Download this episode Welcome back to PrimalCast! In this episode 35, titled "Better Than You," Jeff and Allen discuss our human tendency to put things off, and then dive into the topic of Discipleship. Coming from the perspective that the concept of discipleship is not just about making Christians better, but about making new disciples, Jeff & Allen talk at length about how we as American Christians make discipleship into something it was never intended to be - specifically a "boundary-marker" or "checklist Christianity."

Download this episode In this hard-hitting episode 33, Jeff & Allen talk about the concept of "Primal"  and the history that led them to where they are in life today, namely the White Bread culture they both found themselves in, and their resulting reaction to it. According to the Urban Dictionary, the term White Bread "implies profound cultural naïvete, blind consumerism, and an unquestioning "follower" mindset. Common trappings of the whitebread lifestyle include golf, Kenny G and Enya CDs, SUVs, an irrational fixation on lawn care, Golden Retrievers, nominally Christian religious beliefs, Old Navy clothing, moderate to conservative political views, bad Chardonnay, equally bad espresso, cookie-cutter houses, Bath & Body Works hygiene products, and very white-collar employment." Bad Chardonnay? Oh well... this back-story as told by Jeff and Allen seques into a conversation about community and accountability, and while the conversation briefly edges into some frank & explicit phrases, nothing here is meant to offend or insult.

Download this episode In this episode, Jeff & Allen introduce the topic and talk about being warriors - what it means to be a warrior and how to be a warrior. The subject came up after Jeff recently posted some videos on his website Primal Faith - and talked about how we like the idea of being a warrior much more than the actual battle. After Allen gives a brief summary of his trip to Lesotho, Africa last week, they talk at length about men as warriors. In the discussion, the corresponding topics of taking responsibility for our own actions and rites of passage (initiation) are brought into the conversation and Allen reads a portion of William Wordsworth's poem, Character of a Happy Warrior as they conclude by talking about purpose and our life's cause. Another installation of the  "In The Holster" segment is included in this episode 31, and is a conversation about a recent news reporter here in Florida and the concealed carry licenses issued in 2016. Don't miss it! Thanks for joining the conversation. You can send us email at, comment on this episode below, or give us a shout on Twitter or Facebook.

Welcome to episode 30 - Full Protest! In this not to be missed episode, you'll be laughing, crying and swerving off the road, or we'll give you your money back! Jeff and Allen talk in frank openness about the recent protests against Trump by the media, the women of America and the hypocrisy of the Church. Since this is a slight departure from our normal deep, meaningful conversation, we hereby state that our views expressed in this episode are not necessarily the views of the Average Joe, but they probably should be! As an added bonus, this episode begins with the long-lost, never-before-heard Sex Intro... and closes with a bang (lighten up, people). Enjoy!!

Welcome to episode 29 of PrimalCast! In this continuation of the conversation about marriage that Jeff & Allen started in episode 28, we dig a little deeper into marriage and how we all have a tendency to get comfortable (lazy) in our relationships. When Allen talks about the "why" changing as we grow and the relationship changes, Jeff reminds us of the Biblical story of building a tower - implying we need to prepare for change, growth and accountability. The conversation moves to the concept of community - intentional accountability with a small group of people who can call you out, call you back, and with whom you "do life" together - even as a couple. "What if there were no secrets?" Jeff asks, and Allen moves to the subject of Personal Rights and why anger creeps into our lives. This episode introduces a brand-new segment, titled "Shut Your Mouth" which we are having fun with, and think you'll love. Enjoy the show, and share PrimalCast with your friends and family! Thanks for joining us!!

Welcome to PrimalCast Episode 28: Tennessee Whiskey! We invite you to join the conversation as Jeff and Allen talk about marriage - and explore why we get married, staying married, and putting in the work as opposed to taking the path of least resistance. In the face of difficult times, we talk about marriage as a partnership, often starting out on pure emotion but then moving to choosing to love as reality sets in.  Commitment versus laziness, emotion versus work - this is a tough, hard-hitting and timely episode. Download this episode  Download this episode During the "In The Holster" segment, they talk about handgun holsters, and specifically name Sticky Holsters and that other holster Allen can't wear. It would be great - if you purchase a Sticky Holster - to tell them you heard about them on PrimalCast. They do not sponsor our show - we just love their product and featured it in this segment. Also in this episode, Allen talks about a poem written by his grandfather back in 1933. For those who asked, here is the poem: rc patterson poem
