509: Beak Wizard

Here’s the church, here’s the steeple, open the door, but where’s the people? Church attendance has been in decline for decades. Among people aged between 18 and 24, the incidence of religious affiliation is only 30.7%. If it were to drop below 30%, a special alarm will go off inside the Pope’s hat, and he’ll take off his hat and there’ll be a special golden telephone under there, ringing. He’ll pick it up.

“Hello, Pope speaking.”

He’ll hold his hand over the receiver and mouth the words “it’s god” to a cloister of bishops while waving his hand in a shoo-ing motion. The rest is between him and the big guy. That bit’s above our paygrade.

In this one, Steve accidentally rents a cape. And Joe takes us to Beak Street, a commercial hub for high-flying bird fashion. Well, what are you waiting for? Listen it up.
