S1E10 Wormwood

Gimme that old time religion, it’s good enough for me!

In honor of Holy Week, and what has turned out to be a very subdued Easter this year, we decided to take a gander at some of the more esoteric stories in the Bible. Join us as we review The Resident’s 1998 album Wormwood: Curious Stories From the Bible. These are the stories you don’t hear in church: Murder, sex, penis mutilation, disembodied fingers. Turns out the Good Book is, well… multi-faceted. Complex.

Each song tells a different story, sung from the perspective of the characters involved. If you are interested in finding these passages, there is a comprehensive list of chapter and verse here.

You can learn all about The Residents here. And if you are in the mood to murder your thirst, check out Liquid Death.
