It's bring your daughter to work day!  Well, not really - but Phil does anyway.  His 16 year-old daughter Sydney has just released an album of thoughtful, acoustic songs, and she visits the podcast to talk about it and play a few live!  (Check out Sydney Vischer on iTunes or SydneyVischerMusic on Facebook to see the whole album.)

Alien-searching super telescopes?  Man of Steel sponsored sermons?  And what's a Christian to do when their faith is lumped in with "crazy religion?"  Phil and Skye both have colds and Christian is out of town, but thought-provoking conversation still manages to occur.  More or less.
