Glenn and Randy sit down with Chris Matheson, author of “The Story of God: A Biblical Story of Love (and Hate)” and its follow-up “The Trouble with God: A Divine Comedy about Judgment (and Misjudgment). In this episode, we discuss his general interest in religion, his career in film starting as co-creator of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and the comedy gold he first found in the Bible for “The Story with God” and The Book of Mormon for his newest book, “The Trouble with God.”
