Mr. Richter Turns up the Heat!

The season finale of Season Three is now available for you to listen to online--it's an episode that you won't want to miss! Tell us how you think it stacks up to 1-13 "Like a Good Neighbor" and 2-12 "Connections," the other two season finales we've talked about, and consider the following questions:
  • Was it a good idea for the kids to change their rooms around? What aspects of this storyline did you like best?
  • Do you think Mr. Darty, the lawyer, is comical or annoying?
  • Was the relationship between Maya and Grace an important part of this episode for you?
  • Did you like hearing more from Mr. Richter, and seeing him and John interact more? What did you think about getting a different side of him regarding Maya?
Whatever thoughts you have on "A Case against Grace" will be gladly received, but you only have until 1PM Monday for them to get read out on the podcast!

Edit: If you missed the deadline for reviewing 3-12 but still want your voice heard about the season finale, leave a comment below and we'll include some of your thoughts in next week's podcast. :-)

Supplementary Material for Podcast #41

DGL Albums on iTunes
Thanks to Max T., we have all sorts of technical information about the DGL albums available to download via iTunes. Consider these things before buying!
  • Each album costs US$5.95.
  • They are in DRM-protected AAC (.m4b) format, which means you can only play them on Apple products (such as iTunes and Quicktime) and about 500 different MP3 players.
  • Instead of getting twelve individual files, you get one file with twelve chapters so you can skip to the next episode.
  • Although you can burn the album on to a CD with iTunes, you may not be able to have each episode as a separate track (if you know how to burn chapters as separate tracks on iTunes, let us know!).
  • The quality is only 64kbps, and a short tag from Audible.com is added on to the beginning.
  • No specials are available.
And if you decide that you don't want to risk purchasing from iTunes, the tried-and-true shopcbh.org has every episode of DGL available for buying in high-quality MP3 format!

More About "Saved by Grace"

The song featured in "A Story to Tell" and which was discussed briefly and quoted from in this week's podcast was "Saved by Grace." This hymn was published in 1891, after Fanny heard a message that Christians do not need to fear death. She said about "Saved by Grace," "There is one hymn I have written which has never been published. I call it my soul's poem. Sometimes when I am troubled, I repeat it to myself, for it brings comfort to my heart." The song is about the Christian's longing for Heaven, but also acknowledges that we have a mission to fulfill while we're here on earth. If you have a favorite Fanny Crosby song or you've found any other connections between her and Grace, let us know!

Telling Stories!

For those of you wondering when podcast #40 will be out, our thoughts on "Cosmic Confusion" should be out on Thursday. Sorry for the delay!
Season Three races toward its end with this weekend's episode "A Story to Tell." Come along to Grace's Bible study and find out what the kids are learning!
  • Which of the three Morrisons (Justin, Mikey, or Haley) did you think responded to Grace's challenge the best? Whom did you identify with the most?
  • Was it good to hear from Matt again?
  • What Grace scene did you like the best: the first scene at Grace's Bible study as they talk about Fanny Crosby or the scene at the park with Grace talking to Mikey and Maya about the value of their stories? Why?
  • Were you surprised at the ending? Was it a good way to finish the episode?
We're looking forward to hearing your opinion on "A Story to Tell" (don't forget to give the show a rating!). You have until 2PM Wednesday to get your thoughts in!

  • What do you think of the character of Lana? Was Caleb's attitude toward her humorous?
  • Was Maya's "confusion" easy to relate to? Did you feel that she was at fault at all for it?
  • Was the lesson (or lessons) of this show well-presented? What messages came across the clearest?
