  • 00:00 – Introduction

  • 09:04 – Free-for-All (Grad School Experiences)
  • 29:09 – Main Topic (Communicating with Dr. Paustian)

On episode SIXTY of Let the Bird Fly! Wade and Mike welcome Rev. Dr. Mark Paustian from Martin Luther College in (wonderful) New Ulm, MN to discuss communications, theology, apologetics, preaching, and even story-telling. Before getting to the main topic, Mike discusses the prologue to the Gospel according to St. John, which ends with Mike having to cut-off Wade. In the free-for-all all three of the guys discuss their experiences in graduate school, and this segment also end with Mike cutting-off Wade (this almost seems to be a pattern, I wonder why?).

In the main topic Dr. Paustian discusses his area of expertise–communications. This leads to a conversation that ranges from St. Augustine and C.S. Lewis, to preaching and apologetics, and even a discussion about the importance of story-telling. If you’re interested in the book Dr. Paustian referenced you can find it right here: Human Communication as Narration by Walter R. Fisher.
