JS /// Religious Freedom, Facebook, Politics, & More… /// E051

August 29, 2019

This was recorded quite a few months ago so we are excited to finally bring it to you.  Today we are with JS…a fellow boilermaker (Purdue Grad) and all around interesting person.  JS comes to us with some very unique and thought provoking insights that make us want to record an entire year of episodes.


He is a musician and has been writing, recording and performing for 25 years.  After studying engineering, he went on to focus his energy in a band that would tour coast to coast.  Currently, his music career has him playing drums with Crisis Actor.  He also maintains his micro-label and collective called elle 2.0. 


He loves buffalo wings and happens to be a member of a religious institution in Indiana, which leads to a very interesting discussion and better understanding of what the Satanic Temple is and how we all probably share many ideals with it.
