The Podcast for Nerdy Christians is back for Season Two and our AUDIO IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN SEASON ONE! This season we are tackling single pieces of nerd canon to see how they can inform our walks as followers of Jesus. We're also reading through Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in our ongoing book group.

Today, we are looking at grief in the film Avengers: Endgame. Of course, spoilers abound.
