In episode twenty-five of The Babylon Bee podcast, editor-in-chief Kyle Mann and creative director Ethan Nicolle welcome back Brian Godawa to talk about epic films where individuals are willing to live and die for transcendent values set in all-encompassing civilization-shaking settings, and a lot of people get stabbed. They also talk about the secular-sacred divide in films and the genre of "Christian" movies.
