Episode 1: Pride and Prejudice, Part 1

In which Nathan Alberson, Brandon Chasteen, and Pastor Jake Mentzel introduce themselves to the world of podcasting. Brandon provides a rootin’ tootin’ Texas introduction to the world of Jane Austen. Jake talks about how he first experienced Pride and Prejudice in its most obnoxious and Keira-Knightleyian form. Nathan could not be less enthusiastic about Chiclits chewing gum. Then Brandon and Jake are forced to leap to Elizabeth Bennet’s defense when Nathan posits that she might be kind of annoying if you met her in real life.
