Before introducing the guest, the Dudes reflect on times when common phrases were misused by people in their lives. As we all know, Bakers can’t be choosy.
Chris is credited for a BeatiDudes first by having a PR firm reach out to the Dudes to arrange this special interview that involved a flight from Pittsburg to North Texas. On the show, we learn about Chris’ work in the wealth management world and his calling to create a “Faith in Finance” scoring tool so that anyone can uncover hidden investments in their portfolio that are counter to their personal beliefs.
On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes honor YouTube Superfan Chris with a special 100-point bonus. Then the Dudes have to act like a Paranoid Conspiracy Theorist to address the question, “If I started a religious order, it would focus on [blank].”
After the break, Chris shares his love for sending gifts of perpetual prayer when people are in mourning or even in times of celebration. Link to request your own perpetual prayers below.
