After some obligatory coverage of the sometimes-funny-sometimes-sad antics of Texas Rep. Randy Weber during this year's "Washington - A Man of Prayer" event, Cory and Scott settle in for an exploration of two major chapters of Ethiopian history: a bit of biological anthropology from the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs (Lucy!) and the middle of the twentieth century during the reign of Haile Selassie. This is a fascinating individual, and he leads us to the inspiration of a new religion... Rastafarianism! How are the two related, and what does Rastafarianism teach? What is a rasta and what informs their theology? How does this religion fit in with the ones that came before it? Please stay tuned until the end of the episode for a very, very special announcement! (Seriously. We've got exciting news.)
