, a new “angelus” that starts questioning the established rules, the whole system slowly sinks into crisis as the series joyfully plays with consequences and the interactions between humans and angels. Anyway, we use the show as a jumping off point for discussing divine authority. In other words, if there is no G-d watching, what would you do? And why? To skip our mishigas start listening at the 15:08 mark, but you’ll miss this episode’s no context hashtag #HamsterDamn. Skip at your own peril. Click here to give it a listen.
